Gérard Fromanger Exhibithion

Back in Paris we decided to check out an exhibition at the Centre Pompidou also known as the Pompidou Centre in English which houses the Musée National d'Art Moderne, the largest museum for modern art in Europe. It was designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano; British architect Richard Rogers; and Italian architect Gianfranco Franchini, assisted by Ove Arup & Partners. With its exposed skeleton of tubes for mechanical systems it definitely doesn't look like your typical museum. My brother was raving about an artist who was being featured there by the name of Gérard Fromanger. A french artist born in 1939 whose associated with the French artistic movement of the mid 60's called "Figuration Narrative" which resembles American pop art but with more political awareness so to speak. One of the gallery comments mentions that ''he's been described as a social critic who takes a political position without neglecting the poetic dimension.'' Definitely one of the best exhibitions I've ever been to.
