    Exhibition : Récits naturels
    May 30, 2021 to October 3, 2021

    Natural Stories is the second part of a cycle of three carte blanche exhibitions that the curator has developed around the intersecting representations of nature and history. In this perspective, the project follows the exhibition Through the Forest that was first presented at MAC LAU in the fall of 2018. 

    Prompted by a reflection on the narrative and conceptual extensions of natural history, the exhibition intends to question how our ways of thinking and imaging nature act as reflections of our cultural, community, social and sensory identities. 

    Artists: Maryse Goudreau, Caroline Monnet, Celia Perrin Sidarous, Joseph Tisiga, Sally Tisiga and the duo Sarah Wendt and Pascal Dufaux.

    Schedule :

    • Wednesday,  1 p.m. to 5 p.m. 
    • Thursday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. 
    • Sunday, noon to 4 p.m.
