Jean-Michel Alberola is a truly mysterious artist


His new exhibition will be an adventure of different details, forms, styles.

Paris-based artist Jean-Michel Alberola is headed to Palais de Tokyo – the best contemporary gallery in the French capital, that is – for a massive solo show, his first in Paris for nearly 20 years. Meaning, don’t miss this one.

Described as “at once one of the best-known and most mysterious artists of his generation”, Alberola is impossible to pin down. He paints, he makes sculptures, he constructs installations, he makes neon lights, he makes films, he paints murals. His work is poetic, political, philosophical; yet never pretentious. This exhibition – entitled L'aventure des details – will showcase exactly that: the incredibly broad range of his work. And as such, it’s guaranteed to be a feast for the senses. Catch it now. It might be your last chance in a long while.  

‘L'aventure des details’ runs from 19 Feb-16 May at Palais de Tokyo.
