Pace Gallery is pleased to present two large-scale works by French artist Jean Dubuffet on the occasion of FIAC and the 40th anniversary of the artist’s retrospective at the Grand Palais in Paris.
Presented at Pace’s stand at will be Fête villageoise (1976). Line and color collide in this work comprised of collage elements mounted on canvas. Across the street from the main fair in front of the historic Petit Palais, will be the artist’s majestic Welcome Parade (1974-2008). Originally conceived for the East Wing of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., during a collaboration with architect I.M. Pei in the early 1970s, the installation was eventually realized for Pace’s New York exhibition in 2008.
Welcome Parade will remain on view through December 1, 2013 to coincide with an exhibition at Les Arts Décoratifs. Click here to read more on Dubuffet in Paris in The New York Times.
