Exhibition "Mediterraneans" - MP2013 Place de la Joliette, boulevard du Littoral 13002 Marseille fr

From Yesterday’s Cities to Today’s Men

In January, the J1 hangar—a landmark of the Capital—will inaugurate its vast expanse that opens onto the sea with a gigantic «fictional exhibition», with a modern Ulysses as guide. The exhibition includes more than 170 works of art spanning the treasures of the Mediterranean heritage as well as contemporary creations and audio-visual installations.

Ulysses takes visitors on an incredible journey through time, from the era of the Trojan wars to the twentyfirst century, following an 11-stage itinerary that stops in 11 legendary ports including Athens, Alexandria, Venice, Istanbul and Marseille.

A series of events showcasing Mediterranean cultural diversity have been organised alongside the exhibition (including films, short films, music, singing, performances, story-telling and readings).
