"They make the abstraction", when the women artists leave the shade...

  • A vast exhibition very ambitious
  • It offers a history of the contributions of women artists to abstraction through 106 artists and more than 500 works dated from the 1860s to the 1980s
  • The exhibition focuses on the careers of artists, often unjustly eclipsed by the history of art, by returning to their specific contribution to the history of abstraction
  • The course is chronological. It mixes plastic arts, dance, photography, film and decorative arts
  • Some of the following are presented big names Barbara Hepworth, Georgiana Houghton, Sonia Delaunay-Terk, Judy Chicago, Joan Mitchell... But also all the so many forgotten artists of the history of art
  • Because to be a female artist in the 20th century (but also before?), is to face the condescension of male artists, critics, the art market and museums
  • The exhibition, by nature non-exhaustive, is abundant. All styles are covered. Our advice, don't hesitate to skip rooms and choose to focus on your favorites
  • Finally, if you wish to a private family visit of the permanent collections of the Centre Pompidou, do not hesitate to Contact us
