Alice Neel. ‘Un regard engagé’ – Place Georges Pompidou, France
5 Oct — 16 Jan 2023
Crossing the periods of abstraction, Pop Art, minimal and conceptual art, the American artist Alice Neel (1900-1984) has always remained against the trend of the avant-gardes and faithful to a very personal figuration. The retrospective dedicated to him by the Center Pompidou invites us to rediscover his work through two major themes: the class struggle and the struggle between the sexes. It highlights the political and social commitment of an artist, for whom the act of painting is fundamentally a search for truth.
