Pour l'amour de l'Antique: en bout avec la Renaissance/ hommage à Paul Veyne From 28 June to 1 October 2023
Paying tribute to Paul Veyne, the exhibition highlights a permanent love of the Antique through a rich journey of works from all eras, exceptional loans, commissions to artists, in two historical monuments on a rhizomatic mode of cabinet of curiosities and imaginary museum: an ancient polyphonic, kaleidoscopic and humanist declined under all its genres.
Artworks by: Alfons Alt Louise Bourgeois Christo & Jeanne Claude Pascal Convert Julien Drach Ernest Pignon Ernest Sarah Espeute Audrey Guttman Harry Guyaert Dorian Guo François Halard Talin Hazbar Marion & Hervé Host Fabrice Hyber Emeric Lhuisset Leo Nataaf Pascal Navarro Giulio Paolini Pablo Picasso Anne and Patrick Poiriers Lee Ufan Elsa Sahal Cy Twombly Brankiça Zilović
