ARTER produces the exhibition Fugues in Color at FONDATION LOUIS VUITTON.

The exhibition Fugues in Color brings together five painters from the international art scene, all from different backgrounds and generations: Sam Gilliam, Katharina Grosse, Steven Parrino, Megan Rooney, Niele Toroni.

Through their own abstracted vocabularies, they push the traditional limits of the pictorial medium. Painting leaves the restricted field of the stretched canvas, discovering a new freedom in the color/support relationship, extending into space, across floor, wall, and ceiling. As variations on the expansion of color, the works brought together here engage in close dialogue with the architecture of Frank Gehry.

In addition to the group of works by Sam Gilliam, Steven Parrino, and Niele Toroni, which include major loans, both private and from public institutions, Katharina Grosse and Megan Rooney have each created new ephemeral pieces for the exhibition.
