The exhibition returns to the thought of Clement Greenberg (1909-1994) who dominated abstraction thinking for decades. Far from this statement, the exhibition attempts to show the relationship that abstraction has today with narrative, history and a look at the world. Whether political, cosmogonic, ecological or feminist, these works proclaim, each in its own way, the transitive and resolutely contextual dimension of abstraction – which is precisely what Greenbergian modernism had tried to repress.
