Matière Grise – Galerie Max Hetzler

With a successful “vernissage” Galerie Max Hetzler in Le Marais in Paris opened its exhibition Matière Grise.

Matière Grise displays works of Glenn Brown, André Butzer, Jérémy Demester, Günther Förg, Loris Gréaud, Raymond Hains, Liz Larner, Navid Nuur, Albert Oehlen, Charline von Heyl and Edmund de Waal.


This exhibition questions meaning and imaginary around the colour Grey. Considered as bleak or basic, Grey is also seen as presence and absence. Matière Grise explains the meaning of Grey, its symbol and its social representation throughout centuries, from Contemporary to Modern Art.


“The works on display reveal all the subtleties of grey. Never monotonous, it is a myriad of colours. Far from being neutral, it conveys meanings and messages. For this exhibition, grey sings all the tints it is made of and we are presented with a show filled with colours.” Galerie Max Hetzler
