Theme 2016 : «  The Other »

Multidisciplinary group exhibition on the theme selected for 2016 is "The Other ". "We are all the other someone " - different or complementary , allowed or dismissed , which is the other face or inside ourselves? Is it our own unknown and mysterious unconscious, an alter ego or soul mate reflection of us, or the unknown foreigner who applies our eyes ? Eleven artistic sensibilities , speaking in paintings , collages, prints , sculptures and ceramics invite you to share their approaches to the Other - and we in front of the other. The Simiane Primary School joined the discussion through collective work of his students.
