Run to the museum!

On April 16 at 10 a.m., the totally transformed Musée d'Art Moderne - Collections Nationales Pierre et Denise Lévy opens its doors to the public.

Admission to the museum will be free for all from April 16 to May 12, 2024!

After several years of closure and an initial renovation phase, the Musée d'Art Moderne reopened its entire space on 16 April. This reopening is the culmination of six years of effort, studies, work, restoration and enrichment, making it possible to offer all visitors a museum with a new face, enlarged spaces equipped with all the functions required by today's leading cultural establishment.

In summer 2018, the museum closed its doors for renovation work. Over the last four years, major works have been carried out, including the restoration of certain parts of the building and making it accessible to people with reduced mobility. The functional areas - auditorium, educational workshop and reception room - have been renovated, extended or created.

The presentation of the collections has been completely redesigned. The conversion of former offices has made it possible to add 400 m2 for the display of works and to create a graphic arts cabinet. An independent space will be available for temporary exhibitions on the 1st floor, while the museum's garden has been completely redesigned and refurbished, with a sculpture trail opening onto contemporary art.

Act 1 of the museum's reopening will provide an opportunity to present to the public:

> A prefiguration area on the ground floor tracing the history of the collections, the museum's key artists and the prefiguration of the second part of the permanent exhibition on art from between the wars to the end of the 1960s.
> The start of the permanent tour on the 2nd floor, presenting art from the second half of the 19th century and the early 20th century, from the Realists to variations on Cubism, including the so-called "Fauvist" works and the collection of sculptures from Africa and Oceania.
> A graphic arts cabinet for a rotating display of the graphic arts collection and artists' books.
> Accessibility of the entire building for people with reduced mobility (pathways and facilities).
> A new, enlarged reception area including a shop, toilets and cloakrooms.
> A garden transformed into a living space, with new sculptures added to the itinerary.

Act 1 was also an opportunity to reveal to the public new works that had been recently acquired or discovered, adding to the pleasure of seeing or revisiting the museum's masterpieces.

ACT 2 OF THE REOPENING: ON TUESDAY 16 APRIL 2024, the museum will open in its entirety on all three floors.

The new tour begins on the 2nd floor, with the Lévy collection opening chronologically with a major trend in European art born in the middle of the 19th century: the Realism of Daumier and Courbert.
of European art born in the mid-19th century: the Realism of Daumier and Courbert, it covers the major currents of the late 19th to mid-20th centuries, including the post-impressionists Seurat and Metzinger, the Nabis Bonnard Édouard Vuillard, Ker-Xavier Roussel and Maurice Denis, the Fauves Maurice de Vlaminck, Raoul Dufy, Georges Braque and Derain. The non-Western arts in which modern artists sought a way to break away from Western tradition, the cubists Henri Hayden, Juan Gris...

The tour continues on the first floor, with two monographic areas devoted to the two major artists in the collection, Maurice Marinot and André Derain, great friends of collectors Pierre and Denise Lévy, the surrealism of Max Ernst and André Masson, the expressionism of Chaïm Soutine and Georges Rouault, and the inter-war period.

At the end of the tour, on the ground floor, we discover the figurative art of Balthus, Raoul Dufy, Bernard Buffet and La Seconde École de Paris with Maria Elena Vieira Da Silva and Nicolas de Staël. An entire room is devoted to Pierre and Denise Lévy, with the projection of an animated film. There are also areas devoted to other donations to the museum.

The renovation of the Musée d'Art Moderne is funded by the State/DRAC Grand Est, the Région Grand Est, the Département de l'Aube, Troyes Champagne Métropole and the City of Troyes.
