Current exhibition

Tree Art

8 February - 16 May 2020

As of 2020, the museum has decided to regularly renew the works on display. 

Every year, a group of inhabitants from the region will be invited to design their own exhibition so as to gain more varied points of view and more discoveries. This new approach will bring works in storage - and therefore less often on display - out to be admired by the public. 

For this first exhibition, we have handed over the reins to six agents from the Brest Métropole Parks and Gardens Department whose creativity and attention to visual details had been noticed, particularly in the design of the autumnal decorations.

The aim was not to select works based on a set historic or aesthetic framework, but rather to demonstrate that many artists have been inspired by trees throughout the centuries.

The theme of trees was chosen in line with current scientific focuses and the numerous publications discussing their particular intelligence. It echoes the work by Alexandre Hollan, La Grande Roue [Ferris Wheel] (2011), gifted by the artist in 2018.
