Jean Dubuffet, Tour aux récits at Smithson PlazaSeptember 23, 2020 The installation of Tour aux récits at Smithson Plaza, produced in collaboration with Pace and Encounter Contemporary together with Waddington Custot, comes at a time of renewed focus on the radical French artist, who is often cited as one of the most powerful and provocative voices in the post-war avant-garde.
Work on PaperChu Teh-Chun, Hans Hartung, Pierre Soulages, Fabienne Verdier and Zao Wou-Ki 25 February–18 March 2021 Waddington Custot presents ‘Work on Paper’. This online exhibition features paintings by five major figures associated with French art: Chu Teh-Chun, Hans Hartung, Pierre Soulages, Fabienne Verdier and Zao Wou-Ki. All engage with ideas of lyrical abstraction and Tachisme, movements that thrived in Paris in the mid-20th century. Their balanced and elegant compositions are charged with a mastery of gesture and quick execution. These artists were deeply inspired by nature, and the paintings are each a personal expression of the living world.
