Painting otherness.

Through a multidisciplinary approach, between the history of art and the history of ideas, this exhibition explores aesthetic, political, social and racial issues as well as the imaginary world revealed by the representation of black figures in visual arts, from the abolition of slavery in France (1794) to the present day.
The exhibition is chiefly interested in the model, and therefore the dialogue between the artist painting, sculpting, engraving or photographing, and the model in their pose. In particular, it explores the changes in the way that black subjects are represented in the major works of Théodore Géricault, Charles Cordier, Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux, Edouard Manet, Paul Cézanne and Henri Matisse, as well as the photographers Nadar and Carjat.
