Real and Imaginary Depictions of the Orient:
January 11–April 2, 2018
a Matter of Gazes
The Lilian Thuram Foundation: Education against Racism and the Musée National Eugène-Delacroix have teamed on an enlightening and atypical exhibition that revitalizes the presentation of works in the museum. Designed here is an unprecedented display of the museum collection dedicated to the ‘Orient’, as understood by Delacroix, and its depiction.
This exhibition highlights the close links existing between artistic representations and our contemporary history, between artworks and the issues at stake in our world. An original visit to the Musée Delacroix has thus been planned, encouraging discussions and debates, as well as promising aesthetic surprises and new discoveries.
Meetings and lectures open to the general public are some of the related events planned around the exhibition and will offer the public a great chance to discuss and look at the works with fresh eyes as well as actively participate.
