Christian Boltanski - Lifetime

February 9–May 6, 2019

In this retrospective, we look back at the work of Christian Boltanski, one of France's preeminent artists, who has been dealing with themes such as history, memory, death, and absence since the late '60s. While focusing on the artist's activities over the last half century, the entire exhibition will also function as an installation that can be viewed as a single work of art.

  • Organized by The National Museum of Art, Osaka, The Asahi Shimbun
  • Supported by Ambassade de France / Institut français du Japon
  • Sponsored by Daikin Foundation for Contemporary Arts
