From 14 June, the Cité presents Industrial Evolutions, a temporary exhibition that explores the "new industrial world" and its impact on mankind.
Industrial Evolutions reflects on the process of industrialisation and gives us the keys to understanding this complex and vast subject, spanning the past, present and future and touching on all areas of human activity, which are now more interdependent than ever. The artistic and educational installations give visitors a contemplative experience that allows them to understand the changes of today by comparing them with those of yesterday. They are then invited to question the duality of an industry that helps people live better but at the same time causes concern.

From 16 November 2021, the Cité will present Banquet, a new temporary exhibition that can be savoured by people of all ages and which pays tribute to all the many pleasures of gastronomy. A real feast for all the senses!
The profusion and current success of cooking shows on television and social networks, as well as the interest and enthusiasm of the French for their gastronomic heritage, show how popular, unifying and intergenerational cooking is. Inventing, tasting, sharing... this activity is nourished by multiple cultural influences and is constantly renewed by its products, recipes
and techniques. Classified as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO, the "gastronomic meal of the French" is a living heritage, accessible to all and which everyone can in turn enrich.

The Banquet exhibition is fun and playful, with a design by Frédérique Paoletti and Catherine Rouland, and offers visitors a multi-sensory and immersive experience that is both gourmet and festive. All of the public's senses are stimulated because they participate in the perception of taste: eating means seeing, but also smelling, tasting, touching and hearing.
