Her idea: to increase “ the accessibility and visibility of contemporary art for children and adults alike says Loli, MuMo mediator for the mUmotopia tour as part of the 6th edition of Lille3000, Utopia. This version 2.0 mobile museum, designed by Matali Crassetwill explore the roads of the Lille metropolis until August 23.

Composed of the collections of the Regional Funds for Contemporary Art (FRAC) and the National Center for Plastic Arts (CNAP), this colorful exhibition brings together both painting than photography, sculpture or design. This mix appeals to young and old. Paul, who came with other children from the social and cultural center of the city, had already studied contemporary art at school. That doesn’t stop him from loving the concept: I think it’s good because it’s accessible everywhere, in several cities “. Anne is present with Margaux, Louise and Robin. ” As a parent, I accompany my children but I also discover at the same time as them. The young audience’s favorite work? Ron Ron by Marion Baruche, a work all in fur at the crossroads of a cat and a pouf. And, unlike other works, you can touch it! This detail is unanimous with children, some can not even get away from it…

The MuMo will make a stop on May 28 in Lompret and this summer in the other cities of the MEL.
