Arts and culture : what to do in Cannes in March

A visit to Cannes can not be made without taking the time to stop and explore its cultural attractions. Famous for the film festival and its parade of stars on the red carpet, Cannes also offers a host of museums and exhibitions that will allow you to discover the artistic soul of this multi-faceted city: its architecture, its penchant for fashion. On the way, you will be surprised by its mystical aspect which has intrigued and inspired numerous painters over the years.

Must-see museums


As springtime approaches, Cannes offers exhibitions that will take you on an unexpected artistic whirlwind. From words to painting, through photography, these one-off exhibitions will allow you to you discover places that stray far from the beaten track of traditional tourism. Start by visiting the fascinating museum at the Chappelle Bellini, in the pathways of the Fiorentina park. In the artists' residence at Le Suquet, you can meet Boris Wilensky, a travel photographer who highlights the superimposition of urbanism and humanism. His photographic montages will transport you on an Asian journey, exploring the tension between modernity and tradition. On the Avenue de la Croisette, in the centre of art Malmaison, a painter once decided to redraw the curves of painting, to play with lines and colours, to transform pictorial art. You can admire Stanley William Hayter's groundbreaking work in a new exhibition which offers an exceptional ensemble of over a hundred of his major works, filled with colour, disproportion and confusion.
