Frank Gehry

November 2014

Exhibition, Centre Pompidou, Paris, France, until 26 January 2015.
In the 1960s, Gehry mixed with the Californian art scene and became close to several artists, including Ed Ruscha, Richard Serra, and Claes Oldenburg. His encounter with the works of Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns opened the way to a reconfiguration of his architectural style, and notably he began to introduce the use of poor materials such as cardboard, sheet metal, and industrial wire netting. From then on, all of his projects questioned his own means of expression. This retrospective provides an overall interpretation of his work through models and original drawings, retracing the lines of force in the career of one of the key figures in contemporary architecture.
