Matisse Godon, New York

The Matisse museum in north­ern France reg­u­larly invites con­tem­po­rary artists to enter into a dia­logue with its per­ma­nent col­lec­tions. Its lat­est show, sub­ti­tled Archi­tec­ture du rêve, gave local artist Alain Godon carte blanche on the theme of travel. It was inspired by Matisse’s jour­ney to Tahiti in 1930, evoked in the cut-​out works of the artist’s lat­ter years. London-​based Godon, once a graf­fiti artist, presents appar­ently sim­plis­tic paint­ings, char­ac­terised by vivid colours and out­lines defined by thin black strokes. Among the 150 works on dis­play are 49 draw­ings, 10 sculp­tures and five orig­i­nal instal­la­tions. Matisse, one of the 20th century’s most rev­o­lu­tion­ary artists, was born in Le Cateau– Cam­bré­sis. He founded the museum in 1952 by donat­ing 82 works.
