Julio González’s “Danseuse à la marguerite” on display at the MAMC+ (Saint Etienne), through Sept. 2019

Danseuse à la marguerite (Dancer with daisy), a 1937 sculpture by Julio González, is currently displayed at the Musée d’art moderne et contemporain (MAMC+) of Saint Etienne Métropole, in their temporary exhibition, “Vingt-quatre heures de la vie d’une femme” (“Twenty-four hours in the life of a woman”).

This unprecedented exhibition tells the story of an imaginary and multiple day through the 250 works of art of various media displayed, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs and design objects. Playful and poetic, with its dematerialized forms, Danseuse à la marguerite contributes to this reflection on the intimate and the universal, the poetry of everyday life, the emotion of real life.

Its curator is Aurélie Voltz, General director of the MAMC+ since October 2017. Her aim is to give increased visibility to this collection, which includes the second largest number of modern and contemporary works in France, after the Musée national d’art moderne Centre Georges Pompidou.
