Folklore

Exhibitions
From
until
From the beginnings of modern art to the most contemporary art, the exhibition traces the sometimes ambiguous relationships that artists have with folklore. Far from the clichés of an old-fashioned and artificial retrospective, they have been able to find in tales, legends, costumes, rituals and traditions, a source of inspiration, a regenerative power for art, as well as an object of critical analysis. The exhibition is the encounter between art history and the history of the human sciences, portraying artists - folklorists.
The exhibition is designed and organized by the Pompidou-Metz Centre in partnership with the MuCem. Museum of Civilizations of Europe and of the Mediterranean.
