MEISSEN – PORCELAIN FOLLIES @ Musée Ariana

This exhibition is a chance to immerse yourself in the great adventure of the discovery of porcelain in Europe.

‘SILENCE, WE PREACH!’ – MIR EXHIBITION @ Musée International de la Réforme
Feb 13 @ 10:00 am – Aug 30 @ 5:00 pm
'SILENCE, WE PREACH!' - MIR EXHIBITION @ Musée International de la Réforme

Famous film directors have used these Protestant priests as dramatic resources and fascinating characters, and the MIR screens an original montage of about twenty minutes made up of eight extracts from classic films.  Pastors are seen through the lens of directors such as Michael Haneke, Charlie Chaplin, Alain Resnais and John Huston.  Alongside, five gowns designed by Albertine will also be displayed in the Salon. They reflect the typology listed by French theologian André Gounelle, which underlines the specific ways ministers carry out their mission: as a Prophet, a Shepherd, a Leader, a Spiritual Director or a Priest.

Tuesday to Sunday: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm
Closed on Monday

FRED BOISSONNAS AND THE MEDITERRANEAN – A PHOTOGRAPHIC ODYSSEY @ Musée Rath
Apr 26 @ 11:00 am – Jul 26 @ 6:00 pm
FRED BOISSONNAS AND THE MEDITERRANEAN - A PHOTOGRAPHIC ODYSSEY @ Musée Rath

The exhibition is dedicated to the works of the most prolific member of the “Boissonnas dynasty”, Fred Boissonnas (1858 – 1946). It sheds light on a whole aspect of his career that is both underappreciated and crucial: his journeys on the Mediterranean Sea, which he spent the first three decades of the 20th century roaming in search of light, of the Great Greece and free Egypt, of Homeric settings and Biblical landscapes.

Most of his photographs, presented here for the first time, are part of bequeathed collections now owned by the Bibliothèque de Genève. Both poetic and mesmerising, this exhibition also attempts to provide insight into the ambivalent and passionate relationship between Europe and the Mediterranean.
