In front of the work - 28 June – 16 November 2014

Prolongation until November 16

In 2014, the Maeght Foundation invites all art lovers to celebrate its fiftieth anniversary. Fifty years of shared passion with artists and audiences around the world in the service of creation.

For its major summer exhibition, the Maeght Foundation chose to pay tribute to the works in the spirit of a very unique face to face encounter, enhanced by the pure, luminous architecture of the Fondation Maeght.

This exhibition will be dedicated to both the "masterpieces" and more original works as a testimony to the visionary choices of Aimé Maeght and his team. Some one hundred works will recall this process. Valerio Adami, Pierre Alechinsky, Jean (Hans) Arp, Francis Bacon, Miquel Barceló, Jean Bazaine, Pierre Bonnard, Georges Braque, Pol Bury, Alexander Calder, Pier Paolo Calzolari, César, Marc Chagall, Eduardo Chillida, Christo, Marco Del Re, André Derain, Otto Dix, Jean Dubuffet, François Fiedler, Sam Francis, Lucian Freud, Joan Gardy-Artigas, Gérard Garouste, Gérard Gasiorowski, Alberto Giacometti, Hans Hartung, Fabrice Hyber, Vassily Kandinsky, Ellsworth Kelly, Zoltan Kemeny, Wifredo Lam, Fernand Léger, Richard Lindner, Luigi Mainolfi, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, Joan Mitchell, Bernard Moninot, Jacques Monory, Paul Rebeyrolle, Germaine Richier, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Nicolas De Staël, Saul Steinberg, Pierre Tal Coat, Antoni Tàpies, Djamel Tatah, Raoul Ubac, Bram Van Velde, Bernar Venet.

Those who love the Maeght Foundation will rediscover some of the major works that have marked its history, but also some surprising works will be exhibited that highlight the importance of courage, sensitivity and the spirit of discovery left as legacies to the Foundation.

« This is not a museum »
When the visual arts interact with dance, poetry, music 
29 November 2014 – 15 March 2015

In 2014, the Maeght Foundation invites all art lovers to celebrate its fiftieth anniversary with three major events. The third event will be devoted to artistic encounters and will be accompanied by concerts and events orchestrated in the spirit of the “Nuits de la Fondation Maeght”. Conceived as an exhibition-mosaic, this last event will honor the interactions between the visual arts and dance, literature, music and theater through audio, photographic and film archives as well as the presentation of works emphasising these different disciplines. "This is not a museum," this phrase borrowed from André Malraux affirms how much the performing arts meant to Aimé Maeght.

The exhibition will recall the prestigious “Nuits de la Fondation Maeght” and it will pay tribute to the artists that have given legendary performances here. Thanks to a partnership with the INA, this exhibition will recapture the spirit of those encounters through many film and sound recordings. The play "Mori el Merma" from the Théâtre de la Claca, this "wonderful" event that took place in 1979 at the Maeght Foundation, will also be honored thanks to a loan by the Miró Foundation in Barcelona of some costumes and masks created by Joan Miró.

Art in all its forms to pay tribute to this place for creation.

These exchanges also concern the art of today. This is how, through generations and heritage, this exhibition will present the work of young French artist Damien Deroubaix who will connect with visual works and texts by Pablo Picasso under the title "Picasso and Me", but also feature the dialogues of artists Jean-Charles Blais, Christian Bonnefoi, Pascal Broccolichi, Marco Del Re, Claudine Drai, Lars Fredrikson, Gérard Fromanger, Jörg Immendorff, Ladislas Kijno, Alain Lestié, Joan Miró, François Rouan and Hélène Vanel with the performing arts of dance, poetry and music.
