How can these works invite you to imagine the rhythms and music that animate them? Read more

Enac (École Nationale d’Aviation Civile)
Between balance and purity, unity and harmony, white is of all symbols to the point of holding for some a divine and miraculous reach. No color, expression of emptiness, it holds a special place in the history of art. Malevitch made it a powerful symbol of supremacism with his famous White Square on a white background from 1918, but many others did him honor throughout the 20th century ... Read more

The exhibition proposes an original dialogue between works that cross questions of architecture in relation to the body and the poetic power of colours. Read more

This exhibition offers a real face-to-face encounter through a selection of works from the collection, compared with the menhir statues conserved in the museum.
