About the publication

In 1987, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain devoted an exhibition to Emmanuel Pereire presenting paintings executed between 1983 and 1987. In the space of thirty years, this artist born in 1937 composed a complex corpus that touches upon the essentials of existence and cannot be boxed in. Painter, photographer, “angelologist,” and exterminating angel of frozen art, Emmanuel Pereire is an implacable, unclassifiable, unconventional creator.
Mixing interviews, critical texts, and numerous reproductions of his works, the exhibition catalog presents the singular world of this very special artist.
