Jean Paul Riopelle | Essence of studios
Guest curator: Yseult Riopelle
In the summer of 2023, the Fondation Marguerite et Aimé Maeght will present a monographic exhibition dedicated to the great artist Jean Paul Riopelle as part of “Riopelle 100”, the centenary of his birth. The exhibition will show Riopelle’s work as it has never been seen before – abstract and figurative painting, sculpture, ceramics, tapestry, engraving – thanks to numerous exclusive loans and the curatorship of his daughter, Yseult Riopelle.
This exhibition at the Fondation is the occasion for a special summer programme: concerts, film screenings on Jean Paul Riopelle, and the great return of dance to the Fondation with Noé Soulier’s “Passages” in sets that Riopelle had imagined for Merce Cunningham in 1967.
