Enjoy a historic experience!
In Nîmes, opposite the two-millennia-old arena, the Musée de la Romanité invites visitors to the “historic experience”. It presents 25 centuries of history with 5000 exceptional archaeological pieces in 65 multimedia displays for a totally immersive experience (interactive maps, large-scale audiovisual technology, etc.). See life in a Gallic house, plus Roman mosaics with colourful, recreated mural decorations and objects from everyday life. You can admire the Arena behind the ramparts, exactly as if you were there 2000 years ago, and follow the influence of Roman culture down the centuries.
From 21 April to 22 October 2023: ‘Mémoire vive. Oliver Laric.’
This year, the Musée de la Romanité explores the link between Antiquity and contemporary art on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Carré d’art by showing Oliver Laric’s work. Some of the often fragmentary items in the collections are ‘re-sculpted’ using digital technology for a reinterpretation that both respects the model and is resolutely contemporary. At the meeting place between digital art and archaeology, the exhibition is a reminder of the fascination exerted by Graeco-Roman Antiquity on artists today and consecrates the idea of an Antique heritage that is universal and accessible to all.
