Exhibition “Living Art, Form, Movement, Color”

From March 16th to May 18th


The exhibition presents a selection of abstract, expressionist, and surrealist works presented at the Biennales de Menton, a key event for artistic creation in Europe in the second half of the 20th century.

The new exhibition at the Galerie des Musées du Palais de l’Europe, Living Art, Form, Movement, Color, presents a selection of works presented at the Biennales de Menton, a key event for artistic creation in Europe in the second half of the 20th century.


Aim of the exhibition is not to provide an overview of the Biennales, but to focus on painters who have embodied a new form of Abstraction or who have rethought their relationship with the world. Most of these artists came to the forefront after the Liberation, supported by young gallery owners, and achieved success and awards at art fairs and biennials around the world.

Exhibition: “I Remain with You”

On the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of the death of Jean Cocteau, the museum that he himself conceived as a testament to his art is returning to its historical layout.

Jean Cocteau died on October 11th, 1963, leaving behind a work as rich as it is incredibly varied. The question of his posterity and the future of his art was one of the artist’s main concerns in his last years, and Menton provided the solution by offering him the Bastion to set up his museum. In this showcase, decorated by Cocteau himself, he wanted to exhibit some of the most emblematic works of his dazzling career: colorful pastels, monumental tapestries, surprising paintings, and bold ceramics make up the original collection of this true testament museum…

Not to mention the famous series of “Lovers,” drawings that perfectly embody the Mediterranean inspiration of the artist. Sixty years after the death of the Prince of Poets, the Musée Jean Cocteau—le Bastion has returned to exhibit his historical work, paying a vibrant tribute to his guardian artist, echoing the words he wanted to be engraved on his tombstone: “Je reste avec vous” (“I remain with you”).
