Chagall. A cry of freedom, Musée national Marc Chagall, Nice, June 1st - September 16

Throughout his life, which was marked by two wars and one exile, Marc Chagall created a body of work that is deeply rooted in the history of the 20th century. A figure of displacement and migration, the artist criss-crossed the world in the midst of the torments of the century, from his childhood in Russia  to France, Germany, the United States and Mexico, before settling in the Mediterranean. His art, imbued with a profound humanism, nourished by his Jewish roots and by listening to the cultures he has encountered and the experiences he has lived through, is the messenger of an unwavering commitment to human beings and their rights, to equality and tolerance between all beings. 

 

Backed up by recent research on a wide range of previously unpublished documents from the artist's archives, the exhibition offers a chrono-biographical tour presented from the new angle of Chagall's political commitment, bringing together numerous masterpieces.

Chagall: A Cry for Freedom at Fundación MAPFRE, Madrid, February 2 - May 5, 2024

This exhibition, the result of a collaboration between La Piscine – Musée d’Art et d’Industrie André Diligent (Roubaix), Fundación MAPFRE and the Musée national Marc Chagall in Nice, offers a broad overview of his work in the light of the historical events that Chagall had to face and the stances he adopted in the face of them, in a proposal that represents the first complete reading of his work from this perspective: that of his unconditional idealism, his unshakeable belief in universal peace and the firm socio-political commitment that derives from it.
