"Pas sommeil"
Exhibit Exporama

Offer included

Exporama is the summer highlight for contemporary art in Rennes. The Musée des Beaux-Arts, the Champs Libres and the Frac Bretagne have put together a large-scale collective exhibition entitled “Pas sommeil. La fête dans tous ses états” (“No sleep. Festivities in all their forms”). It is a triple exhibition on how different artists understand the concept of festivities.
The Citypass includes free entry to all three iconic exhibitions during its validity period.

Musée des

At the Musée des Beaux-Arts, the temporary exhibition invites you to plunge into the universe of festivities through installations and videos. Piotr Uklański’s installation entitled Dancing Nazis, on loan from the Pinault Collection, takes over the patio with its gigantic dancefloor. Dance also takes pride of place in a video by Rineke Dijkstra, an installation by Marina Abramović and a silkscreen print by Keith Haring.
Entry to the permanent collection is free: Veronese, Rubens, Picasso, Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, Rembrandt, and more – the greatest artists will charm you. Since 1794, the collection of the Rennes Musée des Beaux-Arts has continued to grow, offering a comprehensive overview of art history from Antiquity to the present day. Be wowed by Gustave Caillebotte’s impressionism, ‘The Tiger Hunt’ by Rubens and ‘The Newborn Child’ by Georges De la Tour. 


At the Champs Libres, an installation by William Kentridge takes over the Anita Conti room by deploying a procession as poetic as it is political. The exhibition can be explored further in the library and in the Musée de Bretagne, with a series of photographs by Julie Hascoët and Mark Neville. 

A hub dedicated to life and knowledge, designed by the architect Christian de Portzamparc, the Champs Libres brings together three establishments with aims that complement each other: the Musée de Bretagne, the Espace des Sciences and the Bibliothèque Métropolitaine. 

FRAC Bretagne.

At the Frac Bretagne, the party is in full swing through various rhythms, from the hushed intimacy of a foxtrot step to unbridled Brazilian samba and techno parties. A spontaneous festive gathering organised by Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster can be found alongside a Madonna concert immortalised by Andreas Gursky, while the night-life extravagance and the political, social and cultural demands that give meaning to partying are evident in the series of photographs by Nan Goldin and Diane Arbus.
Whether you’re just curious or an expert, you will enjoy the collection of contemporary works at the Frac Bretagne, which will catch your eye and introduce you to artists from diverse backgrounds. The Frac Bretagne advocates openness to all forms of contemporary creation and to all audiences.
