MIAM-Hervé Di Rosa continues its work of exploring art territories that are too often ignored. Who are these painters who had a moment of popular glory before falling into oblivion, these artists of undeniable success, yet relegated to the shadows of history?

BEAUBADUGLY – The Other History of Painting will present the original paintings of these artists on the margins of the common imagination and taste, who sometimes sold thousands of reproductions of their works in supermarkets, and whose posters are familiar to us all.

On the first floor of the museum, Colette Barbier and Nina Childress – associate curators for this part of the exhibition – will offer us conceptual, ironic, playful, admiring and offbeat responses from contemporary artists of different generations and origins.
