Discover the “Living Forms” (Formes Vivantes) exhibition at the Musée de Sèvres.

As part of the “Living Forms” exhibition, the Musée National de Céramique (National Ceramics Museum) has assembled almost 350 works spanning from the Renaissance to the present. We are partners of this exhibition, which can be enjoyed up until 7 May 2023.

The “Living Forms” exhibition highlights the bonds between the mineral world stemming from the earth and the living world of organic life, animals, plants. Some 350 works, ceramics dating from the Renaissance to the present, are compared and put into perspective with paintings, precious metal artefacts and scientific objects. Through these, the exhibition questions our own relationship to living beings. This is the ideal opportunity to (re)discover a medium deeply rooted in its time, that continues, today more than ever, to inspire contemporary artists such as Giuseppe Penone, Johan Creten and Nadège Mouyssinat. Initially designed by the Musée National Adrien Dubouché in Limoges in 2019, its transfer to the Musée de Sèvres has given this exhibition a new lease of life.
