Niki & Jean, l'Art et l'Amour
29 August 2006 – 4 March 2007
A collaboration between the Sprengel Museum Hannover and the Museum Tinguely, Basel, with the support of the Niki Charitable Art Foundation, San Diego
The exhibition is a celebration of Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) and Jean Tinguely (1925-1991) and their intense collaboration reflected in their common and individual works. It is an exhibition about the “Bonnie and Clyde of the arts”, as they were introduced in 1962 by a speaker on an American TV channel, about one of the most flamboyant and famous couples in modern art.
The exhibition is in three parts: The Artists, The Collaboration, The Love.
