More information

Jean-Michel Alberola, was born in 1953 in Saïda, Algeria, and grew up at the same time as the Algerian War. This traumatic period, which led to his exile to Paris, where he currently works and resides, compelled the young Alberola to develop a compulsive focus on world news, politics, music, and film. This focus has left a lasting mark on his work.
Throughout his thirty-year career, he has produced a diverse collection of figurative, abstract, and conceptual works. Consistently, Alberola explores the fragility of beauty, the ambiguity of perception, the role of the artist, and the purpose of art in his art.
Blending humor and lyricism, he combines artistic reflections with political and social issues. Alberola is associated with the Figuration Libre movement that emerged in the 1980s, advocating for creative expressions without reference to culture, borders, or genre. According to his perspective, the artist's role is to resist the erosion of meaning and communicate this effort to us. Alberola has exhibited extensively in leading museums and has undertaken commissions for various institutions, including the Musee d'art Moderne and Le Palais de Tokyo in Paris. He teaches at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and is a prominent figure in the French art scene.
