Nuit des images

Saturday, June 27, 2015

This year, the Nuit des images is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Musée de l’Elysée with innovative and mind-boggling projects! The entire museum comes alive and unleashes itself to celebrate this anniversary with its public.

Did you know that images produce sounds? Come (re)discover the collections through the peculiar vision of the artists who make films and music out of them. Take time to explore the Elysée gardens and its hidden corners that will reveal an installation by Pierre Coulibeuf and photographs taken in situ by students of the CEPV. Have fun with your family and discover the techniques of 19th century photography through activities where you can make your own pinhole camera or a time-lapse photograph.

After the sun sets, among the many projections, the winner of the Prix Elysée will be announced, and the humanist photographer Sabine Weiss, will be honored, before the museum’s façade goes up in flames by virtue of Romain Tardy’s sound and light installation.

Free admission from 3pm on. Full program available on
