A major artist on the contemporary scene, the American sculptor Charles Ray is widely known for his enigmatic yet beguiling work. The very distinctive aesthetic of his oeuvre asks questions of us and leads us on a contemplative journey. His current exhibitions in Paris, taking place in two essential contemporary art spaces, the Centre Pompidou and the Bourse du Commerce – Pinault, constitute a major cultural event. Don't miss it during your stay at the Hotel Paris France.
A lifetime devoted to sculpture
Born into an artistic milieu, Charles Ray discovered sculpture at a very young age and never ceased to be interested in it. From the most archaic forms to the most recent expressions, he has built up an almost encyclopaedic knowledge of this art, leading him to question it and push back its limits. Each of his works is therefore the culmination of a long journey and a reflection as much on our time as on representation in general. And you will be able to discover this for yourself by visiting these two exhibitions.
Two major contemporary art spaces
The Centre Pompidou, an essential player in bringing contemporary art to the public, is renowned for its ambitious and cutting-edge exhibitions. It was therefore only natural that this institution devote a retrospective to Charles Ray. Similarly, the brand-new Bourse du Commerce – Pinault offers a showcase for both unknown artists and those who dominate the current scene, such as Charles Ray. The two art spaces have carefully coordinated their efforts to bring us, from February 6th to June 20th, 2022, a fascinating journey into the aesthetic landscape of Charles Ray.
Contemporary art plays a prominent role in the cultural scene in Paris. Whether you are an enthusiast or merely curious, the two exhibitions dedicated to Charles Ray are a rare event that it would be a shame to miss. You can already book your tickets on the museum websites. And your Hotel Paris France team will be happy to help you make arrangements for your visits!
