Le Dernier Pharaon at Arts et Métiers, Paris

Scientifiction, Blake et Mortimer au musée des Arts et Métiers immerses the visitor in the world of “wonderful scientist” imagined by the creator of the characters of Blake and Mortimer. More than 120 original plates preserved by the King Baudouin Foundation will be exhibited for the first time. Presented from June 26, 2019 to January 5, 2020, this retrospective reflects the resolutely contemporary vision of this unique heritage of the 9th art.

To launch a series of talks during the Scientifiction exhibition on June 27, 2019 a conference was held with François Schuiten, Laurent Durieux, Jaco van Dormael and Thomas Gunzig about Le Dernier Pharaon. The conference was led by Thierry Bellefroid and Eric Dubois, the two curators of the exhibition.
