FIAC Hors les Murs 2019 will present an ensemble of over twenty outdoor works in the Jardin Tuileries, together with a solo exhibition of the British artist Glenn Brown in collaboration with Max Hetzler (Berlin, Paris, London…) at the musée national Eugène-Delacroix. On Place Vendôme, in collaboration with Victoria Miro Gallery (London, Venezia), FIAC Hors les Murs extends a carte blanche invitation to the legendary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama to create an in situ artwork for this historically and symbolically charged Parisian venue. In a spectacular and unprecedented development of its Hors les Murs program, for the second consecutive year FIAC presents an ephemeral village of architectural projects on the most iconic of all Parisian squares, the Place de la Concorde.

CY DEAR / Directed by Andrea Bettinetti
October 18, 2019, 7:30 pm / Musée du Louvre, Auditorium

CY DEAR pays homage to Cy Twombly’s career, an American artist from Lexington, Virginia, who emerged as a prominent figure in the mid-1950’s as a contemporary of Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns. Cy Twombly is perhaps best known for his gestural vocabulary in paintings and drawings, in which each line and color is infused with energy, spirituality, and meaning. Digressing from the prior generation of American postwar abstraction, he drew upon the ancient, classical, and modern poetic traditions. The inspiration and innovation also extended to his work in sculpture, photography, and print.
