Description

CURRENT EXHIBITION:

ILLUSIONS: THE ART OF MAGIC

26 May 2017 – 21 January 2018

The exhibition will take on the period of magic shows’ golden age and its advertising and promotional mechanisms that relied on phantasmagoric imagery. A selection of breathtaking posters, mostly dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, will retrace the social history of this still active phenomenon. These posters, halfway between art and advertisement, are magnificent, large format chromolithographs that immortalise the magicians and the acts that marked the world of modern magic.

THE TOPSY-TURVY STORYLAND

Until March 18 2018

Experience the amazing universe of the fairy tales that have continued to enchant generation after generation: Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Little Mermaid and Cinderella. These stories have been reinterpreted in an immersive and fun space, where young visitors can roam a world turned upside down by a spell cast by an evil fairy godmother who has mixed up the characters and objects from different fairy tales—and caused quite a conundrum in the process!
