Art Absolute | 黑出晦冥Outrenoir, 超越黑色的世纪巨匠皮耶·苏拉吉
July 16, 2020
On view from 7 July through 10 September, 2020, the exhibition Pierre Soulages: Outrenoir will continue the global celebration of the artist's 100th birthday, following solo survey exhibitions in New York at Lévy Gorvy and in Paris at Musée du Louvre—only the third time in the museum’s history that the Salon Carré has been devoted entirely to the presentation of work by a single living artist, an honor shared only by Pablo Picasso and Marc Chagall. Pierre Soulages: Outrenoir will be the first exhibition in Hong Kong organized with France’s foremost living artist.
A contemporary of the American Abstract Expressionists and of artists working in Paris like his colleague and lifetime friend Zao Wou-Ki, Soulages has remained a key figure in the international developments of contemporary art for seven decades. Throughout his career, Soulages has explored the poetic possibilities of his radical approach to abstraction, which he continues to pursue as an active painter. His striking Outrenoir paintings—a term invented by Soulages which translates as “beyond black”—is an ongoing body of work that examines the physical and psychological qualities of visual experience through the use of black paint.
