Paris: Thomas Schütte. Three Acts

15.03.2019 - 16.06.2019
Monnaie de Paris 11, quai de Conti 75006 PARIS
The 11 Conti – Monnaie de Paris is delighted to announce the first Parisian retrospective of the major and unclassifiable German artist Thomas Schütte (b. 1954 and living and working in Düsseldorf). A student of Gerhard Richter at the Düsseldorf Kunstakadamie until 1981, the artist is now recognised as one of the principal re-inventors of modern sculpture. His oeuvre is influenced by minimal and conceptual art as well as classical
sculpture and its powerful codes of representation. He has recently enjoyed several major solo exhibitions and European retrospectives of his work including the Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2016), the Beyeler Foundation, Basel (2013) and the Serpentine Gallery, London(2012). He received the Golden Lion award at the Venice Biennale in 2005. His works are included in the collections of the greatest museums and are regularly exhibited.
This retrospective is entitled “Three Acts” a translation of Dreiakter, the most historically important oeuvre of the exhibition, dating from 1982 and belonging to the collection of the Centre Pompidou.
“The aim of my oeuvres is to introduce a twisted question mark into the world.”
