Gustav Metzger. Decades: 1959-2009 – initiated and organized by the Serpentine Gallery, London, and then presented at the Musée départemental d’art contemporain of Rochechouart – is the result of a significant investigation on the artist’s six decades of activity and presents a large selection of works, from those belonging to the Cardboards series of 1959 to the auto-destructive and auto-creative works of the Sixties, from the Liquid Crystal Environment, conceived in 1965, to the Historic Photographs realized in the Nineties and inspired by the main historical events and catastrophes of the 20th Century.
