The second in a three-year series of exhibitions dedicated to new audiences, In the Backcountry of Nicolas is one of few contemporary art exhibitions designed for youth. Although conceived for children aged 7 to 10, this exhibition will interest the young and the not so young. Visitors are invited to explore the dreamlike universe of Nicolas, a young boy who lives in the fictional town of Saint-Barreau-les- Berçantes. Accompanied by their parents or grandparents, children can enjoy drawings, sculptures, videos and installations while stopping to participate in interactive activities. Playful and dynamic, the exhibition raises questions about geography, history, society and heritage.
