“César in Context” at Luxembourg & Dayan

New York…Beginning May 5, 2016, Luxembourg & Dayan will present César in Context, an exhibition organized to celebrate the radically inventive and mutable practice of renowned French artist César (1921-1998).  By placing a group of his key works in juxtaposition with contemporaneous masterpieces by American and European peers, the show draws attention to the most powerful tool of the artist’s practice: a lifelong penchant for experimentation with an ever-expanding arsenal of materials and techniques. Works on view trace the development of César’s oeuvre through his accumulated language of breakthroughs, which placed him not only within Nouveau Réalisme with which he is most often associated, but also in league with such postwar art movements as Arte Povera, Neo-Dada, and Pop Art.
