Visits Creative workshops

Around the permanent collection and exhibition Light Parade!
february 24 to May 27, 2024

This winter, the museum is decked out in its finest finery with the presentation of original costume pieces,directly inspired by the work of Fernand Léger. Over-size coats with graphic and figurative compositions, ceremonial headdresses and masks borrowed from African cosmogony and jazz spirit, shirts and capes with geometric and abstract motifs, will make up this flamboyant haute-couture show. The fruit of the know-how and research work of the DN MADE students, the textile pieces, their preparatory sketches and models will propose an unprecedented dialogue with a selection of Fernand Léger paintings and drawings, from the museum's collection, having in common the reinvention of the language of lines and colors.

An exhibition organized as part of a partnership initiated in 2022 with the DN MADE (Diplôme National des Métiers d'Arts et du Design) mention spectacle spécialité costumes de scène, from Lycée Les Coteaux, in Cannes. Find out more about Léger Défilé !
