Listed as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity by Unesco, Día de los Muertos is the famous Mexican festival of the dead which brings together all Mexicans, for three days, around festivities that are both codified and sacralised. In every home, offerings are placed on family altars, and on 2 November, when the dead are commemorated, Mexicans go from one cemetery to another throwing flower petals and lighting candles to guide the souls to their graves. Día de los muertos is a joyful mixture of Aztec customs and Catholic beliefs.
As part of the exhibition, the Palais Galliera invites children accompanied by their parents to come (in costume) to celebrate Día de los Muertos, with a free and exceptional programme: participatory construction of an altar of the dead, making of skeleton masks, family discovery tours and a performance by female Mariachis. Children can come dressed up if they wish.
