Orange wrappers were part of the popular cultural heritage of the 20th century. They were produced into the 1980s, when the use of fungicides and wax caused them to fall into disuse. In 2022, Pascal Casson donated his collection of nearly 20,000 orange wrappers to MIAM. This collection was showcased at the Modestes et Appliqués exhibition coproduced by MIAM and La Fenêtre. Now, they wish to highlight this outstanding new collection with a research residence. The aim is to pursue and extend the concept begun by Hervé di Rosa and MIAM while participating in current efforts to develop graphic design.
