Corsier-sur-Vevey, Switzerland, 15 February 2022 – From 18 March to 25 September 2022, Chaplin’s World, the only museum in the world dedicated to Charlie Chaplin, will pay homage to the artist’s first feature-length work, “The Kid.” Lauded by the British Film Institute as one of the Top 50 films to watch before turning fifteen, it is possibly the most autobiographical work in Chaplin’s canon, a masterful blend of laughter and compassion that mirrors his childhood. Created especially for Chaplin’s World by Yves Durand, the Museum’s concept designer, “The Kid: The Exhibition” will be produced by the Charlie Chaplin Museum Foundation. Through the lens of Chaplin’s own childhood, it will give kids and adults alike a chance to discover his inspiring life journey, from London slums to worldwide fame. “The Kid: The Exhibition” is a fun, immersive exhibition for people of all ages!
