Adel Abdessemed: Je suis innocent
PARIS  •  Centre Pompidou  •  Ongoing

For over twenty years, the Paris-based, Algerian conceptual artist Adel Abdessemed (b. 1971) has made use of a wide range of media, including sculpture, video, drawing, performance, and photography. On view at the Centre Pompidou are twenty-five works spanning from 1990 to 2012, including such seminal works as Décor (2011-12), Telle mère tel fils (2008), Usine (2008), Bourek (2005), and a new large-scale bronze sculpture, Coup de tête (2012) depicting French soccer star Zinedine Zidane's head-butt, created especially for the exhibition and installed on the museum's plaza.

Accompanying the exhibition is a fully illustrated catalogue, available in both English and French editions (Steidl/Centre Pompidou).

Also recently published is Adel Abdessemed: Conversation with Pier Luigi Tazzi (Actes Sud).
