2. Art exhibition: Enfers et fantômes d’Asie (Hell and ghost of Asia) at Quai Branly museum 10 of April -15 of July 2018
If you want to discover the Asian culture and immerse yourself in the ghost stories which participate in the creation of it, go to the new exhibition of the Quai Branly until July 15th!
Go to meet the ghosts of Asia and discover how cinema, visual arts, theatre and literature have seized these ghost stories to make real works borrowed from Asian culture. The route of the exhibition is constructed so as to make you browse all the stories and legends with the help of various visual aids that will sometimes make you shudder. The museum’s cinema room is also in the colours of the exhibition and offers retrospectives of films related to this exhibition!
