With his junk objects, machine sculptures, but also his happenings and performances, the Swiss artist Jean Tinguely is regarded as one the most versatile and independent protagonists of the international art scene since the 1950s. Early on he artistically explored the phenomenon of movement. In collaboration with the Tinguely Museum, Basel, and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, this show will be the first major exhibition of the work of Tinguely in approximately15 years. The show, which comprises more than 100 works, will span a wide range of works, starting with his first tenderly poetic wire sculptures and kinetic assemblages through to his world-famous Méta-matics.
