The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nice considers the artist's fundamental question about color when it becomes essential. "Color forward" emphasizes a mode of artistic expression whose color would be the necessary condition. The project is built around artists of different generations who all put color at the forefront of their aesthetic choices, at one point or another of their career, while they resided on the Côte d'Azur.
Several lines of thought guided the choice of works: color is the first state of sensitivity of the work, its climate, its emotion; she is life. She is a vector of spirituality. It asserts itself as a constitutive act, a manifesto. It conquers its autonomy with respect to line and form. It generates the erasure of the figure until abstraction.
