Unaccompanied tour of the exhibition of the Musée des arts et métiers

Musée des arts et métiers
Unaccompanied tour with speaking fee (tickets not included)

From 26 June 2019 to January 5 2020, the Musée des Arts et Métiers will propose "Scientifiction, Blake and Mortimer at the Musée des Arts et Métiers” in its temporary exhibition area.

This exhibition will be the first retrospective of the famous comic series by Edgard P. Jacobs in over fifteen years, but will also spotlight highly original artistic choices that will make this a must-see event.

The surprising visitor trail will lead you on a discovery of the world of the founder of the series: more than a simple chronological presentation of his work, this exhibition will allow visitors to understand the visionary genius of Edgar P. Jacobs. Thus, the exhibition will propose a correspondence between the fictional world of the author and the scientific and technical progress of his time. Original works (plates, drawings, etc.) by the artist will be presented along with a selection of exceptional objects from the reserve collection of the Musée des Arts et Métiers.

During a non-linear tour that enables countless possible interpretations, the spaces will be organised around the four elements. Through their different prisms, these spaces will enable visitors to approach the relationship between fiction and reality via a constant dialogue between elements belonging to these two worlds. In addition, the plates on show will be replaced in October 2019, offering visitors new ways to discover and interpret the exhibition.

This visit will thus enable you to understand just how surprisingly contemporary the vision of Edgar P. Jacobs was and to discover what makes Blake and Mortimer one of the most famous sagas in the world of comic books.

Exhibition from 26 June 2019 to 5 January 2020.
