The Interpretation Centre is located in new premises on the Place Castellane. Its opening took place on Friday, 5th August 2022.
This permanent exhibition, allows us to discover the life of this immense pioneer of Modern Art of the 20th century and his wife’s, Margaret Macdonald.
The couple stayed on the Côte Vermeille, in Collioure during the summer of 1924 and mostly in Port-Vendres, where they had rooms at the Hôtel du Commerce, during the years 1925, 1926, 1927.
The originality of this exhibition consists in placing Mackintosh’s watercolours (exact copies of the originals) in the context of the cultural and local history of the time. It does not simply retrace the couple’s life in the department.
Everyone will be able to appreciate the videos made from archive films that recount life in the 1920s in the two nearby towns of Collioure and Port-Vendres.
The admission is free and everyone will be able to benefit from a commentary given by the volunteer members who are present at the exhibition on Wednesdays and Fridays from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. during the period from 15th February to 15th November.
