Marche et démarche
The exhibition “Marche et démarche. Une histoire de la chaussure” questions the status of this essential accessory of everyday life by visiting the different ways of walking, from the Middle Ages to the present day, both in the West and in non-European cultures. How does it work through time, cultures and social groups? Nearly 500 works: shoes, paintings, photographs, art objects, films and advertisements, from French and foreign public and private collections, offer an unusual reading of a sometimes insignificant and often extraordinary piece of clothing.
