The influence of Michael Jackson goes far beyond music. A true icon of his generation with a fascinating personality, the King of Pop has inspired many artists, whether they are designers, painters, sculptors or visual artists. The exhibition, and the catalog that accompanies it, decrypt the impact of the star on contemporary art, but also highlight how the eclectic artistic tastes of Michael Jackson were, like his philosophy, totally open non-ideological and non-discriminatory. In this regard, they will highlight the challenges of its transversal culture within the African-American community.
In total, 150 works by more than 40 artists - such as Andy Warhol, David LaChapelle, Isa Genzken (to which the Museum of Modern Art in New York gave a retrospective) or the eccentric Grayson Perry, a must-see figure English pop art, to name a few - will be reproduced.
