Two floors and around 4000 square meters, here to summarize 100 years of visual experimentation. Optical illusions, movement, distortions, light shows, labyrinths and trick mirrors, symbolizing a common will for the artists : to confuse us and invite us to take part in those unique experiences.

2 / Chagall, between war and peace, at Museum of Luxembourg
Everyone knows Chagall’s wonderful work on the Opéra Garnier ceiling, and his “bride”, admired by Julia Roberts in Notting Hill. However, we know less of his war-influenced pieces, marked by the 1917 Revolution, German Occupation and the rise of Nazism. Through this incredible exhibition you will alternate between a state of appeasement and one of disturbance.
