    The study of artistic material is often relegated to the background, as if it were only a means, a necessary support but not a constituent of the work. Yet without material, there is no work, and with a different material, a different work. The aim of this exhibition is to give the material its rightful place in the creative process, through its aesthetic qualities, the difficulty (or otherwise) of taming it, the symbols it embodies, the innovations it gives rise to, right up to contemporary experiments. From the calabash to the reliquary, from the statuette to the oil lamp, the aim is also, and above all, to pay tribute to the virtuosity, ingenuity and even mischievousness of artists and craftsmen, and to the intelligence of the hand.

    A RICH CULTURAL PROGRAMME
    A wide range of activities are planned in conjunction with the exhibition, including hands-on workshops, meetings with craftspeople, tours and family events.

    Exhibition open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 12pm and 2pm to 6pm. Free admission on Sundays.
