Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, b.1941

Bernar Venet

Bernar Venet first gained recognition in the 1960s for the development of his Tar paintings, Cardboard Reliefs, and his iconic Tas de charbon (Pile of Coal), the first sculpture without a specific shape.

Over the following decades his work has been exhibited extensively throughout Europe, the United States, South America and Asia both in solo museum shows, as well as in major art events such as the Kassel Documenta in 1977, and the Biennales of Paris, Venice and São Paulo. To date he is the most internationally exhibited...

Biography

Bernar Venet first gained recognition in the 1960s for the development of his Tar paintings, Cardboard Reliefs, and his iconic Tas de charbon (Pile of Coal), the first sculpture without a specific shape. The year 1979 marked a significant turning point in Venet’s career: having recently begun a series of wood reliefs–Arcs, Angles, and Straight Lines–he created the first of his Indeterminate Lines and was awarded a grant by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Over the following decades his work has been exhibited extensively throughout Europe, the United States, South America and Asia both in solo museum shows, as well as in major art events such as the Kassel Documenta in 1977, and the Biennales of Paris, Venice and São Paulo. To date he is the most internationally exhibited French artist with 30 public sculpture exhibitions and monumental works permanently installed in cities including Auckland, Austin, Shenzhen, Berlin, Cologne, Denver, Geneva, Neu-Ulm, Nice, Paris, San Francisco, Seoul, Tokyo, and Toulouse. Venet has been the recipient of many awards including the Grand Prix des Arts de la Ville de Paris and Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur, France’s highest decoration. In February 2016, the International Sculpture Center will award Venet the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award for his exemplary contributions to the field of sculpture.
