Description

Place of conservation of the historical archives of the City and temporary exhibition space, the Maison Gribaldi is one of the last vestiges of old Evian.
Built during the Renaissance period, it still has mullioned windows topped with bracketed lintels, a wooden gallery that was replaced identically during the restoration-extension of 2013 and, inside the building, a beautiful stone spiral staircase. Built against the ramparts that encircled the city, it probably belonged to Vespasian de Gribaldi, a friend of François de Sales and former archbishop of Vienne in the Dauphiné, who left his name to it. It may have been an outbuilding of his nearby manor house, located at the corner of the upper street. The historical and iconographic archives will be digitised and accessible to all from computer stations. A valuable educational tool for research, schools and the public. On the programme from 10 June to 5 November 2023 : Exhibition "Immersion" around the Denise and Marcel Heider collection with the exceptional participation of Massimiliano Schiavon Art Team from Murano. This exhibition, dedicated to contemporary glass creation, is part of the particular context of the donation of the "Denise and Marcel Heider" Collection to the City of Evian. It reflects the "spirit" of the Heider Collection while giving a coherent overview of the richness of this field of creation through more than one hundred singular works by the greatest creators. It also offers a selection of works by young designers, giving the event a transgenerational dimension.
