Musée Réattu

Offers thematic exhibitions and regularly renews the works exposed, with the aim of discovering art differently

The museum has been collecting photography since the 1960's (4000 works to date), has received gifts from exceptional artists (Picasso, with 57 drawings and two paintings, Alechinsky...), emphasizes sculpture (Germaine Richier, Toni Grand...), and created in 2008 a listening chamber for sound art. A site of convergences, the museum places orders directly with artists, mixes techniques, offers thematic exhibitions and regularly renews the works exposed, with the aim of discovering art differently.
