Nicolas Party: Boys and Pastel
Exhibition: 2 May - 21 June 2015

Inverleith House is delighted to present Nicolas Party, Boys and Pastel, the first major solo exhibition in a UK public gallery by the Swiss artist (b.1980, Lausanne. Lives and works in Brussels, Belgium).

For Boys and Pastel, Nicolas Party has transformed the formal Georgian interior of Inverleith House into a contemporary ‘gesamtkunstwerk’ with the most expansive installation of his decorative wall paintings and charcoal drawings to date. Spanning every available inch of the seven gallery spaces, these patterned murals act as a framing device and wondrous stage set for a new series of pastel compositions. Running concurrently in the lower ground floor gallery is a programme of Party's rarely seen short films which provide further insight into the artist's unique aesthetic language.

 Exhibition Supported by The Modern Institute/Toby Webster, Ltd., ProHelvetia, the Swiss Cultural Fund and the Stanley Thomas Johnson Foundation.
