This event has ended.

In the early 1970s, Air France commissioned Roger Bezombes, famous for his sculptures and paintings, to create original artworks capturing Air France’s spirit. He produced a series of 16 colorful photo collages that were printed at Atelier Mourlot. These graphic works were executed using lithography, typography, and embossing with metallic inks.

These posters were revolutionary. Inspired by surrealism, they depict concepts rather than destinations and evoke the mysteries and joys of air travel. Far ahead of their time, they were only released by Air France and exhibited for the first time at the Pompidou Museum of Modern Art ten years after their creation.
