Long Live the King!
New exhibition of the collection of ancient Egyptian art

Egypt's emblematic Pharaoh figures reigned as kings and gods. Revered as living Horus forms, they were said to uphold world order (Maat): indeed, the Egyptians feared their absence would incite a return to chaos.

As high priests, army commanders, judges and senior administrators, the Pharaohs succeeded each other for nearly 3000 years.

However, frequently they would delegate some of their numerous powers to priests and counselors from among their courtesans. Often, too, the women in their circle took advantage of their influence, thus attaining the highest rungs of power themselves. Visitors will enjoy an insider view of many an illustrious sovereign.

Audrey Eller, Egyptologist and scientific collaborator of the mudac for the collection Jacques-Edouard Berger.

Chromatic

Colour is not an intrinsic property of matter but the result of the reflection or refraction of light by the objects that surround us. It is thus the result of the interaction between light and matter. Coloured glass absorbs certain wavelengths of white light and then reflects a certain light spectrum, recreating in the viewer's eye the colour chosen by the artist.

Chromatic celebrates colour through mudac's contemporary glass collection by prsenting a selection of pieces in attractive hues.

The exhibits also reveal a rich array of shapes and techniques, as well as the work of well-known glass makers. Inspired by the colour wheel of the Swiss painter and teacher Johannes Itten, the exhibition immerses visitors into a colourful sensory universe. Contrast, complementarity and primary colour, hot and cold, are some of the themes of this colourful exhibition. 

Mind your eyes, coulour ahead!

The world of Hergé
From advertising to Tintin

For the second time, mudac partners with BDFIL festival and welcomes Hergé as its guest of honour. For this exhibition, mudac worked in collaboration with the Hergé Museum in Louvain-la-Neuve, creator of the project. Featuring original drawings, archives, photographs and unpublished work, the exhibition revisits the world of the master of line drawing and reveals it in all its depth.

The exhibition, the first of its kind to be dedicated to Hergé in Switzerland and aimed at a public ranging "from 7 to 77 years of age", will also present lesser-known facets of this all-round genius who was an illustrator, cartoonist, poster designer as well as a graphic designer. Original drawings and artefacts will show, if it's still necessary, that Hergé's work is worthy of being shown in a museum as a pioneer of comics worldwide but also as a witness to the history of the 20th century.
