Temporary Exhibition

Bernard Manciet, Au Pays de L'esquive

> From March 30 to September 1, 2024

I am not a painter, […] I am only a stroller: that is my art, that is my profession. Well... it would have surprised us if Bernard Manciet (Sabres, 1923 – Mont-de-Marsan, 2005) did not try the opposite approach, at a time when the world of arts and culture in New Aquitaine is working to celebrate the centenary of his birth with a magnificent exhibition of his… picto-rial work.

Because yes, Bernard Manciet “Gascon poet who holds the world in a pot of resin” (Robert Escarpit), Manciet the fire-poet, surrealist, epic, psalmic, viscerally Landes and therefore universal, Manciet the jazzman, Manciet the mad talker with an apparently sleeping eye, was indeed a great visual artist in addition to being an immense poet.

After wintering at the Villa Béatrix-Enea, the contemporary art center in Anglet, the exhibi-tion Bernard Manciet, Au Pays de l’Esquive will set up shop in Sabres, the hometown. This sumptuous retrospective of more than 167 works – paintings, drawings, sketches – signed Bernard Manciet, will be visible from March 30 to September 1, 2024 at the Pavillon de l’Écomusée de Marquèze.

Permanent Exhibition

Land development in the Landes de Gascogne

This permanent exhibition retraces the history of land development in the Landes de Gascogne from the 19th century to the present day. Explore the key stages of a veritable conquest through several exhibition rooms. Once composed mainly of open moorland used by shepherds and farmers, the landscape was brutally transformed during the 19th century to become what is now the largest industrial forest in Europe. This upheaval of the landscape was accompanied by a profound change in local society.
