Marking the first collaboration of its kind between the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Montreal, this major exhibition represents a critical retrospective of the works by internationally renowned artist David Altmejd.
The Museum exhibition brings together some thirty works made over the last 15 years. Altmejd has created, among other things, a new on-site intervention. On of the major parts of the presentation, The Flux and the Puddle, 20140, offers a dazzling compendium of the main motifs and preoccupation that inhabit the artists powerful imagination.
Born in Montréal in 1974, David Altmejd lives and works in New York. After studying visual arts at the Université du Québec à Montréal, where he majored in drawing and painting, he graduated as a sculptor in 1998. Fascinated by biology and science-fiction film, he moved to New York, where he earned an MFA at Columbia University in 2001. Altmejd represented Canada in 2007 at the 52nd Venice Biennale with the installation The Index, and took part in the Istanbul and Whitney Biennials in 2003 and 2003, respectively.
