Le théâtre des objets de Daniel Spoerri

Venue : Second floor

For the first time, the MAMAC is devoting an exhibition to the artist Daniel Spoerri, a member of the New Realism movement, close to Fluxus and initiator of Eat Art. Entitled The Theatre of Objects, this astonishing project shows the way in which the artist deals with chance, the anecdotal and the derisory, with emotion as his starting point. The exhibition thus takes the form of a stroll as surprising and fascinating as that of a funfair with its traps and traps, its cabinets of curiosities and its banquets.

Sunday 13 February from 12 to 14h00 :
"À table!" Picnic swap: open to all those who come with a picnic bag with their phone number on it. The bags are then exchanged, allowing new encounters both gustatory and human.

Friday 25 February at 7pm :
"À table! Banquet of Homonyms": performed by students from the Lycée Pasteur, the Lycée Apollinaire and the Collège du Parc Impérial; menu design and performance presentation Reserved for homonyms of famous people, real or fictional.

Tuesday 1 March at 7pm :
"At the table! The eggs are done, nothing goes anymore": a banquet under the sign of the game interpreted by the students of the Lycée des métiers Hôtellerie-Tourisme Paul Augier.

Sunday 27 March from 3 to 5 pm :
"Eat Spoerri and then flute! Spoerri Comestible. A snack created by Méla Patisserie Vivante where you can taste cakes inspired by Daniel Spoerri's art, followed by a performance by Fils de flûte who transforms everyday objects into musical instruments.

Isa Melsheimer. Compost

Venue : Contemporary gallery

In her work, the artist Isa Melsheimer questions modern architecture as well as our natural environment. Sculptures, installations, paintings and textiles form a dreamlike landscape in the gallery. For the MAMAC, she offers a humorous and fictional look at the imagery of the Côte d'Azur and the transformation of its landscape. For her exhibition at the MAMAC, the artist has immersed herself in the rich history of the Côte d'Azur, a territory of experimentation in modern architecture which today leaves a legacy of villas, sometimes unsuspected, nestled in the heart of the hills and palm trees.
