Eduardo Chillida – La gravedad insistente,
TOULOUSE  •  Les Abattoirs  •  6 April - 26 August 2018
 
Bringing together over 60 artworks in various media the exhibition Eduardo Chillida – La gravedad insistente, at Les Abattoirs in Toulouse focuses on the sculptor’s relationship to space and the gravity of materials. Devised with exceptional support from the Fundación Eduardo Chillida-Pilar Belzunce, it highlights how the Spanish artist breathed new life into the art of sculpture from the 1950s into the early 2000s. From the early 1950s, Spanish artist Eduardo Chillida (1924-2002) contributed to the renewal of the kind of sculpture that challenged the constraints of materials. He therefore opted at the start of the 50s to create his sculptures directly with fire, in the forge, and refused the traditional duplication of sculpture in bronze.

Associating wrought ironwork with modern sculpture in new and original ways, he plays on the refusal of the pedestal and encompasses the surrounding environment, particularly empty space. He thus contributed to a redefinition of sculpture that was taking place on a global scale. Consistently reflecting on sculpture’s relationship to space, Chillida thus spent nearly 20 years designing the Wind Combs, based on the Atlantic coastline, which he envisaged as a sculpture, an architectural space, and a soundscape subjected to the laws of the sea and wind, and which was finally inaugurated in 1977.

In Tune with the World
PARIS  •  Louis Vuitton Foundation  •  11 April - 27 August 2018
 
 

Throughout the galleries of the Frank Gehry building, In Tune with the World unveils a new selection of artists from the collection, of several different mediums, bringing together modern and contemporary works, most of which have never before been exhibited in these spaces.

This reflects today’s questions about man’s place in the universe and the bonds that tie him to his surrounding environment and living world, highlighting the interconnections between humans, animals, plants, and even inanimate objects.
