FRED FOREST

Exhibition, Centre Pompidou, Paris, France.


From July 12, 2017 until August 28, 2017
Devoted to Fred Forest, media-man and pioneer of a participatory, sociological art based on the use of modern and contemporary tools of communication, the exhibition takes up the notion of territory in a survey of his work as a whole. Modelled on the narrative of his Territoire du m2 artistique, created in 1977, it follows the artist’s trajectory from his screen-paintings and other spaces to his media-critical actions/performances on territories both local and planetary. Inhabiting a space between the real and the imaginary, the show presents a selection of archive documents and previously unseen works, offering visitors an opportunity to view 40 years of agitation and commitment.
