Description

The Jeu de Paume, in partnership with the exhibition space LE BAL, is devoting a new exhibition to the Italian artistic movement of the 1960s and early 1970s: arte povera. An avant-garde movement, arte povera advocates simplicity in the artistic approach to the image in response to the American Pop Art movement. Using photography, film and video, arte povera is multi-disciplinary.

The exhibition focuses on major figures of the movement as well as artists associated with this trend. There are four themes for this exhibition: experience, image, theatre (at the Jeu de Paume) and the body (at the exhibition space LE BAL). On view from 11 October 2022 to 29 January 2023.

The title of the exhibition celebrates the eponymous work of Giuseppe Penone, "Rovesciare i propri occhi" ('Reversing one's eyes').

Jeu de Paume Paris

Situated in the heart of Paris, in the Tuileries Gardens within a building dating back to 1862, the Jeu de Paume, a centre for art and international creation, has been a landmark site since 2004 for the presentation of images of the 20th and 21st centuries ranging from photography to cinema, and from video to installation and online creation. As a meeting point for artistic fields, the Jeu de Paume reflects on the place of images in art and society, both in terms of their production and their distribution and reception. Its varied and constantly renewed programme of exhibitions, film cycles, courses, meetings, educational activities, workshops and publications brings together established artists and new talent. Its varied and constantly renewed programme of exhibitions, film cycles, classes, meetings, educational activities, workshops and publications brings together established artists and new talent. It is a vibrant place where all kinds of people meet, and it also has an arthouse bookshop, the Rose Bakery café, whose terrace is one of the most beautiful in the Tuileries Gardens, with a breathtaking view of the majestic Place de la Concorde. A magical place where the sunsets are among the most beautiful in Paris with the Obelisk and the Eiffel Tower in view!
