For the first time, Les Abattoirs are offering the public the opportunity to choose the works that make up the exhibition. A vote, open from December 20, 2021 to January 10, 2022, is done directly at Les Abattoirs or online on a dedicated website.

Les Abattoirs opened in 2000. For this establishment dedicated to modern and contemporary art, works from different collections have been brought together. In addition to the expected creations - paintings, sculptures, videos, photographs, drawings, prints - the storage rooms are full of curiosities such as a bed, a caravan, the protocol of a decomposing work, birthing chairs, or oil cans. The collections constitute our common heritage and a narrative of our recent history. The writing of this history is renewed and refined through annual acquisitions, donations, deposits, but also rediscoveries, restorations, exhibitions, and the gaze of artists, professionals and visitors, which make it a living and meaningful material.
