Planète métisse

To mix or not to mix

Crossing of cultures, colonisation, globalisation, "shock of civilisations"...

About the exhibition

The idea of métissage takes account of the contact between peoples and traditions, of the coexistence of mixed identities, and reflects ways of bridging the gaps between different cultures. The Planète métisse exhibition aims to stimulate the visitor's imagination by juxtaposing objects along the way, from the 15th century to the present day. It analyses the repercussions of European, mainly Iberian, expansion on the other civilisations and the exchange of influences between East and West in the wake of the great expansions, notably the Chinese and Muslim. This exhibition of cross cultural objects and arts highlights the richness of artistic productions stemming from the blending of ways of doing and believing, of creating and designing.
