A temporary exhibit called “Constellations” was excellent. The exhibit brought together clusters of artwork around one notable piece. The layout allowed the curator to introduce new artists and artwork that may otherwise be difficult to highlight.
There were ten to fifteen notable pieces, each on display with other artwork around it. The surrounding items were all related and influenced by the main piece. The clustering was not linear in order, nor just a collection of trivial likenesses or copies. Instead the clusters combined different media such as sculpture with paintings.
The curation was well thought out, engaging, and something I would like to see replicated.
A Christmas market appears in Lyon near the beginning of December. It is held in Place Carnot infront of Perrache train station.
The square is full of Christmas themed stalls. Most of the stalls are dedicated to food and drink, with a good mix of trade crafts and other bits as well. A small internationally themed cluster of stalls makes an appearance and is always fun; these stalls sell local treats from each represented country.
We have made a habit of going with the intention of treating ourselves to a food item from a stall. This year, partly in honour of our Belgium trip, we choose freshly cooked waffles. The waffles were on sticks, shaped like a Christmas tree, and had Nutella smeared on them.
