Don't miss the exhibition "Dominique Gauthier, over the collections" from June 02 to August 28, 2022!
Born in 1953 in Paris, Dominique Gauthier lives and works in Lavérune, near Montpellier.
Trained at the School of Decorative Arts in Limoges as well as at the School of Fine Arts in Marseille-Luminy, with Claude Viallat, he was defended by the gallery owner Jean Fournier from the start, notably presenting operas in monumental format. composed of an assembly of fabrics and mixed materials.
While a work from this series joined the collections of the Musée Fabre in 1982, followed by a second in the early 2000s, the artist honored the museum in 2020 with an exceptional donation of nearly ten canvases and around thirty graphic works, showing the diversity of his pictorial practice.
This protean work, marked by the scale of the gesture, the colors and the formats, will be honored through this exhibition, within the atrium Richier and the vaulted rooms (rooms 48, 49, 50, 51 and 52) and the publication of a catalog which will reveal the richness of the fund from the collections of the Fabre museum.
Admission included in the admission ticket to the permanent collections.
