MuMo unveils its new artistic journey in Hauts-de-France: «Être(s) Vivant(s)»

Friday, May 3, 2023, it is in Fourmies, in the North, that a new exhibition of the Centre Pompidou was inaugurated: «Living Beings» will criss-cross the Hauts-de-France aboard the museum-truck: the MuMo - Mobile Museum.

The exhibition «Être(s) vivant(s)», imagined by Laure Chauvelot, curator at the Centre Pompidou, brings together 25 works, all from the collection of the Musée national d'art moderne, and testifies to the power of the cosmic imagination and the ability of artists to reinvent it, since the beginnings of abstraction at the beginning of the 20the century until the most recent hybridizations between human and non-human.

The workshops, which complement the visits to the MuMo, will mobilize the body and the movement to combine artistic practice and sports practice and will promote the encounter with the works of
the artists.

The Mobile Museum is also part of the Cultural Olympiad, offering travelling exhibitions combining sport and contemporary art. These mobile exhibitions are mainly intended for populations far from the Olympic and Paralympic Games in rural and peri-urban areas.

Hand in hand with the Ministry of Sports and the Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Ministry of Culture and the DRAC in the regions have therefore promoted and supported the Cultural Olympiad, original programming to highlight all that culture and sport have in common.

In the Hauts-de-France, about forty meetings, on the route of the Flame with the flaming Marching Bands, or in cultural places or public space will bring the Cultural Olympiad to life.
