To celebrate the centenary of Ellsworth Kelly's birth, the foundation is hosting a landmark exhibition, "Ellsworth Kelly. Shapes and Colors, 1949-2015." This comprehensive retrospective showcases the artist's remarkable career, featuring over 100 works, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, and collages. Organized in collaboration with the Glenstone Museum and the Ellsworth Kelly Studio, the exhibition brings together significant loans from institutions such as the Art Institute of Chicago, Kröller-Müller Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art, as well as private collections. Widely regarded as one of the most influential American abstract painters and sculptors of the 20th century, Ellsworth Kelly's work is characterized by its independence from any particular school or movement. Meanwhile, the Fondation is also hosting "Matisse: The Red Studio," a unique collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York and the SMK - Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen. This exhibition delves into the creation and history of Matisse's 1911 masterpiece, "The Red Studio," a painting that has been an iconic part of MoMA's collection since 1949. The exhibition reunites the artworks featured in the original studio, accompanied by archival materials, related paintings, and drawings.
