The 38th St. Just-le-Martel International Salon of Caricature, Editorial and Gag Cartoons

The International Press and Humor Salon of Saint-Just-Le-Martel, to be held from September 28 to October 6, unveiled the program of its 38th edition.

- The 50th anniversary of the Socialist Party by Jean-Michel Delambre, winner of the "Grand Prix de l'Humour vache 2018" and author of the poster for the 2019 salon.

- Tribute to Gérard Vandenbroucke

The Salon is an idea that was envisioned by Gérard Vandenbroucke and came to life in 1982 in Saint Just. 

Marginal at first, it quickly became very successful: Cabu, Wolinski, Loup, Plantu, or Pétillon became faithful among the faithful, some of them were even real friends of Gerard.

- Steve Bell: 40 years of political cartoons. "Loans, hijackings, pastiches, references ...

Steve Bell's work is dotted with references to emblematic images of various nature and periods (paintings, photographs, drawing) that are part of our artistic and visual heritage.

Steve Bell was born in 1951 in Walthamstow (East London). He began a career as a freelance cartoonist in 1977 and his first drawings were published in newspapers featuring comic books for children and in magazines. In 1981, the editor of the Guardian, hired him to produce a daily comic entitled "If ..." which is still published. In 1990, he was also asked to make occasional political caricature to accompany major news topics. Four years later, he became the cartoonist of the newspaper, which he remains today.

Prestige group exhibitions:

- "Social networks "

A collective exhibition featuring 178 cartoonists committed to freedom of expression, in collaboration with France Cartoons and Le Crayon association.

When I tell myself that I'm related to the entire world, I feel very small.
If I tell myself that the entire world is related to me, I feel a little better.

- "Draw me the war"

Exhibition proposed by Cartooning for Peace.

The exhibition is composed of panels illuminating the major themes of war (warlords, combatants, chemical weapons ...) by the eyes of newspaper cartoonists from 1914 to the present. It questions the cartoonist's place in the conflicts by comparing the role of the cartoonists and journalists of 1914 to those of today.

One day we will be featured in a cartoon exhibition together!
Don't pull my leg, things are bad enough already!

- Scottish Cartoon Art Studio

In June 2016, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, with 17.4 million votes in favor and 16.1 against. However, the nations of the UK were divided; while England and Wales were in the majority to 'Leave', Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to 'Remain'.

Two years ago, Scots voted against leaving the UK, partly motivated by the argument that it would jeopardize their European citizenship. And the people of Northern Ireland understood the consequences of a new hard border between the British province and the Republic of Ireland, an issue that was virtually absent from the general discussion of the question before the vote, but which proved to be the main obstacle to the agreement after.

Cartoon by Peter Brookes

We present a series of Scottish and Northern Irish cartoons that reflect the events of the last three years, the tensions over the UK's internal relations, our position in Europe, and the personalities who tried - and failed until present - to deliver "Brexit".

The exhibition is organized by the Scottish Cartoon Art Studio, which is celebrating its twentieth anniversary this year.

International exhibitions:

- "Trump and Iran" Exhibition and news about the New York Times.

With American cartoonists Pat Bagley, Nate Beeler, Daryl Cagle, Jeff Koterba, Gary McCoy, Rick McKee, Sack Steve, Ed Wexler, Chris Weyant and Adam Zyglis.

Cartoon by Pat Bagley

-"Gagged" Exhibition of British cartoonists on the repression and censorship of cartoonists around the world.

"Repressive governments around the world fear caricaturists. The caricaturists go straight to the point. 
While in the United Kingdom and Europe we generally accept the often exciting performances of our leaders, this is certainly not the case in the rest of the world. 
Here, politicians applaud critical and often insulting drawings of themselves, sometimes even collecting personal collections.
The Cartoonists' Professional Organization [UK] is collaborating with other agencies to try to highlight the plight of persecuted caricaturists. This exhibition seeks to do that. "
