A look back at 60 years of artistic creation by a multi-faceted, scientifically-minded artist, ranging from his first performances, paintings, drawings and diagrams to his last photographs, videos, sculptures and films. 

Indeterminate lines, steel, tar, coal, monochromes, collapsed arcs, mathematical painting… 

This exhibition adopts a unique, global approach to his body of work, knowledge of which is often too fragmented.
It offers a better understanding of the 170 works exhibited, in all of their complexity, poetry and extent, as well as their coherency, since they are presented in their sociological, artistic and historical context.*

This exhibition is recognized as being of National Interest by the Ministère de la Culture/Direction générale des patrimoines/Service des musées de France.

Admission to the Museum of Contemporay Art and its exhibition is included in the Lyon City Card.
