MASI LACExhibitions

MASI will be presenting a temporary exhibition of the Swiss artist Nicolas Party which will be held from May 31st to November 29th 2020. The exhibition is the first large, partially retrospective exhibition of Party’s oeuvre to be organised by a museum, featuring works produced from 2013 to the present day. For this occasion the artist has designed a site specific architecture in which he will present works pertaining to the five main recurring motifs he has explored throughout his career: still life, portraits, landscape, rocks and caves. The display will feature pastels on canvas, painted sculptures and  four large site specific murals conceived expressly for this occasion. Party's works are characterized by a non-naturalistic choice of bold, contrasting colours and by a simplification of the form which aim at capturing the essence of the subject and seem to be suspended between abstraction and representation. The extremely colourful exhibition design conceived by the artist will contribute to the creation of a mysterious and stimulating universe which will certainly trigger the perceptive and emotional response of the visitors in new and unexpected ways.
