Prints / Imprints: An exhibition featuring the work of a mystery artist
Since the dawn of time, humans have liked to leave traces of their passage on Earth. Whether we're thinking of rock art, the monuments of vanished civilizations, or even the graffiti that adorns our modern cities, people leave footprints behind.
From November 21, a new showcase in the World Cultures gallery will present a selection of prints that are likely to be part of a series of works that have been hidden here and there in the Musée by a mystery artist, probably around the early 2010s. The staff, who occasionally find these works under display cases, behind furniture or in drawers in the museum galleries, have preserved the 25 works found so far. What was the artist's purpose behind this? We may never know. But one thing's for sure: the artist has left his mark at the Musée, and our curiosity is well and truly piqued!
Found: April 29, 2016. Under mineral case 10.
