This first retrospective by Juliette Roche aims to make known this little-known figure of the artistic avant-gardes who synthesizes in her work the aesthetic evolutions of the beginning of the 20th century. The exhibition seeks to identify the aesthetic evolution, the context and the personality of a figure involved in the artistic communities of the time. Juliette Roche's artistic trajectory will be illuminated by the unprecedented presentation of her personal archives. The project is accompanied by a scientific catalog edited by Christian Briend, curator and head of the Modern Collections Department at the National Museum of Modern Art / Center Georges Pompidou. The edition aims to be a reference work on the work of Juliette Roche. Abundantly illustrated by reproductions of the artist's works and personal archives, it is structured by four articles reporting on research on the subject and the testimony of curator Pierre Georgel. The iconographic notebook is punctuated by notices devoted to the major typologies of its production. An illustrated biography, a bibliography and the list of exhibitions in which the artist has participated complete the set. Little exhibited during the artist's lifetime, eclipsed by the recognition of her husband, the cubist Albert Gleizes, Juliette Roche's production mixes styles. A pupil of the painter Maurice Denis at the Ranson Academy, she inherits the simple forms, the decorative character and the symbolist universe of the Nabis group. Her frequentation of the Cubists of Puteaux led her to punctuate her constructions in geometric lines. In New York during World War I, she participated in the Dada group with Marcel Duchamp and Francis Picabia. These encounters introduce the unusual and irony into his gaze. She thus renews the traditional genres of painting by a great freedom of tone. Portraits, self-portraits, landscapes of Ardèche,
