Gérard Fromanger

Solo exhibition


Centre Pompidou, Paris, France

The name of Gérard Fromanger is linked to a series of patterns, figures and events that build an artistic, cultural and social history of fifty years – his friendship with Jacques Prévert, May 68, red silhouettes, people on the streets, playful colours, an iconic movie incollaboration with Jean-Luc Godard, essays by Gilles Deleuze, Michel Foucault and Félix Guattari, Narrative Figuration, painting and politics. Such a list retraces the decor, recreates the atmosphere in which Fromanger’s work acquired a large recognition in the 1970s. But, Fromanger’s project is not limited to this list and, in spites its frequent mutations, his work affirms a strong continuity: a painting both open to the world and fully self-conscient. From 1964 to 2015, with a selection of 50 works, some unseen before, the exhibition aims to unveil the different expressions of this project.

The gallery presented three solo exhibitions of Gérard Fromanger between 1973 and 1977 and lends two paintings: “Florence, rue d’Orchampt”, recently shown at the FIAC 2015, and “Bouge” from the series “Questions”.
