'She-Bam Pow POP Wizz! The Amazons of Pop' at the MAMAC, Nice

Until 28 March 2021

To mark the 30th anniversary of the museum, this exhibition honours the Amazons of the pop movement - paper or real - who shook up the second half of the 20th century. More broadly, it highlights a dialogue between Nouveau Realism and pop art through the work of the Franco-American Niki de Saint Phalle, and underlines the contribution from European and North American women to this artistic movement.

'The Roman Emperor: a mortal among the gods' at the Musée de la Romanité, Nîmes

13 May - 19 September 2021

In collaboration with the Louvre, the Musée de la Romanité is taking you back 2,000 years to the time of the imperial cult established in the 1st century BC. In ancient Rome, the emperor was the link between men and the gods. With a tour of 150 works, go behind the scenes and learn about the rites of this cult, which gave the emperor the status of mortal among the gods.
