Don't miss the exhibition from June 29 to September 29, 2019 !
►Coinciding with the inauguration of the Hôtel des collections on June 29, the MOCO unveils the first public presentation of masterpieces from the Ishikawa Collection. This outstanding and relatively recent private collection begun in 2011 by Yasuharu Ishikawa, a Japanese entrepreneur, is characterized by exceptional coherence and a Japanese feel that derives primarily from its emphasis on minimal, understated, subtle forms.
The sculptures, paintings, photographs, videos, and installations selected by the curator have their common roots in the conceptual heritage.
It brings together works from the 1960s to the present day, centering on pieces produced after the 1990s. The selection on display includes historical figures such as Marcel Broodthaers, Lawrence Weiner, and Gerhard Richter, established artists such as Pierre Huyghe, Liam Gillick, Steve McQueen, and Danh Vo, and up-and-coming talents, such as Rachel Rose, Ryan Gander or Shitamichi Motoyuki. It is a unique opportunity to see mythical works like the very first “light piece” by Félix González Torres, Untitled (5 March) #2, from 1991, a group of videos and sculptures by Fischli & Weiss, and immersive installations by Anri Sala and Haroon Mirza.
