D’OLYMPIE À PARIS ANTOINE Guillopé – Exhibition

Vernissage of the exhibition (15.05. – 28.06.2024) with Géraldine Elschner as part of the Europe Weeks Heidelberg from May 2 to 31, 2024 Montpellier-Haus, Kettengasse 19, 69117 Heidelberg, admission free, opening hours of the exhibition Mondays to Thursdays, 10 am – 1 pm and 2 pm – 5 pm, Fridays only until 4 pm, closed during the Pfi ngsferien from May 27 to 31

On May 13, just a few days after Europe Day, the Olympic Flame arrives in Montpellier. The Occitan city bears the “Terre de Jeux 2024” label as a stage on the long journey that will take this symbol of peace and unity from the ancient temples of Olympia to Paris. A great honor for them – and also for Europe, whose flag will fly over the venues in Paris for the first time. Bringing people closer together in a spirit of peace – this goal unites everyone and gives us the opportunity to celebrate together.

D’Olympie à Paris is also the title of Géraldine Elschner’s book, illustrated by Antoine Guilloppé and produced in collaboration with the Musée du Louvre. Guilloppé’s silhouette-like artistic play perfectly evokes the red and black athletes of ancient ceramics. A special picture book about art and sport, transcending time, European, but not only, Olympic and Paralympic at the same time. A beautiful artistic way to celebrate the start of the Olympic Games in France in Heidelberg!
