Exhibitions

Ten years after his exhibition entitled the ship of fools at the Musée de Grenoble in 2009, the Fernet-Branca Foundation invites this summer the artist Gregory Forstner, who has just returned to France after living and working ten years in Brooklyn, New York. The exhibition Get in, Get out. No Fucking around will be the opportunity to present a selection of different series produced between Europe and the United States, as well as an overview of the artist's more recent production. Among some fifty works, paintings, prints and drawings, the Fernet-Branca Foundation presents unpublished pieces from private and public collections, never shown together before and highlighting the conceptual and aesthetic concerns of Gregory Forstner’s work.
Get in, get out. No Fucking around. Le titre de l’exposition fait référence à un dialogue entre l’auteur compositeur Tom Waits et son épouse Kathleen Brennan alors qu'ils travaillaient sur l’album Bad as Me : « Les gens n’ont pas beaucoup de temps, lui dit-elle. Entrez, sortez. Pas de foutaises. » Cela fait écho à Gregory Forstner, et non sans humour souligne le fait que la peinture est une question d'espace mais encore plus de temps.
