We are pleased to announce that this year Museomix will be held on two week-ends, between the 6th and the 15th of November 2015. There goes the list of museums that will cheerfully, energetically and passionately be remixed:
In France :
The Museum of Art and Archaeology, Guéret : Commonly called Museum Sénatorerie and labeled “Museum of France”, it presents 17,000 objects of natural history, Asian art, archeology, painting , sculpture and decorative arts. By presenting such a diversity of collections the Museum of Gueret mantains its encyclopedic aim inherited from the Enlightenment and the French Revolution. Hosting Museomix is a great opportunity to verify the common saying “small is beautiful, shared is wonderful.”

Dates : 6, 7, 8 nov
The National Museum of Sport, Nice : After being exposed for over 30 years in Paris, the collections of the National Museum of Sport settled in Nice on 2014. At the heart of the stadium Allianz Riviera, the permanent exhibition revolves around four areas that retrace the great moments of sport, offering visitors a breathtaking trip arranged around four “challenges.” It will be the first National Museum to host Museomix, and this experience is seen as a true sports challenge!

Dates : 13, 14, 15 nov
The Museum of Brittany, Rennes: This museum of Britain history and society was created almost 40 years ago and moved in 2006 to the Champs Libres, Rennes’ new cultural facility that brings together in one space a library, a science area and a museum. In 2015, the Museum of Brittany launched a a new scientific and cultural project aimed at placing the public at the heart of the museum approach. The museomixeurs will give their own vision of this Breton museum.

In Belgium :
The Museomix BE community has decided to develop Museomix 2015 in two different places : one in Wallonia and one in Flanders.
The Royal Museum of Mariemont : This scientific institution is part of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation. Mariemont is an exceptional place for a dialogue between art, culture and nature, with unique collections evoking the Orient and the Occident, the past and the present, fauna and flora. In a 45 hectare park, far from the city, the museomixers will be in a unique environment to prepare their projects.
The Museum of Fine Arts in Ghent (MSK Gent): The collection of the MSK is composed of 9000 objects, paintings, sculptures, drawings and graphic works. This museum houses a rich and varied collection of Belgian and European art from the Middle Ages until the first half of the 20th century.

Dates: 6, 7, 8 nov
In Canada :
The National Museum of Fine Arts of Quebec: The functions of this museum are to make known, promote and preserve Québec art from all periods. With more than 38,000 works produced since the 17th century, the MNBAQ is the living memory of art and artists from Quebec. The expansion of MNBAQ in 2016 will bring a new breath to the museum. Including digital technology into its collections will facilitate their discovery and understanding by the public. Museomix is perfect for achieving this goal with the help of the community.
