Nicolas Party, Dijon
Le Consortium, Dijon
7 July 2021 - 9 January 2022

His exhibition at the Consortium Museum is titled Boilly, after the prolific French artist Louis-Léopold Boilly (1761-1845), a painter, engraver and miniaturist known for his portraits, genre scenes, fêtes galantes and caricatures. For this exhibition, Party has created a series of murals inspired by Boilly’s works and most specifically his caricatures, such as Réunion de 35 têtes d’expression (1825) or Objets Divers (1785).  Their monumentality serves as a setting for Party’s pastels on canvas and his large-scale polychromic sculptures.
