ART: WHEN IN PARIS – BERTRAND LAVIER & ADEL ABDESSEMED
The long awaited Bertrand Lavier retrospective showcases around fifty of his major pieces. The French artist has been working with industrialized objects since the late 60’s, deviated from their initial purpose to be damaged, juxtaposed, stacked.
“Je Suis Innocent” is a major survey of Adel Abdessemed’s work. The show features 25 artworks created between 1990 and 2012, and a new bronze sculpture, “Coup de Tête,” made for the exhibit.
Both exhibits are on view until January 7th, 2013 at Centre Pompidou, 19 Rue Beaubourg, fourth arrondissement, +33 1 44 78 47 99, www.centrepompidou.fr
