In the aftermath of the Algerian War and the May 1968 student riots, two oppositional schools of painters formed in France: Supports/Surfaces and B.M.P.T. (so called for the initials of its founders: Daniel Buren, Olivier Mosset, Michel Parmentier, and Niele Toroni). In light of the political and social upheaval, these two artists groups experimented and expanded the limits of traditional painting. View a selection of these “paintings” by Buren, Viallat, Cadere, and more, on view now in “Unlimited: Painting in France in the 1960s & 1970s.”
