Première rétrospective de l’artiste Ghada Amer en France. Résolument féministe, elle s’est emparée en peintre du médium traditionnellement féminin de la broderie. Entre hommage et revendication, ses toiles entrent en dialogue avec les maîtres d’une histoire de l’art trop longtemps dominée par les hommes.

Exhibition Catalogue “Ghada Amer”, presented in three places: at the MUCEM, at the Frac Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur and the chapel of the Center de la Vieille Charité, Marseille (December 2, 2022 - April 16, 2023).
Embroidery, painting, ceramics, bronze and the creation of gardens are at the heart of his art. Between East and West, Ghada Amer questions from one culture to another the representations, the relations of domination, the processes of assimilation, opposition or translation. Today, she is a major voice on post-colonial and feminist issues in contemporary creation.
Born in Cairo in 1963, Ghada Amer moved to Nice with her parents in 1974. She trained there at the Villa Arson before joining the Institut des Hautes Etudes en Arts Plastiques in Paris. Revolted by the difficulty of asserting herself as a painter in the 1980s – and a fortiori as a woman painter –, Ghada Amer developed a work of embroidered canvases and installations as well as sculptures and gardens, through which painting gradually affirms. In 1999, she was invited by Harald Szeemann to exhibit at the Venice Biennale, where she received the UNESCO prize for the promotion of the arts. Since 1996, she lives and works in New York.
