This review pertains to the current "Nuages" exhibit at this museum. Almost the entire permanent collection was removed to make room for this special exhibit. I must admit that contemporary art is not my bag. However, this exhibit brings the genre to a record low. I wish I could have heard the curator's talk. How in the world could anyone defend this nonsense? If the mark of artistic sophistication is to "oooo" and "ahhhh" over installations that are reminiscent of a shoddy freshmen foundations art class then this exhibit is a prime example. At some point the viewer must see the work for what it truly is: an embarrassing joke. Shame on the curator. Shame on the museum. To think we had to pay an extra 3 euros on top of the cost of the museum pass to enter! I gave this museum a "2" because it is located in a beautiful old building and has the potential to be a wonderful little museum. It is a wonder that anyone could bring together 56 different artists with such abysmally poor works. Skip this one unless you are into self flagellation.
