A short break in your visit to the museum!
Parenthesis Space invites you to discover some of the newly acquired pieces. Our curators offer you a selection of some of the last works that have been added to the collections. These capsule exhibitions are based on themes that are as varied as they are unexpected. Works you will not see anywhere else!
