Henie Onstad Art Centre November 24
The art committee invites you to join us on a guided tour at the Henie Onstad Art Centre for a retrospective of Niki de Saint Phalle.
Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) made a name for herself on the international art scene during the late 1950s and early 1960s, developing a new role for the artist in close dialogue with the media of television especially. Her paintings and sculptures shattered boundaries for what a woman could express and do in public, for herself and for other women.
The exhibition, which comprises over 100 works, begins with Saint Phalle’s early oil paintings, includes her famous ‘shooting paintings’, her ‘white period’ as well as some of her many different sculptures of women, and her work in public settings that culminated in her famous Tarot Garden in Tuscany that she continued to work on up to her death.
