William Eggleston

William Eggleston / Beatriz Milhazes

Jusqu'au 21 juin / Until June, 21

William Eggleston, Paris

4 avril › 21 juin 2009 / April 4 › June 21, 2009
For the last three years, William Eggleston has photographed the city of Paris as part of a commission for the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain. After his very first retrospective in 2001, this exhibition marks his second solo show at the Fondation Cartier. The exhibition provides an exceptional occasion to bring together William Eggleston's distinctive pictures and his recent paintings, an unknown aspect of his work that has never before been presented to the public.

Beatriz Milhazes

4 avril › 21 juin 2009 / April 4 › June 21, 2009

Born in 1960 in Rio de Janeiro, Beatriz Milhazes emerged on the Brazilian art scene in the mid-1980s. Exhibited in many galleries and several international biennials, her work is represented in the collections of some of the world's greatest museums. Intricately layered with a profusion of ornamental motifs, her vibrant and hypnotic paintings refer to sources as diverse as the Colonial baroque, high modernism, and popular Brazilian art.

Prochaine exposition

7 juil. › 29 nov. 2009 / July 7 › Nov. 29, 2009

Born in the Streets—Graffiti, an exhibition devoted to graffiti and street art. Occupying the entire gallery space of the Fondation Cartier, as well as the building's façade and surrounding garden, the exhibition will bring to light the extraordinary expansion of an artistic movement that developed in the streets of New York in the early 1970s to rapidly become a worldwide phenomenon.

During the month of June, see videos about the artists in the exhibition.
Starting today with Seen (in English) and Olivier Kosta-Théfaine (in French)
