Exhibition

from 25 June  to 02 October 

Discovery tour: Waterside

The first museum rebuilt in France after the Second World War, inaugurated in 1961 by André Malraux, the MuMa - Musée d'art moderne André Malraux benefits from an exceptional location facing the sea and the entrance to the port. Right from the start of its reconstruction, it was designed, through the choice of its site and the transparency of its glass walls, as a showcase for its collections but also as a place to contemplate the landscape, this dual function authorizing and serving a sensitive discovery of the works which for the most part testify to the taste of the 19th century for the landscape. The museum's collections and this brand new care given to their dialogue with the environment, partly guide the programming of exhibitions. As an extension of the exhibitions Waves, The clouds, over there…the marvelous clouds, Impression(s), sun…, the MuMa is hosting Le vent this summer. "Qui ne peut être peint", an exhibition devoted to the wind.

 

SHAPING THE INVISIBLE

This is the timeless challenge that the wind has confronted men. The exhibition Le vent. “Qui ne peut être peint” is devoted, focusing more particularly on the plastic forms developed by artists over the centuries, as the understanding of this meteor becomes more precise.

 

THE COURSE UNVEILS 170 WORKS

Paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, videos, glasses, etc. from Antiquity to the contemporary period because it was indeed necessary to wait for the invention of cinema, the only one capable of capturing movement in its duration, so that the wind is no longer suggested by its fixed image.

 

THE EXHIBITION BRING TOGETHER MORE THAN 100 ARTISTS

…Dürer, Goya, Hokusaï, François Baron Gérard, Turner, Corot, Hugo, Daumier, Millet, Nadar, Boudin, Daum, Claude Monet, Renoir, Gallé, Anquetin, Steinlen, Sorolla, Vallotton, Vlaminck, Van Dongen, Raoul Dufy, Arp, Man Ray, Lartigue, Brassaï, Gilbert Garcin, Alexandre Hollan, Jeff Wall, Bernard Moninot, Corinne Mercadier, Philippe Favier, Eric Bourret, Jean-Baptiste Née,… How can “that which cannot be painted” which, “by combining inconsistency and invisibility, escapes direct imitation and exceeds the territory assigned to representation”, can it take shape? This exhibition is presented on the occasion of the 6th edition of Un Été Au Havre. It will be followed by a second part, mainly made up of contemporary works, entitled Meteors and presented from November 19, 2022 to March 5, 2023.
