Once upon a time...

A Collection of Stories!

To mark the 25 years of existence of its collection, the Mudam invites you to see the works in its collection in a new light. Or rather, hear it told in a new light, because the artist-storyteller Luisa Bevilacqua will lead you into a world of stories, immersing young and old in a perceptive, playful performance that will enable them to look at the artworks with fresh eyes.

Une collection, beaucoup d’histoires !
