PARIS – The Fondation Cartier presents a major exhibition of the work of French sculptor César on the tenth anniversary of his death. Jean Nouvel —the Fondation Cartier’s architect and a close friend of the artist—has been invited to select the works as well as design their presentation, thus offering a fresh perspective on the work of an artist who passionately explored the formal and expressive possibilities of industrial materials. Through this exhibition, the Fondation Cartier will celebrate an artist who played a major role in its history, from its inception in 1984 until his death in 1998.
