Through the presentation of paintings, sculptures, photographs, films, textiles and literary works, this exhibition highlights the primordial role of women in the development of the great artistic movements of modernity. These pioneers, born at the end of the 19th century or at the very beginning of the 20th century, finally gained access to the great art schools which had previously been reserved for men. They were the first to be recognised as artists, to own a studio, a gallery or a publishing house, to run workshops in art schools, and to represent naked bodies. Their lives and their bodies, which they are the first to claim as their own, became the tools of their work, which they reinvented in all materials and on all supports. The interdisciplinarity and performativity of their work have influenced entire generations of artists and continue to do so today.
