In"The Art of James Cameron", visitors will be able to discover the history and life of the filmmaker, as well as his achievements, through numerous rare items from his private collection, exhibited for the very first time. The public will be able to travel through almost six decades, to understand the trajectory of the ideas that gave life to these films and left their mark on the seventh art.

The man many consider a genius began with a pen, pencil and brush, before moving on to the camera and the use of cutting-edge, often avant-garde technologies. Plunge into universes both marvellous and terrifying, thanks in particular to the video-mapping and interactive devices at the heart of the exhibition.
