On the occasion of the Mexico exhibition (5 October 2016 – 23 January 2017) and the "Día de los Muertos" Festival of the Dead, the Grand Palais presents the theatrical presentation by Ariane Pick on the influence of Mexican culture on European Surrealism artists.

El día de los Muertos is one of the major traditional festivals in Mexico. It stands out by its festive and colourful quality. 
The souls of the departed come back to earth, and as such appropriate offerings are made to them. An alter is set up in every home with magnificent decorations, including objects that belonged to the deceased. People lay offerings at the base: sugar sculptures of skulls, the traditional los muertos bread, fruit or favourite meals of the deceased, candles and flowers.
