Exhibitions labeled as being of national interest in 2024

The Ministry of Culture has communicated the list of exhibitions receiving the “Exhibition of National Interest” label in 2024. Twenty-seven exhibitions from territorial museums were selected, three more than last year. Spread across thirteen regions, they highlight art, crafts and local history. Numerous monographic exhibitions have been certified, including several devoted to female artists. The place of women in history is a theme that emerges from the selection as does that of sport, particularly relevant this year with the Olympic Games.

Created in 1999, the “Exhibition of National Interest” label is awarded each year by the Ministry of Culture, as part of its policy of territorial action and cultural democratization. Its objective is to highlight exhibitions organized by regional museums benefiting from the “Musée de France” designation, selected by a committee of experts for “the originality of their speech, their original thematic approach and the innovative nature of their mediation and communication actions”. Museums receive subsidies from the relevant DRAC, varying between €4,000 and €30,000 depending on the projects.

Here is the list of twenty-seven exhibitions selected in 2024:
