Roman Opałka: A Retrospective

Building

04 May 201920 Jul 2019

Building gallery is exhibiting a selection of paintings from the “Détails” series, along with 7 Cartes de Voyages and 35 self-portraits, presented together with the recorded sound of his voice, to convey an overarching vision of the project OPALKA 1965/1-∞.

The exhibition is also enriched by a nucleus of works dating to before 1965: from an early academic drawing, “Les Nuages”, of 1951, to the “Études sur le Mouvement” (1959-60), “Chronome” (1963) and “Alphabet grec” (1965) in which he experimented with the fragmentation of space and time by using rhythms and movements of marks and dots on the canvas – up to the Fonemats series of 1964, on display for the very first time. There is also a section devoted to his graphic work, with his etchings “Descriptions du Monde”, produced between 1968 and 1970.
