Co-organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, the exhibition will explore the artistic outputs of American Joan Mitchell and Canadian Jean-Paul Riopelle. This couple shared their lives for nearly 25 years, living in Paris and Vétheuil in the Seine valley. The exhibition will explore their romantic relationship and how each painter developed a workshop practice and a distinctive body of work while participating in a broader artistic dialogue focusing on abstraction.
This exhibition will also be on display at the Art Gallery of Ontario (February – May 2018).
