Point of View on the Collection

The exhibition Blue is intended to shine light on certain constellations in the Musée Collection and lay out a canvas of chromatic references.

While colour often defies language, this exhibition wishes to reveal conceptual metamorphoses that show how our experience of colour has been transformed and how the new expectations related to its use by artists are defined. The question then became: What story can a colour tell within a museum collection? In response to which, blue was the obvious answer.

Rather like a colour chart, this exhibition, made up of over forthy works, would like to recreate constellations among the artists, for, just like words in language, colours take on meaning only if they are included in a network of relationships.
