Le langage des formes continues at the Maison de l’Amérique latine, 217 boulevard Saint-Germain à Paris, until December 15th, 2021.
Initiated by the Galerie A&R Fleury, this two-site retrospective brings together forty-two significant and rare works on the market: bronze sculptures and collages have been chosen to offer an in-depth vision of Alicia Penalba’s work, simultaneously carried out towards the fragmentation of forms, the conquest of spaces and monumentality. A unique opportunity to rediscover her sensitive and singular universe. Present in the collections of many institutions and foundations around the world, Alicia Penalba nevertheless remains relatively forgotten and only too rarely exhibited; this exhibition is an important step in the rediscovery of this essential sculptor, after that of the MALBA in Buenos Aires in 2016-2017.
The gallery is pleased to be partnered with the Maison de l’Amérique latine, the organiser of the first exhibition devoted to Penalba in France after her death in 1988, and active for many years in the promotion of contemporary and twentieth century Latin American artists.
