Lyon: «At your feet» at the Musée des Confluences
Shoes are gossiping and reveal a lot about who is wearing them.
Whether sandals, boots, moccasins, slippers or others, from here or elsewhere, yesterday, today and to come, shoes are intimately linked to human stories. It is therefore not surprising that they are so close to us, whether we are aware of it or not. They act as witnesses to various lifestyles, as objects of desire, and often as a sign of belonging to a group. Under the gaze of who knows the decipher, they reveal codes and symbols. These multiple facets thus reinforce us in the idea that there is nothing insignificant in the shoes that we choose to wear. The exhibition takes us step by step to the discovery of pairs from all continents, from the 16th to the 21st centuries, from the delicate Chinese footbeds to the current sneakers.
Until April 30th. Www.museedesconfluences.fr
