Christopher Wool at the Musée d'Art Moderne
Opening this spring at the MAM (along with an exhibition dedicated to underground comic artist Robert Crumb), is this first exhibition in Paris by New York artist Christopher Wool, a major figure in the international art scene and one of the most influential contemporary American painters. For over 30 years, Christopher Wool has been exploring the complexities of abstract painting by constantly questioning the medium with ever fresh means: the use of repetition, of methods from conceptual and minimal art, the adaptation of photographic images, and working with such different techniques as spray-paint, silkscreen and digital reproduction. The exhibition, which was designed in close collaboration with the artist, focuses on more than 30 large-format works painted between 2000 and 2011. PS The Guggenheim in New York will present a major Christopher Wool retrospective in 2013.
