Géraldine Crevat, our special correspondent from the land of the Greek gods:
APOLLOS'S BETTER GUARDED SECRETS
Apollo is a complex and fascinating god who enlightens the world. Influential deity of manifold function, what is his true nature? Geraldine Crevat will take us on a journey into the land of the Greek gods to help us understand Apollo's role and his lasting legacy.
The conference will be followed by a signing of Geraldine Crevat's latest book Dans les secrets des dieux grecs (The Greek gods' better guarded secrets)
Interactive and fun, this book offers the reader a captivating insight into the major gods and goddesses of the Greek pantheon by unveiling their most intimate secrets. As readers turn the pages, they will begin to understand the temperament of these mythological figures and by doing so, better understand themselves...
Interview with a prominent actor in the world of photography:
This month's event will feature an open conversation with Stéphane Brasca, founder and managing editor of De l'air, the national photography magazine created in 2000. Stéphane Brasca is also a photo book editor, exhibition curator and photography consultant.
We will welcome Hélène Bouillon, Egyptologist and Curator at the Louvre-Lens for a lecture on a subject that cannot be missed this year:
CHAMPOLLION, ON THE TRAIL OF HIEROGLYPHS
This lecture echoes the outstanding exhibition currently on show at the Louvre-Lens that marks the 200th anniversary of the deciphering of the hieroglyphs.
This year, we are putting the spotlight on a few temporary exhibitions the Mougins Museum is proud to be lending artefacts to. Our next guests will be Armande Cernuschi, Exhibition Curator, and Georges Cardoso, Registrar, from LUGDUNUM, Museum and Roman theatres, for a presentation on the exhilarating topic of their current exhibition:
SPECTACULAR! ENTERTAINMENT IN ROMAN TIMES
Gladiatoral combats, musical and theatrical performances, chariot races...as many extraordinary forms of entertainment conducive to social cohesion that contributed to glorify the city and the power of Rome. Organisers of such events were at the height of ingenuity to stage the most spectacular shows. Although they were for all to enjoy, men and women, slaves and wealthy officials alike, the seating arrangement in arenas and theatres echoed nonetheless the Roman social hierachies.
In honour of Coup de Crayon, presented at the MACM until Sunday 2nd April, the Mougins MUseum's team is delighted to welcome Grégory Couderc, Scientific Curator at the Musée national Marc Chagall in Nice for a conference entitled
MARC CHAGALL: "COLOURS MAKE DRAWINGS SING"
Through an exploratory tour of Marc Chagall's work, the conference will address the artist's creative process. In his numerous sketches, lines & colours blend together to give way to the finished works: painting, engraving, stained glass, mosaic... Chagall experimented with numerous techniques such as pastel & collage throughout his life.

THE USE OF COLOUR IN ANTIQUITY & IN CONTMEPORARY CREATIONS
