Extrav­a­ganza Godon, 100 years, 100 works

The museum of Le Tou­quet has staged many exhi­bi­tions, includ­ing Henry Moore, Jean Dubuf­fet and, last year, The Sec­ond School of Paris, and is now delighted to present “Extrav­a­ganza” — one hun­dred years, one hun­dred works of art. What bet­ter choice for the museum than Alain Godon as the per­son­i­fi­ca­tion of our resort in 2012, this, the year of its cen­te­nary? This vision­ary artist and ambas­sador of his uni­ver­sal lan­guage, an “adopted” native of Le Tou­quet, looks at the town, “his” town, through a comic and mis­chie­vous lens. With his keen sense of obser­va­tion, he humourously catches life’s every­day moments in which we delight upon recog­nis­ing our­selves. The exhi­bi­tion “Extrav­a­ganza” with its one hun­dred or so works of art promises to be a spell­bind­ing fiesta. By dint of Alain’s joy­ful and colour­ful brush­strokes, the museum has rede­fined itself. Through the eyes of the artist, vis­i­tors can dis­cover the cities which are dear to his heart: not only Le Tou­quet Paris-​Plage of course, but also New York and Paris.
