Nicolas Party: Arches
November 30, 2018 - February 24, 2019

Opening in November 2018, M WOODS presents a solo exhibition by Swiss artist Nicolas Party. Working across painting, pastel, sculpture, video and installation, Party is renowned for a deep sense of site specificity and temporality in his projects, which often feature hand-painted murals that exist on gallery walls only for the duration of an exhibition. Within these painted environments sit two and three dimensional works which, through a style and colour system unique to the artist, offer a contemporary take on traditional subjects such as still life, portraiture, landscape and the sculptural bust. 


Party’s exhibition at M WOODS will be his first at a non-profit institution in Asia and his largest to date, bringing together recent works with a suite of new sculptures and wallpaintings created on site at the museum. 


Nicolas Party (b. 1980, Lausanne) lives and works in Brussels and New York City. He has exhibited widely, his most recent institutional solo exhibitions at the Magritte Museum, Brussels; Modern Art Oxford, Oxford; Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC; The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles and Palazzo Antinori, Florence.
