MAMAC AMAZONES | I VISIT
Discover the teaser of the exhibition “She-Bam Pow POP Wizz! Les amazones du POP”.
In October 2001, Niki de Saint Phalle made an exceptional donation to the Musée d’Art moderne et d’Art contemporain de Nice: 190 pieces, including 63 paintings and sculptures and 127 works on paper.
This donation was supplemented by the acquisition by the City of Nice for the museum of a monumental sculpture from the series of the Brides : La mariée sous l’arbre, 1963, acquired with the help of the Heritage Fund.
With the POP movement that emerged at the end of the 1950s, artists were inspired by everything produced by the booming mass consumer society.
They adopted all the signs of popular culture and celebrated as much as they criticized the advent of this new society.
From Warhol, the “pope” of pop to Arman, the master of “accumulations”, follow the guide of the day, Hélène Guenin, director of MAMAC, through major pieces from the 1950s and 1960s, iconic to the museum’s collections.
