Drawings of survivors of the bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima hanging at Musée de la Résistance and la Déportation de l’Isère, okay, but why? Simply because this museum does not summarize its temporary exhibitions in the period and the geographical area that its name can imply (roughly, the Second World War in Isère). And, especially, because this summer is launched l’Année du Japon in Isère (as there was previously that of Italy or Africa), at the initiative of the Department, and in connection with course with the national celebration of the 160th anniversary of diplomatic relations between France and Japan.

Several departmental museums are or will be associated with these festivities, as, therefore, the Musée de la Résistance, but also that of la Révolution Française in Vizille (it’s new exhibition Heurs and misfortunes of Louis XVII, stop on images devotes a section to the fascination that the revolutionary period exerts on the authors of manga), the Musée de l’Ancien Évêché (where will be presented in the autumn a collection of prints of the Edo era on the theme of the mountain), the Musée Hébert de La Tronche (an exhibition should focus this winter on objects from the Japanese collections of Ernest Hébert) or, here is the hunk, an exhibition at the Musée Dauphinois which will open this fall. “it will talk about the relations that the West has with Japan since medieval times until today and will be built in partnership with the Musée des Confluences de Lyon” explained Patrick Curtaud, vice president of culture at Departmental Council of Isère.

“Faithful to its participative approach, the Musée dauphinois has mobilized widely Isérois actors (associations, cultural, academic, economic) who have links with Japan around this season, starting with the Franco-Japanese Association of Grenoble and Isère.” dixit the draft press release – this l’Année du Japon should officially be launched in July, via the official website.
