Curated by Catherine Kwai, ๐˜Š๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜จ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ฑ๐˜ฉ๐˜บ ๐˜™๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ฑ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ๐˜ฅ๐˜บ begins with Mathieuโ€™s early works which emphasise calligraphic gesture and speed extending into the paintings from the โ€œcosmic shiftโ€ period starting from 1984. His potent intrinsic energy for boundless abstraction is exemplified in the exhibition by the six-metre-wide canvases that Mathieu specially created for his Grand Palais Retrospective in 1978. Marking the artistโ€™s centenary in 2021, this exhibition celebrates Mathieuโ€™s fierce and poetic expressivity as well as his bold visionary spirit while introducing this French pioneer of free abstraction to a new audience.
