Derrière le miroir

From 1945 to 1982, the French magazine Derrière le miroir served as a virtual art exhibition for Galerie Maeght Paris, a prominent Paris art gallery that featured works by artists such as Henri Matisse and Marc Chagall. Publisher/gallery owner Aimé Maeght incorporated original works from these artists to complement the exhibits, and the resulting monthly magazine became a work of art in its own right.

The current exhibition at the Broad Art Museum incorporates covers and prints from the MSU Broad collection, shedding a light on this unique aspect of modern art history. It also effectively showcases how Maeght’s personal approach to working with artists challenged time-honored boundaries between dealers and artists.

Stay tuned for details with an exact date for the APS Adult Conversation Night. And don’t forget to check out the exhibit, which is on display now through May 12, 2019.
