Les Elles des Jeux : Tennis Forever, Camille Holtz

Hors-les-murs : Musée National du Sport, Stade Allianz Riviera, 6 allée Camille Muffat, 06200 Nice

Presented for the first time as part of the Les Elles des Jeux exhibition at the Musée National du Sport in Nice, artist Camille Holtz's photographic series is the fruit of an immersion residency at the heart of the 23rd edition of the Open international junior clay-court tennis tournament. The tournament takes place over three stages in Cap d'Ail, Istres and Beaulieu-sur-Mer this spring. By following the daily lives of these young professional athletes, the artist was able to capture the different emotions that run through them.

In partnership with the Musée National du Sport in Nice, the municipalities of Istres and Beaulieu-sur-Mer, and their respective tennis clubs Istres Sport Tennis and Tennis Club de Beaulieu-sur-Mer.

Dances wasted on the grass, Boris Charmatz

Frac Sud is inviting Boris Charmatz, a leading international figure in contemporary dance, to retrace his choreographic research with him, presenting a series of films made along the way with two accomplices, Aldo Lee and César Vayssié.

The exhibition, Danses gâchées dans l'herbe (Dances Spoilt on the Grass), takes visitors on an original 'museum' journey through the abundant artistic work of this artist-thinker, through six films made between 1999 and 2023.
