Le scatole dei segreti di Niki de Saint Phalle

Two years after a show devoted to Swiss artist Jean Tinguely, the cheerful and colorful universe of Niki de Saint Phalle — Tinguely’s wife and artistic collaborator — has come to the Museo in Erba in Bellinzona, Switzerland.

Le scatole dei segreti di Niki de Saint Phalle, a child-friendly exhibition in the form of an interactive game, is the fruit of a collaboration between Lausanne’s Center Culturel d’Aide à la Jeunesse and the Musée en Herbe in Paris. It consists of 14 modules exploring the artist’s work, short texts and games. The show gives autonomous, active children a rare opportunity to dive into an artistic universe full of life, joy and color.

The exhibition, which opened 12 September 2009, will continue through 28 February 2010. Learn more.
