A joint proposal of Frac Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur and Triangle France, Friche la Belle de Mai

Commissioners: Céline Kopp and Pascal Neveux

Argentinean artist based in Marseille, Carlos Kusnir has been developing for four decades a singular work that pushes the boundaries of painting. With irreverence, he confronts the techniques of the printing and proceeds by collages and assemblages to bring his compositions beyond the surfaces, in a space often three-dimensional and sound, impregnated with tenderness, of humor, of rigor, and daily pains and history. This exhibition, an unprecedented collaboration between Frac and Triangle France at Friche la Belle de Mai, unfolds in two locations and offers a non-chronological look at the artist's practice by combining a selection of important works with new productions.
