What kind of artist do you dream of being? LE RÊVE d'ÊTRE ARTISTE at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Lille tells the story of the construction of a myth, and focuses on the personas of artists and their wish to be immortal through art, from the Middle Ages until today. Comprised of a hundred works and investigating themes such as signature, self-representation, genius or corporatism, this exhibition tells the story of the irresistible rise of the Artist. On view until the 6th of January 2020.
