Exhibition "Le rêve d'être Artiste"

From date 20 September 2019 to date 06 January 2020

After the thematic exhibition Joie de Vivre and the great Jean-François Millet retrospective, the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Lille presents The Dream of Being an Artist, an exhibition that tells how artists have become artists.
In six sections and around a hundred works, the exhibition will cover recurring themes such as signature, self-representation, genius or corporatism. As a narrative, each section will be like the chapter of a book, within which the works, each accompanied by a text, will be like the pages of this chapter, in a precise order of narration and clashing. Paintings, drawings, engravings, sculptures, but also extracts of films and television shows will all be at the service of a story: that of the irresistible rise of the Artist.

Exhibition organized by the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Lille in co-production with the Réunion des Musées Nationaux - Grand Palais as part of ELDORADO, the 5th thematic edition of Lille3000.
