Into the World of Nicolas Party

A major artist of our time, Nicolas Party is known for his meticulously composed paintings, his painted sculptures and his installations drenched in saturated colours. Through over 100 works and a series of large-scale murals realized in situ, he unveils a dreamlike exhibition themed on nature, at the MMFA.

On view until October 16, 2022, L’heure mauve (Mauve Twilight) is not an exhibition in the usual sense of the word, but a work of art in and of itself – an extraordinary visual poem, where fantastical beings inhabit a lyrical and idealized nature. We invite you to take a glimpse into the world of Nicolas Party by watching an interview filmed during the mounting of the exhibition. Among other things, the artist shares about his work, his sources of inspiration, his passion for pastel and creating murals, and his original approach to sculpture.
