ARMAND SCHOLTÈS, GARDENER OF SHAPES: 25 MAY – 30 SEPTEMBER. PRICE: €4
At the International Museum of Perfumery (MIP) in Grasse and at the Gardens of the International Museum of Perfumery
(JMIP) in Mouans-Sartoux.
For this summer, 2018, the International Museum of Perfumery and its Gardens will therefore launch a new invitation to
understand otherness. An invitation to allow our critical mind and imagination to restore to prominence the artistic visions
which continue to contribute to our worldview, with this contemporary artist, Armand Scholtès, a major French artist,
whose work extends over more than five decades.
Born in 1935 in Lorraine, Armand Scholtès has lived and worked in Nice since 1986. If Armand Scholtès is truly an artist of the 21st century,
his singular, accessible, concentrated and minimal modernity combines primitive art, art naïf and arte povera.
As part of the 10th anniversary of the re-opening of the International Museum of Perfumery, the museum will therefore
be presenting a selection of graphical works on the theme of Landscape. Whilst the Gardens of the MIP will offer an original
installation “A Garden of Shapes” combining coloured planes of plants.
