In 1964, the jury of the Venice Biennale awarded its American Grand Prix for the first time to an American artist, Robert Rauschenberg. This was an initiative that was commonly interpreted as a definitive recognition of the migration of the world art scene from Paris to New York. However, if it is undeniable that from the sixties on, artists from across the Atlantic triumphed, European creators were not outdone. As proof, the plethora of movements of which they revealed themselves at the foundations: New Realism, Lyric Abstraction, Narrative Figuration, New Figuration ... Nineteen major artists, from Adami to Zao Wou-Ki, via Arman , Buren, Corneille or Combas, testify here for us and elucidate the meaning of their respective practices. Produced from the holdings of the Audiovisual Encyclopedia of Contemporary Art (Imago), Michel Onfray wanted the Gallery and Frémeaux & Associates to publish this essential sound document on the history of contemporary art.
