The various works are juxtaposed by formal, informal or even unusual affinities in a bold, labyrinth-themed set design. The route through the exhibition opens up the field of possibilities, fostering unexpected encounters and building bridges between artistic disciplines. Along the way, from Mai-Thu Perret’s ceramic octopus to Philippe Stark’s citrus press, from Sylvie Godel’s embroidered porcelain to Toots Zynsky’s glass wire bowl, visitors are free to create their own associations and to look at the works for themselves.

Featuring internationally renowned artists as well as emerging talent, mudac will thus present, for the first time in its new setting at Plateforme 10, a broad panorama of the world of contemporary design and applied arts. This exhibition will also feature a rich programme of events, cultural outreach activities and educational tools for various audiences, including an audio guide and a book for children.
