Connecting worlds

Connecter les mondes

Globalization has accelerated considerably in recent decades, but it is the expression of a continuum of intercultural exchanges and dialogues. The exhibition Connecting worlds presents a range of art forms, past and present, that know no borders or geographical limits.


While artists, techniques and objects have never ceased to circulate, the history of these exchanges is intertwined with the painful history of conquest and domination. At the same time, the fascination, appropriation and assimilation of other cultures have shaped the outlook and sensibilities of artists and spectators alike.

Against the backdrop of a plural society immersed in globalization, Connecting worlds sheds new light on this artistic dialogue, with a selection of paintings, drawings, installations and videos from the museum’s and the macLYON’s collections, enriched by exceptional loans.
