Contemporary art tours and permanent installations
From 27 May to 20 August, a retrospective of 80 works by Pierre et Gilles, famous for their atypical portraits mixing photography and painting, will take place at the MuMa (Modern Art Museum).
Throughout the city, visitors will come across Julien Berthier's altoviseur, a giant mirror installed on top of the train station, Chiharu Shiota's futuristic installation inside Saint-Joseph Church or Vincent Ganivet's audacious and colorful sculpure displayed on the Quai De Southampton.
Created in 1992, the Japanese garden sealing the twinning of the ports of Le Havre and Osaka is normally closed to the public. For the first time, it will be open throughout the duration of the event for everyone to enjoy its exotic treasures. Echoing this friendship between the two cities, the BaZooka company will create a floating zen temple boasting an underwater observation deck in the midst of the Bassin de la Barre.
Usually unoccupied, the old transatlantic terminal will be open during the summer season, with artistic events taking place during the day and big club nights kicking off once the sun sets.
