Irene Kopelman. Modèles marins. Dessiner la régénération.

Venue: Galerie contemporaine

After an initial collaboration in 2018, MAMAC and the Argentinean artist Irene Kopelman have initiated a long-term research project focused on the marine ecosystem of Nice and its surroundings. With the support of two scientific laboratories, she has observed tiny marine creatures with an exceptional capacity for regeneration. MAMAC is now unveiling the drawings, paintings, glassworks and ceramics produced by the artist as a result of this project.

Devenir Fleur

Venue: Second floor

As part of the "Flowers" biennial, MAMAC is offering a multidisciplinary exhibition on the ecological, anthropological and geopolitical issues surrounding flowers, as seen through the eyes of artists from the early 1960s to the present day. With the scientific advances on the intelligence of plants and a new approach to living beings, the desire to multiply attempts at interrelating with nature is growing. As a symbol of fragility and rebirth, the flower has become a particularly powerful marker for illuminating current issues. It gives rise to a botany of world history, as well as to new forms of sensibility and thought.
