法國五月藝術節將在主要合作伙伴香港賽馬會慈善信託基金的支持下,隆重呈獻世界級展覽《二十世紀藝術的傳奇:妮基‧聖法爾》,為整個藝術節揭開序幕。第27屆法國五月將帶領香港觀眾展開一趟穿梭時間、空間,認識東方至西方的藝術文化「旅程」。這次藝術節的重點展覽帶來約100件妮基‧聖法爾的作品,在沙田大會堂廣場及展覽廳展出,部分作品將在公共空間形成一道引人注目的長廊,連接至室內的展覽,令觀眾參與一次藝術「旅程」,與今年藝術節的主題呼應。在5月5日至6月2日展覽期間,妮基‧聖法爾的雕塑和畫作,將令公眾沉醉其中。

Niki de Saint Phalle (1930 –2002) was a sculptor, painter, and filmmaker. The French-born,American-raised artist is one of the most significant female and feminist artists of the 20th century.

She had no formal training in art, but associated freely with many other contemporary artists, such as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers, composer John Cage, and architect Mario Botta, and many more. She also worked with Swiss artist Jean Tinguely, her second husband. She continued to create prolifically until the end of her life.

妮基・聖法爾(1930–2002),雕塑家、畫家及電影製作人,是二十世紀最著名的女性及女權主義的法裔美籍藝術家。妮基沒有受過正式藝術訓練,但曾與許多當代藝術家緊密合作,如賈斯培·瓊斯、羅伯特.勞森伯格、拉里.里弗斯、作曲家約翰.凱奇、建築師馬里奧.博塔等。她還與瑞士藝術家尚.丁格利(第二任丈夫)一起合作,終其一生創作。

Through Bloum Cardenas, her granddaughter, with the support of the Niki Charitable Foundation and the Galerie Mitterrand, an exhibition in artistic conversation with Chinese artist Shen Yuan was presented at the Power Station of Art Museum in Shanghai (August 18–October 14, 2018). Following this inaugural exhibition in China, the first major retrospective of her work was on show in Beijing at the Today Art Museum (November 23,2008 – March10,2019).

The acclaimed exhibition will travel to Hong Kong to Sha Tin Town Hall for Le French May 2019, which will be the first solo exhibition of Niki de Saint Phalle in the city.

透過其孫女布魯姆.卡爾德納斯協助,並獲妮基慈善基金會和密特朗畫廊鼎力支持,得以在上海當代藝術博物館(2018年8月18日至10月14日),展出妮基和中國藝術家沈遠的作品對話。除此之外,北京今日美術館更為妮基在北京舉辦大型個人回顧展(2018年11月23日至2019年3月10日)。

北京展畢後,妮基・聖法爾的作品將到臨香港沙田大會堂,在本年度的法國五月展出。這是第一次在香港舉辦妮基・聖法爾的個人展覽。
