Exhibition "Cœurs, du Romantisme dans l'Art Contemporain"
THE HEART AT THE CENTRE OF THIS EXHIBITION
This year, on the occasion of Valentine's Day, the Musée de la Vie Romantique offers an exhibition dedicated to the representation of the heart as an expression of love. "Cœurs, du Romantisme dans l'Art Contemporain" (Hearts, Romanticism in Contemporary Art) presents very different works of art ranging from painting and sculpture to neon lights and photography. From 14 February to 12 July 2020, you will find a selection of 40 works by around thirty contemporary artists such as Niki de Saint Phalle, Jim Dine and Annette Messager.
The heart is presented in all its forms: as an organ, an aesthetic motif or a symbol. We find the great themes of love in the broadest terms: seduction, love at first sight, declaration, eroticism, break-up, mourning and eternal love. The inauguration will take place on Valentine's Day (what could be more symbolic?), access to this exhibition will exceptionally be free of charge from 10am to 10pm to celebrate this day dedicated to love, with many special animations for the occasion. I therefore invite all lovers of art, music and poetry to go there!
FROM ROMANTICISM TO CONTEMPORARY ART
Usually devoted exclusively to Romantic artists, the Musée de la Vie Romantique innovates with this exhibition by introducing contemporary art into its 19th century collections. Indeed, it would appear that the institution wishes to open its galleries to more recent works in the future.
This first exhibition presents an interesting parallel between the Romanticism movement and Contemporary Art from which it would be inspired with several common themes including the expression of feelings and passions, torments, evasion, dreams and ideals.
