Love from A to Z

  • through August 27, 2018
  • the MuCEM, Marseille, France
A for amour (love), B for bijoux (jewelry), C for cœur (heart), and the list goes on as themes of love are broken down into 26 letters in the exhibition, from the tender to the torrid in arts from the 18th century to the present in European and Mediterranean societies. Historical objects from the museum's own collection associated with traditions (wedding garments, engagement gifts, a Breton box bed, etc.) are shown alongside objects collected more recently from Italian, Moroccan, Icelandic, Tunisian, British, Russian, French and Serbian couples, among others, illustrating the infinitely various ways people today love and express love.
