A tour to learn about the exhibition Marisol: A Retrospective

Our two tour options allow visitors to discover the exhibition Marisol: A Retrospective at their own pace while taking full advantage of our mediation team’s expertise. Come and meet Marisol (1930-2016), an enigmatic, innovative and bold artist who was a major figure of her generation.

Guided tour This type of tour enables you to see this exhibition through the expert eyes of our guides, who will offer you a look at it reflecting their unique perspectives and special favourites. Enthusiastically sharing their knowledge about the works, our guides take an approach based on dialogue that encourages young people to give voice to their impressions and exchange their ideas.

Tour with in-gallery support While wandering freely through this exhibition, you’ll benefit from volunteer guides being on hand who will be able to answer your questions and help you gain an aesthetic appreciation of the works on view.
