XXL Monumental contemporary prints
Immerse yourself in the world of contemporary printmaking, meeting its most spectacular and heterodox productions! Five hundred years after Albrecht Dürer, whose impressive Arch of Triumph Maximilian I assembled no less than 36 printed sheets, the artists are more than ever in favor of the large format, the print is no longer a tool for the diffusion of the image but a field of experimentation and a way of doing work. Pierre Alechinsky, Georg Baselitz, Daniel Buren, Gunter Damisch, Jim Dine, David Hockney, Frédérique Loutz, Richard Serra, Jose Maria Sicilia, Frank Stella, Antoni Tàpies, Djamel Tatah ... the exhibition brings together many of the major artists of the fifty last years.
