Les Franciscaines celebrates one of the most popular passions of all: gambling! It’s an opportunity to plunge into the world of casinos, and in particular the famous Deauville casino and its illustrious players.
More than 200 works, from the 16th to the 21st century, plunge visitors into a world that is both fascinating and secretive. Aztec playing cards, early dice games, slot machines. Exceptional objects interact with classic, modern and contemporary works of art, some created by chance.
An artistic and scientific exhibition with a multi-disciplinary approach, exploring all the facets of gaming, from its mythical locations to its many players and personalities.
Curator: Sébastien Gökalp, curator at the Centre Pompidou, then curator at the Musée d’Art Moderne and the Fondation Louis Vuitton
