Beaux Arts Special Edition / Gérard Garouste - Centre Pompidou
This retrospective presents his paintings, made up of associations of ideas, in turn disturbing and joyful, populated with sometimes fantastic animals and various characters. It looks back at the sources of his art, which combine the Bible, culture and the great texts from Cervantes to Rabelais.
Gérard Garouste's art and life are intimately linked and are filled with ghosts and hauntings.
Beaux Arts Éditions revisits this "Intranquille" and the intimate torments that shaped his career: his father's violence and anti-Semitism, dyslexia, failure, madness, depression, misunderstanding, and takes us into the workings of creation.
Exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, Paris from 7 September 2022 to 2 January 2023
