Le programme

WORKSHOPS

Ages 0 to 2 years

WORKSHOP: “Floating Garden”

Saturday and Sunday at 10.15 a.m., 11.15 a.m., 12.15 a.m., 2.15 p.m., 3.15 p.m., 4.15 p.m. and 5.15 p.m.

Koralie is fascinated by nature, by the infinitely large effect that a landscape with infinitely small details can create, like the observation of phyllotaxis, nature’s very consistent way of arranging the leaves on the twig of a tree or the stem of a plant. This immersive, three-dimensional space is for exploring, a place where shapes, materials and colours coexist: small mountains, large leaves, structures, soft, hard, shiny components, that let little ones surround themselves in this imaginary nature and handle the smallest details.

“BINGO!” PLAY AREA

CENTRAL TERRACE - FONDATION

Saturday and Sunday nonstop from 10.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. and 2.00 to 6.00 p.m.

In this colourful, geometric play space, youngsters and their parents are guided in the world of artist Alice Guillier’s graphic composition: a set of giant, soft, flexible dominoes lies on the floor to be explored in endless ways, through observation, handling, play or rest. A memory to compose, recompose and slide into place. Triangles and squares, lines and colours, the elements intersect, combine and join together for an immersive visit in an environment that changes as the pieces are moved, mixed and matched.

WORKSHOP: “Resources”

JARDIN D'ACCLIMATATION

Around the "Ellsworth Kelly. Shapes and Colours, 1949-2015" and "Matisse: The Red Studio" exhibitions

Saturday and Sunday nonstop from 10.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. and 2.00 to 6.00 p.m.

Paper weaving joins, constructs and assembles while remaining supple. Working with volumes, creating gently curved, repetitive shapes, are reminiscent of the poetry of Frank Gehry's building, free, floating and flexible.
With colourful elements of past exhibitions and architecture, designer Flora Koel’s workshop echoes the artists on display in the mixture of colours and infinite exploration of shapes: the red of Matisse, the blue of Kelly and the green of the Family Festival. 

Ages 4 to 12

WORKSHOP: “CoColor”

JARDIN D'ACCLIMATATION

Saturday and Sunday nonstop from 10.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. and 2.00 to 6.00 p.m.

Discover CoColor, the method created by painter Rosy Lamb, inspired by her practice of mixing oil paints. Accept the artist’s challenges: Can you make Ellsworth Kelly’s rainbow using just three coloured pencils? How about creating the true shade of red you see in Matisse's The Red Studio?

Sunday at 12.45 a.m. and 2.00 p.m.

Ekla! came to be when four artists joined forces to merge their three disciplines: folded paper, animation and electronic music. Imagine a larger-than-life pop-up book onto which this adventure is projected, with an exciting soundtrack, played live.
The electronic music duo Turnsteak explores immersive and astounding graphic worlds, taking us inside a magical book. Each page reveals paper sculptures, inhabited by beings of shadow and light and colourful architecture.
In a display that is both poetic and experimental, watch the birth of a single line on an empty space, which then evolves, morphs and dances until it leaves the frame. From that point on, it leads us down many paths through our imaginations.

Originally from the French city of Saintes, François Marry moved to Bristol, England, in 2003, where he began his musical journey. He first worked solo, then enlisted several French friends and together they formed the group Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains, whose first album – The People To Forget – was released in 2005. The group attracted increasing attention, finally earning broad international recognition by joining the ranks of the illustrious English label Domino starting with the album E Volo Love (2011). Next to be released were the albums Piano Ombre (2014), Solide Mirage (2017) and Banane Bleue (2021). In 2018, François Marry – under the pseudonym Frànçois Atlas – released Les Fleurs du Mal, a solo album transposing Baudelaire's famous poetic collection into music.
