“Fly me to the moon” at the Grand Palais

#PARIS “The Moon” is the new exhibition of the Galeries nationales du Grand Palais. The celebration of the 50th anniversary of man’s first steps on the moon is an opportunity to take a look at man’s long-standing relationship with the familiar astral body, through works of art that show the multiple facets of this relationship. In 4 sections, the exhibition explores the representations of the three faces of the moon, or its three moods: soft, unpredictable or disturbing. The last section shows how the moon was considered a neighbouring divinity in human form.

From April 3 to July 22, 2019
