Christian Boltanski is a French visual artist that works with mixed media installations. Preoccupied with themes of remembrance, mortality, childhood and the passing of time, his artworks, which include photography, sculpture, painting and installation, often work as narratives that reflect both societal spectrums and personal features. From story to History, Boltanski emerges as one of the leading artist in the contemporary art scene since the early 1970s, exhibiting in the most important museums worldwide. On November 2019 the Centre Pompidou dedicate an exhibition to the artist.
