Exhibitions within the framework of the Biennale des Arts de Nice.

The MAMAC is offering a multidisciplinary exhibition on the ecological, anthropological and geopolitical issues surrounding flowers through the eyes of artists from the early 1960s to the present day.
Flowers have been used throughout the history of art, including in recent times, as a motif, a symbol of nature, language, beauty and eroticism, as a political emblem, and as a medicinal and edible source.

With the scientific advances on the intelligence of the plant and a new approach to wild thought (Lévi-Strauss), the desire to multiply attempts at interrelation with nature is enriched. As a symbol of fragility and rebirth, the flower becomes a particularly powerful marker for illuminating current ecological and anthropological issues. It gives rise to a botany of world and post-colonial history, as well as to new forms of sensibility and thought.

Today, ecological imperatives favour a green artistic reflection which is deployed in the exhibitions both through their themes (the planetary garden, nature, plants) and in the eco-responsible methods of their production (recycling, limiting transport, etc). These issues have been at the heart of the MAMAC's concerns since 2016. This opus devoted to "Flowers", within the framework of the Biennial, will also follow on from the exhibition "Cosmogonies. Au gré des éléments" (MAMAC, summer 2018) which drew an ode to impermanence and the emergence of forms "assisted" by nature from Yves Klein to Thu Van Tran.
