Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac opens a comprehensive solo exhibition of new sculptures by Tony Cragg (b 1949) in the vast halls of the gallery space in Paris Pantin. Comprised of 25 new sculptures made from steel, bronze, wood, fibreglass and stone, the exhibition coincides with a solo presentation at the Eremitage St. Petersburg and a retrospective at the Von der-Heydt-Museum in Wuppertal. Cragg’s sculptural oeuvre was originally motivated by his encounter with English Land Art and Performance, and is still distinguished by an immense wealth of surprising formal inventions and combinations.

21 February – 30 June.
