Objects of Wonder
British Sculpture 1950s - Present
Februrary 1 - May 27, 2019
Art from the Tate Collection
With around 75 masterworks from the collection of Tate London, Objects of Wonder at the PalaisPopulaire shows how British artists revolutionized contemporary sculpture after World War II. The show is truly amazing. Alongside world-famous works, from Henry Moore's abstract figures to Damien Hirst's formaldehyde lamb, visitors can make an incredible number of discoveries. Examples are tender shell sculpture of the Surrealist Eileen Agar or the performances in which the feminist artist Helen Chadwick transformed the body into a living sculpture in the 1960s. At the same time, the interplay with sculptures from eight decades in Objects of Wonder will enable visitors to experience the architecture of the PalaisPopulaire in a spectacular way.
