The New Realists – Radical Rebellion in 1960s Europe

PARIS | 24 JUNE

In the 1960s, while America was being wowed by Pop art, Europe had its own answer to bringing life and art closer together. In this episode of Expert Voices, learn about Nouveau Réalism - a groundbreaking movement in which artists created radical and rebellious sculptures and paintings in protest against the rise of consumerism. Our upcoming Art Contemporain Day Sale (24 June | Paris) features an exceptional private European collection of historical New Realist art, including works by Niki de Saint Phalle, Arman, Daniel Spoerri, Mimmo Rotella and Christo and Jean-Claude.
