Pierre Bismuth - Exhibition catalogue
The exhibition, Pierre Bismuth Everyone is an artist but only the artist, knows it mixes emblematic works of the French artist with others specially designed for the occasion and offers a new approach to his work, no doubt. one of the most unique artistic endeavors on the contemporary scene.
Little known to the general public, Pierre Bismuth was however rewarded in 2005 for the synopsis of the film "Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind" for which he won the Oscar for best screenplay with Michel Gondry and Charlie Kaufmann.
The title of the exhibition refers to a recurring problematic in the work of Pierre Bismuth, precisely the condition of the artist in a context where culture has completely integrated the leisure industry and where industrial production perfectly assimilated the aesthetic issues. What is the place of creativity in a context where art has emancipated itself from any specific know-how? Can the artist be anything other than an eccentric figure offering a unique vision of the world?
The catalog, designed like an artist's book in close collaboration with Pierre Bismuth, will present a much wider selection of his works than the exhibition, looking back on his production since 1988, commented on by 4 specialists from the world of contemporary art and images.
Exhibition "Pierre Bismuth Everyone is an artist but only the artist knows it" from 20 October 2021 to 28 February 2022 at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
