Exhibition at the Musée d’Orsay : “Wild Souls. Symbolism in the Baltic States”

Musée d'Orsay

April 10, 2018 / July 15, 2018

1 Rue de la Légion d'Honneur

Paris

Are you planning a trip to Paris in the spring or summer of 2018? Don't miss the opening of the exhibition "Wild Souls. Symbolism in the Baltic States" at the Musée d'Orsay! You will have a unique opportunity to see Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian masterpieces.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the independence of the Baltic countries, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, this exhibition presents Baltic Symbolism from the 1890s to the end of the 1920s-1930s. Each of the three countries is represented by about fifty works of art… and the exhibition will be visible in Tallinn, at the Kumu Art Museum, in autumn 2018.

European Symbolism and the emancipation of consciousness that it disseminated are inseparable in the Baltic countries from their independence. This exhibition illustrates the interplay of influences and resistances through which artists forged a creative language appropriate to their intellectual world.

Taking elements from popular culture, folklore and local legends, as well as from their unique landscapes, they have created a genuinely original art form.

General curator: Rodolphe Rapetti, general curator for Heritage
Curator of the exhibition: Beatrice Avanzi, curator at the Musée d’Orsay

Visiting the exhibition: tuesday to sunday from 9h30 to 18h / thursday from 9h30 to 21h45.
Closed on 1 May.
Ticket prices: full rate €12 / reduced rate €9 (for 18-25 year olds)
Phone: +33 1 40 49 48 14
