La Vie simple – Simplement la vie / Songs of Alienation

FROM 07 OCTOBER 2017 TO 02 APRIL 2018 - 11.00 AM TO 6.00 PM

Bringing together a selection of works by contemporary and historical artists, this autumn’s collective exhibition spotlights our conceptions of a life of simplicity. In a wealth of free associations, it explores the fantasies and waves of nostalgia conjured by its very title, La Vie simple – Simplement la vie (“The Simple Life – Simply Life”).
