This retrospective marks the 20th anniversary of the artist’s death. Famous by the age of 25, César enjoyed an artistic career of more than 50 years. Through more than a hundred pieces – from the most famous of his major works, as well as representatives of lesser-known series – this exhibition offers an unprecedented overview of the career of one of the greatest sculptors of his time. At the height of his fame at the turn of the 1970s, César was an emblematic representative of the art of the period. Rejecting the conventions of both classics and moderns, he developed an original approach that mediated between the intensity of the experiment nature of art of his day and the wisdom that came from the patient and laborious practice of assemblage. Find out more about the César exhibition from the Centre Pompidou’s website.
