This multidisciplinary meeting, open to all, will be held in the framework of “L’Argument de Rouen”. It invites the public to question the ability of museums to be in touch with the societal challenges of our time. Through round tables and discussions with personalities from various disciplines, “L’Argument de Rouen” aims to question the link between museums, society and history of art, allowing this discipline to open to questions from other horizons.

The theme for L’Argument 2018 is :
“Gender equality.  Where do the museums stand?”.
