This summer, the Domaine de Kerguéhennec offers two new exhibitions. Flora Maxima, the temporary collective exhibition on the topic of flowers, and the new space dedicated to the painter Pierre Tal Boat.
Surprisingly, in the Domaine de Kerguéhennec, flowers are more present in ornamental patterns and painted decorations of the castle than in its gardens. The exhibition Flora Maxima makes the flowers enter right in the centre of the exhibition spaces. Twelve artists offer a travel into a pictorial world full of references to the nature and history of art.

Opening of a brand-new space
The Morbihan Department inaugurates this summer in the Domaine de Kerguéhennec a new space dedicated to the French painter Pierre Tal Coat (1905-1985) with more than 1200 works. The artist, son of a Breton Fisherman and friend of Alberto Giacometti was an important painter of the second part of the 20th century (Venice Biennale in 1956, retrospective in Grand Palais in Paris in 1976, exhibition in the New-York New Museum in 1985)
