The Marc Chagall National Museum offers a sequel to the exhibition on display at the Fernand Léger Museum in Biot. Here the visitor can discover the work of those artists from the 1980s to the present day who have chosen to paint in an alternative fashion.

Following on from the questions posed in the previous decade, artists in the 80s continued to worry about the nature or identity of painting and the limits of this medium. Both  Adrian Schiess and Pascal Pinaud challenged the boundaries of painting in very different ways, creating either shimmering monochrome works on shiny surfaces or using objects to create a ‘plastic reality’. The petrol black pieces by the group BP reflect the critical spirit that inspired them. The use of unusual materials in the works of Sandra Lecoq, Marc Chevalier, Dominique Figarella or Michel Blazy such as tissues, sellotape, chewing gum and perishable food items highlight the experimental renewal of this art form. For this exhibition, several previously unseen monumental pieces by the artists  Cédric Teisseire and Jérôme Robbe will be on display outside the museum.
