Fabienne Verdier retrospective extended due to popular demand

Musée Granet show extended to 5 January 2020

Due to exceptional demand, the Musée Granet in Aix-en-Provence have made the decision to extend by three months the major retrospective of the work of Fabienne Verdier: the exhibition will now run until 5 January 2020. The exhibition explores various aspects of Verdier's expansive practice spanning four decades to present day, and culminates with a new body of large-scale paintings focussed on the natural landscape around the museum.  


Verdier’s retrospective at Musée Granet presents six major themes within the artist’s work, revealing the evolution, depth and variety of her practice. Verdier’s continued engagement with the natural world emerges as a consistent focus, and this ongoing engagement encompasses wide-ranging natural phenomena, from geology to gravity, energy and matter.


For this new and extended period of the exhibition, Verdier has contributed twenty additional works which will be on exhibition for the very first time, relating to her two years of work on Sainte-Victoire, within the landscape immortalised by Cézanne. These will join the fifty monumental paintings which form the core of the retrospective.
