From April 28 to October 2, 2022, the MUba Eugène Leroy presents Eugène Leroy. À contre-jour , an exhibition labeled of national interest by the Ministry of Culture. Celebrating the artist from Tourcoing (1910-2000), the exhibition explores two complementary approaches: one places him in the artistic landscape of the 20th century, the other questions his contemporaneity in the face of today's creations. This exhibition seeks to highlight the artist in an unexpected way, to reveal him in a new way, like backlighting, a principle particularly appreciated by Leroy.
After the Leroy donation made in 2009, the Eugène Leroy exhibitions . Centenary Exhibition (2010) and Georg Baselitz-Eugène Leroy . The story and the condensation (2013), the museum asserts itself through this event as the place of reference on the artist, on a regional, national and international scale.
