Often I see advertising for upcoming exhibitions at the major art museums and galleries in this region, but sometimes the best exhibitions fall under our noses and pass by unnoticed.
Here are 3 Exhibitions that I highly recommend you find time to see – they may not be part of the goliath that reigns in Nice with the MAMAC, Musée des BeauxArts, Musée Matisse or Musée National Marc Chagall but they are just as worthy:
- Le Corbusier at the Picasso Museum in Antibes : Le Jeu du Dessin
On until 24 January so get in quick for the final days!
The exhibition is dedicated to his graphic work and the pieces exhibited here were, for the most part, little or never exposed. These designs all come from the Fondation Le Corbusier, which holds most of the collection, about 6500 works. The collection shows how Le Corbusier in the arts also participated in the modernity of the twentieth century.
Musée Picasso’s autumn/winter hours : Open every day except Monday from 10h to 12h and 14h to 18h.
Tickets: full price €6 – half price €3.
Free entrance for persons with reduced mobility or children under 18 years
2. Salvador Dali at Espace Miramar in Cannes : Aux Frontières du Réel
Until 14 February
Based on a selection of Salvador Dalí prints from the collection of Jean Ferrero, the exhibition offers an approach to real borders that Dalí was able to stretch in his work by blurring lines between dreams and reality.
Espace Miramar is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10h to 13h and 14h to 18h.
Tickets: full price €6 – half price €3. Cannes Pass Expo is a special price where you can see the Dali exhibition here at Espace Miramar and the Chagall exhibition at Malmaison for €8
3. Marc Chagall at La Malmaison in Cannes : Les Couleurs de la Vie
Until 24 April
Featuring more than 200 prints, on loan from the collector Castor Seibel they allow visitors to discover the world of the painter whose mastery of colour combined with the poetic themes of his work are an essential part of the history of engraving of the twentieth century. Found throughout the exhibits are themes that are dear to him: the mythology around the Bible, his love for his first wife Bella or Russian landscapes of his native village.
Centre d’art La Malmaison is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10h to 13h and 14h to 18h.
Tickets: full price €6 – half price €3. Cannes Pass Expo is a special price where you can see this exhibition as well as the Dali exhibition at Espace Miramar for €8.
