Built in the 1940s, in an Art Deco style, the Villa Logis d’Azur is located opposite the port of La Napoule. Transformed into a cultural space, since 2020, it presents works from the SAFA Collection to the general public. It hosts a permanent collection all year round and organizes thematic exhibitions each summer that highlight major works.
Representing the last two major movements of the French artistic avant-garde of the 1960s and 1970s, the exhibition “Figuration Narrative et Nouveau Réalisme” presents eleven major artists from June 17, 2022 at 26 avenue Henry Clews facing the Port of La Napoule.
Narrative Figuration painters reject “art for art’s sake”. They seize the media culture, hijacking the codes of advertising imagery, comics or classic painting, with insolence, political subversion and irony.
NeoRealism artists propose new perceptive approaches to reality. They advocated the use of objects taken from the reality of their time, for example the accumulations of waste and objects manufactured by Arman or packaging of Christo.
An ensemble of 33 works by Arman, Christo, César, Niki de Saint-Phalle, Sosno, Adami, Erró, Klasen, Monory, Schlosser, Télémaque, from a private collection can be seen until October 16, 2022.
