"It happened tomorrow, the comic strip of SF invades Poitiers." Episode 1: Plates, drawings and collectibles "
The Mirror, a unique cultural project launched by the City of Poitiers, launches an exhibition from June 25 to September 17, 2017: "It happened tomorrow ... SF Comics invades Poitiers Episode 1: boards, drawings and objects Of collection ". To see in the chapel Saint-Louis!

Open to all fields of visual expression, Le Miroir establishes a dialogue between the arts and forms, creative approaches and eras, paying particular attention to decorative arts, fashion, crafts, design, Graphic design, comics, photography, video ...

After making the pupils shine with the sumptuous windows of the Hermès house in 2016, the Mirror embarks for a fabulous trip of two years in the heart of the science fiction comic and asks: how to expose the comic?

This first episode approaches the comic strip as a museum object. Original pieces, plates, drawings and patrimonial objects from public and private collections are presented in three contemplation cabinets.The exhibition questions three axes, which are graphically treated on their external faces: the comic strip in its editorial process; The comic strip in the museum; Comics and collectors.
On the occasion of the opening, a concert under the helmet of Ars Nova will offer a prefiguration of the sound piece created by Grégoire Lorieux for the scenographic route of episode 2.

The second episode will arrive in the summer of 2018.
