Exhibition : Scientifiction, Blake and Mortimer

Musée des arts et métiers
From 26 June 2019 to 5 January 2020, the exhibition “Scientifiction, Blake and Mortimer at the Musée des Arts et Métiers" will enable visitors to discover or rediscover the work of Edgar P. Jacobs.

Born in 1946 but decidedly modern, the iconic Blake and Mortimer are the heroes of adventures that highlight the technical progress of their time, offering an immersion in the ingenious world of their creator.

Accompanied by a guide-lecturer, you will be immersed in an exclusive retrospective (the first in fifteen years!) bringing together a total of more than one hundred original plates and extracts from the works of the creator of the iconic duo. During a surprising tour that focuses on the four elements, the plates will be presented in relation with a collection of over seventy scientific instruments and objects preserved by the Musée des Arts et Métiers.

Creating a link between science and fiction and designed for a diverse audience, this exhibition will be able to be approached in different ways thanks to a surprising scenography and the diversity of the objects that enhance the visit. In addition, the plates on show will be replaced by a new selection in October, offering visitors an alternative version of the exhibition, as well as new opportunities for interpretation.

Whether you are a fan of Blake and Mortimer or a science and technology buff, a fan of original experiences or simply curious, there is no doubt that this exhibition will be a source of surprise and discovery !

Exhibition from 26 June 2019 to 5 January 2020.
