The Les Abattoirs museum in Toulouse reviews the work of Antoni Tàpies in a major exhibition in France

Les Abattoirs, the museum of modern and contemporary art in Toulouse, is presenting a selection of 60 pieces by Antoni Tàpies as a result of an agreement with the Fundació Tàpies in Barcelona, which has made a temporary collection exchange possible. Parla, parla, the most important exhibition dedicated to the Catalan painter by a French museum since Tàpies’s death in 2012, focuses on the entire career of one of the major European artists of the second half of the 20th century. It can be seen from 11th February to 22nd May. 


Through the exchanging of collections, the two museums allow their visitors to identify the appearance and development of Tàpies’s work in the context of the radical redefinition of art that took place in the 1950s. From this perspective the aim is to explain the experimental nature of his work, which spans over half a century.

The exhibition of Antoni Tàpies’s work in Toulouse, entitled Parla, parla (Speak, Speak), is not in chronological order. It is divided into seven sections, each inspired by a work or group of works: Sèrie: Història natural (Series: Natural History), made in 1951, will be followed by Complementari (Complementary), Combinacions (Combinations), Anvers (Antwerp), Presentació (Presentation) and Quotidià (Quotidian), as well as Parla, parla, one of the most important works in the show. The people of Toulouse will have the opportunity to appreciate the power of experimentation in the Catalan artist’s work for over 50 years and his unwavering commitment to contemporary thinking, which have both placed him in a pre-eminent position among modern artists.

The collaboration agreement is completed by the cession by Les Abattoirs in Toulouse of about 60 works from the collections of Anthony Denney and Daniel Cordier, representatives of the Informalist art of the 1950s, to the Fundació Tàpies. They are part of the exhibition Documents d’acció (Documents of Action), which the Fundació Tàpies is putting on from 28th January to 22nd May.

Thanks to collaboration with the Fundació Tàpies and the support of the French Institute and the Institut Ramon Llull
