The exhibition will not classify works by theme (the subject is artistic creation, not representation), nor by artist (it will not be a salon), nor by technique, nor even by country. The exhibition’s scenography will be mainly chronological and will highlight the evolution of an aesthetic inherited from photography towards an art of precision and framing up to the latest digital experiments.
The issue at stake goes beyond the simple history of painting the real, or drawing it, or sculpting it, for these artists who have been active over the last sixty years: it is the conditions of our vision of the world, for each of us as well as for society as a whole, that are in question.
So let us learn to see. On the large surface dedicated to this exhibition, all the possibilities of a generous scenography will be able to honour the artists (as well as the galleries which supported their work) who gave this movement its letters of nobility.
