“Obsessions” is an exhibition that will take the visitor on a journey through the universe of artists’ obsessions.

The exhibition will present each of these intimate worlds in a small nave to recreate an intense atmosphere. The visitor will delight in discovering these while weaving through a labyrinth designed by the “Superstructure” collective. Hundreds of amusing, figurative and abstract works, big and small, will make up a journey full of surprises.

Open Skies

Open Skies is an exhibition that challenges the ever-growing call for transparency in society.Seven artists delve into our public and private spaces of so-called freedom. The exhibition addresses the issue through artists who aim to escape from the domination of the “like” button, to undo the reductive statement of intent.
