We always turn our backs to the setting sun

"We Always Turn Our Back to the Setting Sun" borrows its title from a line of "The Phoenix", by French poet Paul Éluard. Continuing since last year’s Nuit Blanche is curator Vincent Romagny, who challenges contemporary artists in this collaborative exhibition. Artists Nicolas Chardon, Matthieu Cossé, Camila Oliveira Fairclough, and Emmanuel van der Meulen have been called on to create new works reflecting the aesthetic, formal and technical concerns of the art of the kimono. As the title of the exhibition describes, these French artists turn their backs to the setting sun, and look at Japan. You can see the different approaches that each artist takes in the collaboration in kimono and contemporary design.

Exhibition Period: 9/17-11/27 (9:30-18:00)
*Open until 21:00 only on 10/1 (Sat), Closed every Wednesday
