She-Bam Pow POP Wizz ! Evelyne Axell at the Mamac


Explosive news for Evelyne AXELL who is definitely everywhere ! Here in Nice for an exhibition-event for the 30th anniversary of MAMAC, She-Bam Pow POP Wizz! tells us the open story of a generation of European and North American women who contributed with bold and flamboyance, to a less famous side of international Pop Art. For MAMAC 30th anniversary, this exhibition highlights a major axis of its collection – the face to face between New Realism and Pop Art – and one of its charismatic figures: the Franco-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle. In her wake, it is the essential contribution of female artists to Pop Art history that is shown here.
