What is the link between today’s artists and those of yesterday? This is one of the questions raised by the presentation of contemporary art in the museum’s collections.
Changing the framework in which artists bear witness to our time and their own time cannot be done by ignoring the past.
This is why the confrontation with the painting of Yves Brayer is essential here. His journey, his curiosity and his love of the places he travelled through, are all things that remain and inspire contemporary artists.
Through his numerous journeys around the Mediterranean, he painted in Spain, Morocco, Italy, Provence and the Camargue, where architectures give way to pure landscapes.
These are the themes that the exhibition “Leaving a trace” proposes to explore.
Audrey Langlet Odatempo, Maliza Kiasuwa, Gabriel Boutros and Tomek Jarolim, Gouzelle Ishmatova, Abdullah Al Qandeel, and Michal Korman, working with ceramics, textiles, music and technology, photography, and
music and technology, photography, drawing and painting come together to echo the work of one of their predecessors.
