“Tinguely – the final collaboration with Yves Klein”
Bernar Venet and Jean Tinguely often ran into each other in the 1960s (when he arrived in New York in 1966, for example, Venet lived in the New Realist’s former studio) and up until Tinguely’s death in 1991. For Venet, Tinguely’s importance on the art scene, his originality as a sculptor, and his ambition, which pushed his work well beyond traditional approaches, are a source of great admiration.
The exhibition is curated by Alexandre Devals, the director of the Venet Foundation
In conjunction with the Tinguely show, the Venet Foundation is also pleased to offer visitors this summer the chance to discover or rediscover the following:
- The sculpture park, which boasts monumental pieces by artists from the collection as well as by Bernar Venet himself
- Diane and Bernar Venet’s Collection of Minimal and Conceptual Art (which includes work by Donald Judd, Richard Serra, Sol LeWitt, Carl Andre, Robert Morris, Lawrence Weiner, Richard Long, and others)
- The Stella Chapel created on site by Frank Stella for the inauguration of the Foundation last year and featuring six of the artist’s recent Great Reliefs
- Two exhibition spaces: the Gallery, where the temporary show is on display, and the Factory, which is home to Venet’s recent work
