Impasse Ronsin

The Impasse Ronsin, a dead-end street tucked behind Montparnasse, was a crucible of postwar culture, a tight band of international artists who during the 1950s shared this ramshakle hamlet of ancient studios: Constantin Brancusi, Isamu Noguchi, William N. Copley, Max Ernst, Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne, James Metcalf, Larry Rivers, Niki de Saint Phalle, Daniel Spoerri, Jean Tinguely, and numerous other seminal post-war artists. Taking as its focus the historic Parisian alley, the exhibition will include the work of these artists in an installation designed to embody the historic spirit of l’impasse Ronsin.

Opening reception at the gallery on October 27, 6-8 pm.
