Andres Serrano, a master in the art of portraiture, blends classical culture, particularly ancient painting, with elements of modern pop culture to create unique works. His photographs, though sometimes controversial, are a reflection on the contemporary individual and the contradictions of American society. Theexhibition highlights this duality, illustrated in particular by the Donald Trump phenomenon, which has become both a symptom and an emblem of this schizophrenic society. Serrano's work, by its often provocative nature, invites the viewer to deeply question the taboos of a puritanical America.

The Musée Maillol offers a particularly revealing exhibition, featuring 89 emblematic works byAndres Serrano. Visitors will have the opportunity to discover works that have sometimes provoked debate and even vandalism. Some pieces, considered shocking, will be presented in a dedicated space, allowing a complete and uncensored exploration of the artist's work.

Some of the artist's photographs have toured the world, others are less well known in France. In each shot, we find the same force, the same hard-hitting vision that Andres Serrano has of the world. The artist's portraits are both colorful and sober: they place the subject at the center of the image, compelling us to look at these individuals, to confront our preconceived ideas with the reality captured on film. His thematic series are just as striking: it's this raw reality that shocks and disturbs.
