CHAGALL AND ME! The 50th Anniversary Of The Chagall Museum
Exhibition is extended to January 8, 2024.

In 2023, Nice is joyfully celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the creation of the Marc Chagall national Museum. Inaugurated by the artist on his birthday, July 7th, 1973, the museum, or rather the house that Chagall wanted to host the cycle of the Biblical Message, still carries a powerful universal message today. To celebrate this generous gift made 50 years ago, the exhibition Chagall and Me! invites present-day personalities such as artists, writers, dancers, musicians, and more to share their contemporary interpretation of these paintings.

Ben's "On est tous fous" - through May 6, 2024 | loosley translated: We are all nuts

The City of Nice is hosting a major exhibition of the works of Ben Vautier—simply known as Ben, one of the 20th century's leading artists, known for his actions and paintings. His work is both a reflection on art at its most fundamental and an integration of our everyday lives at their most particular, succeeding in turning life into art. The museum has given Ben carte blanche to occupy more than 500 m2 of the museum, usually dedicated to naïve, raw and singular art, with affection and humor.
