He is known for his works with simple geometric shapes. Joel Shapiro has installed two monumental bronze sculptures in the Museum's central hall.
The paintings of Peter Halley, an artist born in 1953, are inspired by urban spaces. His luminous canvases, which are criss-crossed by colourful conduits and pipes, brim with movement and energy. The exhibition features recent works by the artist.

The Museum's graphic arts department is hosting a Micha Laury exhibition mainly consisting of drawings, but also some installations. Born in Israel in 1946, this artist is developing a highly personal and sensitive body of work, largely inspired by biographical themes and which raises questions about our relationship to the world, to society and to space.
