On the occasion of ‘François Morellet. Neons’, please join us for a walkthrough of the exhibition with Laetitia Catoir, Senior Director Hauser & Wirth.

‘François Morellet. Neons’ is an exhibition dedicated to one of the foremost French figures of the 20th Century and his ground-breaking achievements with light and neon. As one of the first artists to use neon in the 1960s, Morellet developed a radical approach to geometric abstraction, juxtaposing precision and formality with a playfulness and joyful lightness that is revealed in the titles of his works, which often employ tongue-in-cheek puns, parody, and wordplay.
