Comme un parfum d’aventure (i.e. like a smell of adventure) until 18 July 2021

Comme un parfum d'aventure is inspired by the unprecedented experience of lockdown, which simultaneously affected the majority of the Earth’s population!
Featuring items from the collections at MAC and the Musée des Beaux-Arts, and works borrowed or created specially by artists in France, the exhibition is intended as an investigation into travel through space and time, and its consequences.

Edi Dubien, l’homme aux mille natures (i.e. Edi Dubien, the man of a thousand natures) until 11 April 2021

This is the first museum exhibition by this self-taught artist, whose highly-sensitive work delicately awakens your emotions, doubts, and expectations, and where childhood, adolescence and nature are omnipresent.

300 drawings, paintings, sculptures and installations.

Isabelle, our editor born and bred in Lyon! She was born in Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon in fact, studied in Lyon and now lives here. Territorial? Absolutely not! She loves travelling, widening her horizons, meeting new people and enjoys a change of scenery (without snow, if possible). Isabelle is curious and a people person, two attributes that often go hand in hand! Her favourite colour is green and her motto "a day without laughter is a day wasted!"
