Aladin Borioli

Apian is a bee ministry founded by artist-apiculturist and anthropologist Aladin Borioli. Through a dialogue between art and science, this metaphorical institution explores the age-old relationship between humans and bees. For the exhibition Abelhat, “inhabited hive” in Occitan, Apian depicts the possible beekeeping of tomorrow, between traditional knowledge and science fiction.


Gassendi Museum

Fireflies. The art of childhood

From July 5, 2024 to February 25, 2025

Group exhibitions

Curated by Sandra Cattini and Fabienne Grasser-Fulchéri

Lucioles artists and designers highlight the intimate link that can be forged between play and learning and, even more profoundly, how imagination, the mother of invention, can be a key to understanding complex phenomena.

Drawing on a selection of works from the Trois Ourses collection, which naturally interact with other works from the Cnap design collection, the exhibition presents a selection of works and books intended for children, but whose acuity and intelligence are aimed at everyone.
