Claude Viallat is an important figure in the international contemporary art world. To celebrate this career, the Musée Fabre, Montpellier Agglomeration, hosts a major retrospective exhibition from June 28 to November 2, 2014.
The exhibition, featuring some 150 objects and works of art, retraces his career spanning over half a century. It reveals the extraordinary diversity of his work and draws upon the large collection held by the Musée Fabre, loans from national institutions including The Centre Pompidou, Paris and the artist’s studio in Nîmes. For the first time, a selection of unique pieces from his wife’s collection will be on public display.
Viallat created the exhibition in close collaboration with the Musée Fabre, filling different spaces throughout the museum: the Buren hall, temporary exhibition spaces, the Richier atrium and the Hôtel de Cabrières-Sabatier d’Espeyran.
