    figures in today s art field to design an exhibition for ARC the Museum s contemporary art arm Untitled 2005 Roman Ondák Measuring the Universe 2007 Courtesy de l artiste Collection Pinakothek der Moderne Munich MoMA New York et Tate Modern Londres Vue de l exposition Roman Ondák au Musée d Art moderne de la Ville de Paris 2012 Photographe Marc Domage Vue de l exposition Roman Ondák au Musée d Art moderne de la Ville de Paris 2012 Photographe Marc Domage Ondák s work is often based on the various contexts in which he is invited to do projects Focusing on reminiscences minute differences and a sense of déjà vu he uses memory as a core element while leaving the viewer s imagination to range freely In this way his exhibitions become repositories for individual and group experiences Aiming at more than a simple retrospective Ondák sees this exhibition as the chance to provide an overview of his current concerns Among the exhibited works is Measuring the Universe here in its first French version which weaves an intangible link with his earlier works In this ongoing open ended piece which requires the participation of the museum personnel and the public each visitor can see his or her first name a mark signifying height and date of measuring inscribed on a wall in the exhibition space Thus the piece gradually takes shape according to the number of spectators who agree to take part Ondák s intention is to create unusual situations and points of view through which our way of seeing the outside world changes imperceptibly Since the early 1990s in a complex oeuvre Ondák has been engaging with the heritage of Conceptualism and Minimalism drawing on both global influences and references specific to the region of Central and Eastern

  • Exposition - Christopher Wool - MaM - Paris.fr
    2012 The Musée d Art moderne de la Ville de Paris presents the first exhibition in Paris by Christopher Wool a major figure in the international art scene and one of the most influential contemporary American painters For over 30 years Christopher Wool has been exploring the complexities of abstract painting by constantly questioning the medium with ever fresh means the use of repetition of methods from conceptual and minimal art the adaptation of photographic images and working with such different techniques as spray paint silkscreen and digital reproduction The exhibition which was designed in close collaboration with the artist focuses on more than thirty large format works painted between 2000 and 2011 Christopher Wool who was born in Chicago in 1955 emerged onto the New York scene during the mid 1980 s along with artists Jeff Koons Cady Noland and Robert Gober Wool has always been a painter first and foremost and his approach to the limits of that medium continue to prove an inspiration to a younger generation During the 1990s Wool established himself with work that had a stark street wise aesthetic mostly black and white abstractions of patterns and painterly gestures or stencilled word paintings that directly addressed the viewer with dead pan humour In the new millennium the pictorial construction of his paintings underwent a profound metamorphosis The pictorial elements often spray painted black lines or photographic images of previous pictures silkscreened onto the canvas became more and more compositionally complex and diffuse His recent paintings selected for this exhibition combine silkscreen printing techniques with hand painted passages Between improvisation and composition these paintings in different media expose a hard earned freedom Christopher Wool s work has been the subject of a number of international museum exhibitions including those at the Museum Boymans van Beuningen
