Curiosities is an exhibition for the family intended especially for school-age children 6 years old and over.

The exhibition is a collaborative endeavour with Vicky Sabourin, artist. For the Manif d'art 8 event, the Family Gallery features works tailored to children by an artist who participates in the Biennial.

Vicky Sabourin’s artistic universe revolves around natural history, artefacts and curio cabinets. The Family Gallery houses an immersive exhibition consisting of showcases and cabinets, and introduces children to a diorama that enables them to be an active part of it and to play inside the installation. The nocturnal ambiance gives children the impression that they are visiting a forest at night and are entering the artist’s world that is not unlike the realm of Grimms’ fairy tales.
