Niki de Saint Phalle was a key figure in the new generation of young artists who, at the beginning of the 1960s, were redefining the boundaries of what an artwork could be.

This exhibition explores the most important thematic periods in Niki de Saint Phalle’s body of work through a “semi-chronological” presentation. It begins with Saint Phalle’s early oil paintings and assemblage works from the end of the 1950s and then invites us to experience her famous “shooting paintings.” Thereafter, her “white period” is presented, and the many different sculptures of women in all manner of color and form, the so-called Nanas. The exhibition also examines Saint Phalle’s interest in film and theater, and devotes space to her work in public settings that culminated in the great “The Tarot Garden” in Tuscany, which she continued to work on up until her death.

The exhibition is realized in collaboration with the Niki de Saint Phalle Charitable Foundation.
