Raphaël Denis

In company of Curator Didier Schulmann Centre Pompidou

In the Focus room, Raphaël Denis unveils his installation “Coffre n°7”, acquired by the Centre Pompidou in 2019. This work, in addition to the sources of history and art which drive his work, question the very notion of ‘collection’ and look back at the hideous years of French collaboration during the 2nd World War. As part of the new exhibits in the file-rooms, it is also a tribute to the art dealer Paul Rosenberg (1881-1959) and his fundamental role in the landscape of Parisian galleries in the first half of the 20th century.
