Niki de Saint Phalle at the Slaughterhouses

Les Abattoirs, Musée – Frac Occitanie Toulouse presents a new exhibition dedicated to the Franco-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle (1930 – 2002) until March 5, 2023. Through “Niki de Saint Phalle. The 1980s and 1990s: Art in Freedom”, the public is invited to discover nearly 200 works (small and monumental, jewellery, perfume, videos, books, clothes, etc.) by the artist. This large and surprising exhibition also plunges the visitor into the development of the Tarot Garden at Capalbio in Tuscany, where he can appreciate the unbridled creativity of the artist. The vast rooms of the Musée des Abattoirs lend themselves perfectly to this journey which delivers, as Niki de Saint Phalle wished, “the joyful life of objects”, colors, shapes, in complete freedom…
