'Le récit de condensation' at MUba Tourcoing, is an exhibition of works by Georg Baselitz that have been carefully selected to illustrate the dialectical encounter between the artist and late French painter Eugène Leroy - also the subject of Baselitz' twenty-five paintings featured amoung the works in this exhibition.
Baselitz and Leroy share a common theme in their work that is integral to both their practice; each artist attempts to reveal the hidden secrets of figurative and non-figurative painting and in turn is able to visually emphasise the medium's strengths and weaknesses.
The exhibition is curated by Rainer Michael Mason and a catalogue, including texts written by the curators Evelyne-Dorothée Allemand and Yannick Courbès, will accomany the exibition.
