PINONC
Description: 
Pierre Pinoncelli, dressed in plain white clothes, a heart and the word Love sprayed on his chest, his face and neck hidden by a death mask, spray paints in red and black, “Viva la revolución!” on a large blank canvas. He turns towards the audience and raises his fist, face lowered.

A wreath of flowers is placed at the foot of the platform on which he stands. This day signifies both the last exhibit of the Musée Rétif before it closes and, according to Alexandre de la Salle (gallery owner, historical theorist from the School of Nice, and organizer of the exhibit), the end of a movement: “Pierre Pinoncelli is going to hold a sort of event to say: The School of Nice is over! It is what it is, it will live its life, but it can no longer grow! The School is already written in history, but this event will be like a great ring of a gong!” [declaration collected by Laura Caprini for the magazine Le Pays Vençois, NDLR]
