On the first Saturday of the month, admission to the museum is free.
Take the opportunity to visit the exhibition "Vasantha Yogananthan. A Myth of Two Souls" with Chus Diaz Bacchetta, curator of the exhibition.
With the aim of supporting and promoting contemporary institutional creation, the Musée de l’Elysée is presenting the first exhibition of Vasantha Yogananthan’s project A Myth of Two Souls. Born in 1985, a self-taught photographer of French-Tamil origin, Yogananthan belongs to a generation that likes to blur the lines between fiction and reality. This series was inspired by the Ramayana, a fundamental epic poem from Hindu mythology written in Sanskrit somewhere between the 3rd century BCE and the 3rd century CE. Constantly updated, the Ramayana can be seen by Western readers as an invitation to understand India beyond mere exoticism.
Guided tour at 4pm. Free and without registration.
