Collective exhibition « Un art autre », Levy Gorvy, London, Great-Britain

Un art autre centres on the innovative reassessments of abstraction that emerged in postwar Paris. Un art autre, a term meaning ‘Art of another kind’ was coined by legendary art critic and curator Michel Tapié in 1952. The artists involved provided a distinctively European parallel to the American Abstract Expressionist movement. This exhibition will offer an insight into the allure of Paris in the 1950s and ’60s: a hub of cross-cultural exchange, intellectual activity, and artistic re-invention. It will feature works by artists Sam Francis, Joan Mitchell, Jean Paul Riopelle, Pierre Soulages, and Zao Wou-Ki.

Zao Wou-Ki Collector at the Musée d'art de Pully

In 2015, the Musée d’art de Pully saw great success with an exceptional exhibition of engravings by Zao Wou-Ki. Midway between Western abstraction and Asian calligraphy, the La Lumière et le Souffle exhibition enabled visitors to discover stamps by the master of lyrical abstraction. To mark the new exhibition, the Museum has teamed up with the museum of the Hospice Saint-Roch d’Issoudun and Musée Cernuschi of Asian art in Paris, to show for the first time and in a single institution, the personal collection of a major Franco-Chinese painter.
