"Anish Kapoor chez Le Corbusier"
For seven years now, the Dominicans, who live in the Couvent de La Tourette, which Le Corbusier built for them in the 1950s in the Lyon area, have been holding exhibitions of contemporary art. They wish the monastery to strongly embrace today’s world and, in particular, contemporary creative activity. This year’s guest artist is Anish Kapoor. Once again, this coming-together will yield a fertile, arresting dialogue between artistic heritage and a contemporary creator.
Anish Kapoor conceives of Art on the grand scale. His mainly sculptural work blends Western culture with his eastern roots. His sculptures are generally simple: curves, vivid colours, often monochrome. His creations are regularly shown in leading museums and international institutions.
