The event is over

Gérard Fromanger : En Chine, à Hu-Xian, de la série « Le désir est partout », août 1974

Gérard Fromanger’s name evokes a host of motifs, people and events that together conjure up half a century of artistic, cultural and social life: his friendship with Jacques Prévert, May 68, red silhouettes, pedestrians on the city streets, the play of colours, a legendary agitational short made with Jean-Luc Godard, texts by Gilles Deleuze, Michel Foucault and Félix Guattari, Figuration Narrative, painting and politics.

While such associations serve to recreate the environment and the atmosphere within which Fromanger made his name as an artist in the 1970s, they are inadequate to characterize an artistic project which, despite the frequent transformations of his work, has remained consistent through half a century: a painting open to the world while never forgetting its own status as painting. Ranging from 1964 to 2015, this exhibition of some fifty works, some rarely seen, seeks to trace the changing expressions of this single project.
