Conceived on the initiative of the heritage defense association La Renaissance du Stadium, the MEFI traveling and militant exhibition brings together more than a hundred works and artifacts related to the history of the Vitrolles Stadium, from its genesis until today, with a particular focus on its design and construction. A precious sum of archives and works of art tells the story of the building. In addition, there are elements of furniture torn from the core of this abandoned black box and fragments of metal sheets woven with pop flowers, acoustic coverings removed from the auditorium and reused here as picture rails. Thus, the Stadium exposes its interiority, exhibits and moves, composes and recomposes itself.
