Jean-Michel Othoniel

Visual Artist
(Updated on 11/13/2012)

A Paris-based artist, Jean-Michel Othoniel was born in 1964 in Saint-Etienne, France. Beginning in the 1980s he made art with such mutable materials as sulfur, lead, and beeswax. In 1993, he began using glass, receiving widespread recognition for his sparkling, jewelry-like artworks made with glass globes crafted on the Venetian island of Murano and in other glass centers around the world. He has had solo exhibitions at such venues as the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain (2003) and Centre Pompidou (2011) and has participated in international exhibitions including Too French at the Hara Museum ARC in Japan (1991), Documenta IX in Germany (1992), the Kwangju Biennale in South Korea (2000), and the Tenth Istanbul Biennial (2007). An upcoming solo exhibition presented by L&M Arts, New York, from September 6 through October 6, 2012, will include a number of new artworks. Othoniel has also been chosen to create a permanent landscape installation at the Water Theatre Grove in the Gardens of the Palace of Versailles in 2013.


Jean-Michel Othoniel’s work will be on view as part of a retrospective exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum through Dec 2, 2012.
