Lee Bae, UNION

February 24 to June 20, 2021
 
Born in South Korea, artist Lee Bae uprooted himself and relocated to Paris in 1989. He believed that immersing himself in a new environment would challenge him to look at himself more objectively.
 
 
 
“We want to break down entrenched ideas of what contemporary art is and who it is for – it’s for all of us,” says curator and managing director, Cheryl Sim.

Some of the European masters in 20th-century European sculpture, including Georges Braque, Joan Miró and Alberto Giacometti, came together to help create La Fondation Maeght. La Fondation was established by Aimé and Marguerite Maeght, in 1964 a visionary couple who were publishers and art dealers, and who represented and were friends with some of the most important artists of the era.

 

 

The Giacometti: A Family of Creators

The Fondation Maeght will propose a unique event in France with the “The Giacometti: a family of creators” exhibition, which will highlight the famous family of artists from the Swiss village of Stampa. Read more…

“If for everyone, The Walking Man symbolises Giacometti’s genius, this sculpture represents for me and my family our commitment, our conviction, our sacrifices, our work and our love, both of the man and of his work.”
