The Centre Pompidou pays tribute to one of North America's most important painters. Ignored during her lifetime, she is praised today for the great acuity of her portraiture of the different strata of American society.
A precursor of an intersectional approach, the American painter Alice Neel, who died in 1984, always knew how to link the cause of women to the question of origins and social class. Scheduled for 2020 and then postponed, the Centre Pompidou's retrospective-event devoted to the feminist icon is finally opening.
The exhibition is divided into two parts freely conceived around the notions of class struggle and gender struggle. In total, some 75 paintings, drawings and documents** are on display, testifying to the artist's strong political and social commitment.
From 05/10/2022 to 16/01/2023 between 11 am and 9 pm. Closed on Tuesday.
Full price: 16 €, Reduced price: 13 €.
