Center Pompidou, Paris

(gallery 1 – Level 6)

May 5 - August 23, 2021


A tribute to women artists whose abstract works have marked the 20th century, this temporary exhibition is a creative international panaroma of currents and media that does not fail to move us. This necessary point on their contribution to art in general was required.

Lynda Benglis, New York, 1969

Along with famous names such as Louise Bourgeois, Louise Nevelson, Sonia Delaunay-Terk, Loïe Fuller, or Berenice Abbott, many other female artists are represented through their photographic portraits at the entrance of the show. 

Georgiana Houghton (1814-1884) - Sonia Delaunay (1885-1979) - Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) - Germaine Dulac (1882-1942)

Sonia Delaunay, Prismes électriques, 1914

Hilma af Klint, 1915

Georgiana Houghton, 1862

Vera Pagava, La Grande Ville, 1959

Liubov Popova, 1924 / 1925

From the outset, the visitor becomes aware of their presence and then of the specific environments in which they evolved and which favored or, on the contrary, limited their recognition.

Invisibilized by educational, social, institutional, ideological, even aesthetic contexts at the same time, these women have, against winds and tides, held the course of formal expression. Obviously present at the decisive turning points of the world history, they brought as much to the abstraction as the men who held the reins of it.

With spiritualist, decorative, performative and even scientific roots, abstraction is practiced by women in a variety of artistic currents and modes of expression such as painting, sculpture, dance, decorative arts (including New Tapestry), photography and film.

Judy Chicago, Smoke Bodies / California Desert, 1972 / 2018

The exhibition is also intended to be global, including the modernities of Latin America, the Middle East and Asia, even as it begins in Europe and the United States.

An important Parisian exhibition not to be missed this summer! It will travel to the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao from October 22nd, 2021 to February 27th, 2022 and then, in part, to the Centre Pompidou in Shanghai in spring 2022.
