    • Miró Rétrospective

      3 OCT 2018 > 4 FEB 2019

      Bringing together nearly 150 works, this retrospective traces the technical and stylistic evolution of the artist. Miró creates from his dreams and opens the door to his poetic universe.

      Miró transformed the world around him with an apparent simplicity of means, whether a symbol, the tracing of a finger or water on paper, a seemingly fragile line on the canvas, a line in the ground fused with fire, or an insignificant object paired with another. He conjured a world full of poetic transformations from these surprising juxtapositions and unusual marriages, restoring enchantment to the world.

      “For me, a painting should be like sparks. It should dazzle you like the beauty of a woman or a poem.”

    • Eblouissante Venise ! Venise les arts et l'Europe au XVIIIe siècle

      26 SEP 2018 - 21 JAN 2019

      Having inherited a multisecular tradition, at the dawn of the 18th century Venetian civilisation dazzled in the visual and decorative arts, music and opera alike. The presence of great talents, such as the painters Piazzetta and Giambattista Tiepolo, the urban landscape painter or vedutista Canaletto and the sculptors Corradini and Brustolon, to name but a few, allowed Venice to cultivate a unique aesthetic and sense of luxury. Music was kept very much alive through creations by composers such as Porpora, Hasse and Vivaldi, performed by world-famous singers, including the castrato Farinelli and the soprano Faustina Bordoni.
      In the Ospedali, poor or orphaned young girls received extensive musical education, and their virtuosity made them famous throughout Europe. In the city, during Carnival, drama and farce were everywhere, and the passion for gambling was given free reign at the ridotto.

      Side note! Macha Makeieff has designed spaces that tell a lively tale of this dazzling Venice and weave a journey of sensations and surprises: echoes of music, dance and drama and regular late-night events for visitors keen to turn back time in the lagoon.
