Modem Men's Firenze Milano Paris Fall-Winter 2014-2015
Cover by Gérard Garouste
For this edition, which is dedicated to the Men’s Collection A W 14/15, Modem is giving “carte blanche” to Gérard Garouste, painter, illustrator, decorator
and sculptor, born in Paris in 1946. Being known as one of the most important French artists, his figurative, mythological and allegorical paintings are often
recognized as “post-modern”.
A passionate reader of the Bible, tales and legends, Gérard Garouste questions the notion of the subject in paintings by exploring the mysteries of the origin and transmission.
In 1991, he founded “La Source”, an association for educational and social action, which helps underprivileged children and young people who are
even excluded from society to thrive by participating in workshops led by professional artists.
He exhibited at the Venice Biannale (1984), in New York (Leo Castelli Gallery, 1985), Los Angeles (Santa Monica Museum of Art, 1990) and Tokyo (National Museum of Art, 1990).
His work is represented amongst others in public collections of the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris, the Ludwig Museum in Vienna or the Museum of contemporary Art in Montreal…
The Daniel Templon Gallery in Paris will hold the exhibition “Contes ineffables”, a series of recent works of the artist, from 11th January to 26th February 2014. The images on this edition’s cover and dividing sheets are representing part of his works from this exhibition, which Gérard Garouste let us discover
exclusively in preview.
