Ongoing Exhibitions

Exhibition: In the game! Artists and sport (1870-1930)

Until: September 1st, 2024 (103 days remaining.)

Description:
From Impressionism to Cubism, this event will show how sport, sports and sportsmen and women became the subjects of modernity and the avant-garde. At the crossroads of the 19th and 20th centuries, while Pierre de Courbertin was inventing a contemporary version of the ancient Olympiads, sport was undergoing a series of mutations that artists were taking full measure of. From its aristocratic and English origins in the 19th century, sport gradually became acculturated across the European continent and as far afield as the United States, democratizing both spectacle and practice, to become a mass leisure activity at the beginning of the following century. The exhibition will explore the ethical issues and aesthetic modalities of the way sports are viewed.
