++ "CONSIDÉRER LE MONDE", MUSEUM COLLECTION
On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain de Saint Étienne Métropole is shedding light on the diversity of its extensive and unique collection. This exhibition proposes a reading beyond chronologies and medium-based sections. The diversity and extent of the MAMC+ collections allow this plurality of dialogues between works of different time periods and techniques. The recreation of lineage and elective affinities organized in stem is likely to surprise, touch, intrigue, disturb and open the way to fruitful debate.
Our 30th anniversary exhibition will focus on the constantly renewed representations of the world by artists of various nationalities, whether through painting, sculpture, drawing, photography or design. When confronted to the most primal, cold or minimal narrative writing, to a focus on the sole power of the language of forms, materials and colors, to the fascination for technology or the return to primitivism, to the search for sublime or the absolute… we will all be left to wonder.
