MUSEE D'ART DE PULLY: JAQUES BERGER
Tuesday 12 February 2019

museepullyjaquesberger

With a new look, the Pully art Museum looks at the work of Jaques Berger (1902-1977). An elegant, subtle character with a singular style, almost unclassifiable, the painter and lithographer Vaudois is known for both the international avant-garde scene as much as local.

After beginnings influenced by the abstract and purist movements in 1920s, Berger turned to a less abstract model with more order, before returning to abstraction as early as the end of the 1950s. In search of new expressive means, the artist continued for almost 70 years in the lithographic adventure, which solidifies his reputation.

The exhibition is an opportunity to discover the path of a demanding painter who has been able to forge a path avoiding academicism. Through paintings, drawings, and lithographs, the spectator discovers that the artist's profession is above all to do with color, the relationship between masses, volumes and contrasts. The usual categories fade, the painting is purified, the eye opens to a set of shapes and lines, to a space of meditation.

In collaboration with the Association of Friends of Jaques Berger.

Guest curator: Aglaja Kempf, art historian

Exhibition-File

2019 will mark the anniversary of the 70 years of the Musée d'art, which opened its doors to the public in 1949. On this occasion, in parallel with the retrospective devoted to Jaques Berger, the Musée d'art de Pully will present an exhibition-dossier devoted to both the acquisitions made by the museum over the last ten years and to proposals of guest artists for the occasion.
