Nice, 1947: three young men on the beach share the world between themselves.
Yves Klein takes the blue of the sky, Arman seizes the land and its riches while the air goes to the poet Claude Pascal.
From this mythical and casual pact is born a constellation of gestures and encounters that will change the history of art.
In Paris, in 1977, the Centre Pompidou celebrated the artistic emulation of Nice by entrusting the exhibition “About Nice” to one of the actors of this epic: Ben.
In 2017, MAMAC returned to the emergence of this artistic scene, its charismatic personalities and the revolution in gestures, attitudes and forms they announced.

The catalogue « Gustav Metzger. Remember Nature » accompanies the retrospective devoted to the artist by MAMAC. As early as 1960, Metzger developed a reflection and artistic experiments on the downsides of consumer society and the ecological issues that remain highly relevant today. The book includes essays by Hélène Guenin, curator and director of MAMAC, and Bénédicte Ramade, art historian and specialist in art and ecology, as well as an unpublished interview with the artist by Mathieu Copeland, curator. The artist’s Manifestos are entirely reproduced and translated to shed additional light on his work.
