« On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the MAMAC in Nice presents an exhibition-event dedicated to pop heroines. POW! »

Whether they are comic book superheroines from the sixties or real-life artists, the women in this exhibition have all fought for a better world. They are free and powerful, like warrior Amazons. If Barbarella or Jodelle were models for the girls of the 1960s, the artists presented here created a new artistic language: pop. Aesthetic and feminist revolution, but it is indeed women who are (still) at the origin of all this. Through brightly coloured works with a comic book look, they claim sexual emancipation, social rights and pacifism. For the art of the pop Amazons, while humorous, also highlights past horrors. It is a real movement that stands against the occultism of wars and other political decisions. Their works openly shout: Love is all we need! These women are Brigitte Bardot, Jane Fonda, Niki de Saint Phalle, Carolee Schneemann and Hannah Wilke, to name but a few. For the first time on this scale, MAMAC is presenting a little-known facet of the international pop movement. A facet that is also a fundamental part of the museum's collection. This exhibition is in partnership with AWARE (Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions) who have published on their website focuses on some of the artists presented here.
