The designs of Robert Crumb appeared for the first time in France in the 70s, with the publishing of the magazine Actuel; they are still very present in the memories of almost two generations. With a unique and recognizable style, the prolific artist doesn’t hesitate to cross the limits of comics. The MAM dedicates him a chronological retrospective that studies his deepest obsessions: love, hate, fear of women and music. This pioneer of underground comics and mythic figure of American counterculture made people discover the darkness and other absurdities of our modern world, all while keeping a lot of humor. The artist will even make fun of himself by particularly revealing his relationships with women. There’s no doubt you’ll come out of the exhibition with thought balloons in your head!
