Francois Morellet.

JEU DE PAUME

The natural child of Max Bill and Alphonse Allais, born by chance in 1926, Francois Morellet combines the joys of geometry and wordplay in his work. This ninety-five piece full-career survey, his first in Paris since the 1986 retrospective at the Centre Georges Pompidou, should prove once and for all that he is one of the four or five most important French artists of the postwar period (to resort to the kind of appraisal that never fails to cause dissension). Daniel Abadie, the museum's director, places particular emphasis on the neon pieces, where the genius of the absurd vies with a programmatic rigor. A work Morellet conceived for the occasion will enliven the Jeu de Paume's facade. Nov. 14, 2000-Jan. 7, 2001.
