The Musée Barbier-Mueller, Arik Levy & Zoé Ouvrier
09 November 2022 03 September 2023
As the Musée Barbier-Mueller celebrates its 45th anniversary, it welcomes, in an original dialogue with pieces from its collection, the works of two contemporary artists: the sculptor, engraver and painter Zoé Ouvrier and the sculptor and visual artist Arik Levy.
The two artists have been given carte blanche; each in their own way asserts a strong and deeply personal link with non-Western arts, with the work and sensibility of artists and craftsmen, an intimacy with the works at the border between the visible and the invisible.
