Dana Schutz ‘Le monde visible’ opens at the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris

This exhibition, focussing on the element of storytelling in Schutz’s work, includes a number of the artist’s largest, complex and heavily-populated compositions, depicting scenes of chaos and destruction, merging the gruesome and grotesque with the comic and absurd. These large-scale paintings are seen alongside more intimate works, as well as drawings, graphics and sculptures, bringing together works spanning the artist’s entire career. It is the first time that the work of this internationally-renowned American artist has been shown in France on this scale.

The exhibition is organised by the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris in close collaboration with the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk. It is accompanied by a French-language catalogue featuring contributions by Fabrice Hergott, director of the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris, Jarrett Earnest, Lauren Groff and Anaël Pigeat, as well as a conversation between Dana Schutz and Anders Kold, curator at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.
