Founding Myths. Inaugural exhibition of the Petite Galerie
What is a myth? And how are they portrayed? How are myths passed on to us? How have artists appropriated them? Told, sung, written, and illustrated, myths are a part of all cultures and civilizations, including contemporary popular culture.
Presented in the Petite Galerie throughout the school year, the exhibition “Founding Myths” tells how illustrators, sculptors, painters, puppeteers, filmmakers, and musicians around the world have drawn inspiration from myths, given them form, and brought them to life.
In its desire to make art open to all, the Louvre provides the keys to answer these questions in the Petite Galerie.
