Exhibition Francis Bacon/Bruce Nauman, Face à Face: “Art as an experience”

In collaboration with the Centre Pompidou (Paris) the exhibition highlights the careers of Francis Bacon and Bruce Nauman, two greats artists from the 20th century through a selection of 60 artworks.

Two generations of artists, artworks created in different artistic backgrounds but a same vision of art as an experience .

The confrontation – paintings versus video and art installation, the English figurative tradition  against the american underground scene, expressionism and minimalism – allows a deep renewal of the view on those great artistic figures.
