Exhibition

The first major French exhibition devoted to Fabienne Verdier's work will take place at the Musée Granet in Aix-en-Provence after the retrospective at Hong Kong City Hall in May 2014. She's a major contemporary artist whose career has always seen her venture off the beaten track to bring us art imbued with sensitivity and strength, contradictions and unity.

From October 15 until January 5, 2020, in addition to the 50 monumental paintings that reflect the great periods of his 40 years of painting, the artist shows us about twenty additional works - never exposed - related to his two years of work on Sainte-Victoire and in Cézanne's landscapes.

Monumental paintings of Sainte-Victoire, preparatory drawings, beautiful gouaches show us a Sainte-Victoire always reinvented by the greatest artists.

The exhibition will include three sections introducing the artist's work, from her beginnings to today, the respective study of calligraphy in China and the dialogue between music and painting, and will conclude by works painted in nature. The final section, work in progress, will depict several of the artist's stays in the Aix area in the last year and the foundation of a mobile studio-laboratory, the "atelier-nomade", to focus on the theme in Cézanne's own land.

This is more than a retrospective this is a showcase for the bonds between calligraphy, painting, music, movement, gesture, body and the relationship with Sainte-Victoire Mountain in a presentation of fifty-odd large pieces that act as thought-provoking analogical footnotes.

Exhibition curators: Fabienne Verdier and Bruno Ely, Musée Granet head curator.
