Can art be a cure for the ills of this world? The title of Adel Abdessemed's exhibition, "The antidote", may suggest it. But it is also the name of a bar in Lyon where Adel, as student, met his future wife Julie. On two floors of the museum, his works readily associate the individual destiny to the great history. From March 9th to July 8th, 2018, the macLYON presents new works never shown in France by Adel Abdessemed, including the spectacular "Shams" which will occupy the entire 3rd floor.
