Art in Paris: 4 exhibitions to see now


I was busy with my kid on wednesday so I didn't post earlier. So here I am catching up with you, my post subject is basically: if there's something in Paris that we can't complain about is "what to do?". There are so many options that, sometimes, we just get lost. Even living here for the last 7 years, I'm still discovering many things. Anyway, the fall season is also the Art season. All the big exhibitions and Art fairs are mid October. I'm trying to get organised and give you my own reviews because I haven't visit yet any of those amazing exhibitions. For now, I just extracted the texts below from the official websites and got excited to see them all! 

So here's my DON'T MISS short list:

  • Picasso Mania (Grand Palais): The twenty or so solo or group exhibitions since 1973 that have focused on the study of the posterity of Pablo Picasso’s oeuvre testify to its impact on contemporary art. The exhibition at the Grand Palais takes a simultaneously chronological and thematic approach to the critical and artistic highlights of Picasso’s career and the myth that gradually built up around his name. More information here
  • Warhol Unlimited (MAM Paris): As a setting for the first European showing of Shadows (1978-79) in their entirety, the Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris is devoting a remarkable exhibition to Andy Warhol (1928-1987). Comprising over 200 works, Unlimited highlights the serial side of the Warhol oeuvre – a crucial aspect of his work – and his ability to rethink the way art should be exhibited. More information here
  • Splendour and Misery. Pictures of Prostitution, 1850-1910 (Musée d'Orsay): The first major show on the subject of prostitution, this exhibition attempts to retrace the way French and foreign artists, fascinated by the people and places involved in prostitution, have constantly sought to find new pictorial resources for depicting the realities and fantasies it implied. More information here
  • Fantastic! Kuniyoshi, demon of the prints (Petit Palais): Visitors to the Petit Palais are invited to discover, for the first time in France, the work of the extraordinary artist, Kuniyoshi (1797-1861).  His prints are characterised by originality in their inspiration and composition, violence in the monster and warrior prints, and humour in the Chinese shadows series, the caricatures and his representations of the life of cats. More information here.

I can't forget to mention the FIAC, the Contemporary Art Fair. More than an Art Fair is a cultural event that shakes Paris, the whole city gets involved, it's amazing.

Oh, I chose to draw Picasso's face in my real Facebook as my first drawing. 

See you next week!

Happy new studio!

Hello September!

As I posted in my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds I have exciting news! Finally I'll have my own studio here in Paris. "Mon nouveau atelier" is small, cozy and very well located, something that I've been dreaming for a while. I'm sharing the space with a small fashion brand that you'll hear about because they're very talented people. So, dreams can be true when you are grateful to the universe (and your lovely husband!). 

I'll be posting some photos soon.

4 Design Blogs that I follow and I think you should too

I've been very busy with my MATS Home Décor course, connecting with amazing artists that I admire and learning A LOT. It can be very stressing and overwhelming but also very inspiring. I couldn't post my homework for Fabric (last week's subject) because I went on a short trip to a beautiful farm with no phone or Internet and I pretty much got disconnected of my daily life. For now, it's clear that I have to build up a strong portfolio if want to go somewhere in my career.

Now I'm back to Paris and my son is on vacations. So, finding time to study, take care of my kids and keep up with my assignments is very challenging. But to be a part of such talented community is a daily gift.

Well, I was planning about this post before I started this course so I can continue with my "sharing knowledge" mood. So, this time is about art/design blogs that I've been following for years that I wanted to talk about! They're a real source of inspiration for me and reading them regularly is how I try to identify what's trendy in the creative world, find about new artists and, if I like a post subject, go deeper in researching. For someone who loves information like me, there's nothing better.

Here they are:

  1. Design Milk: Everything I love - Art, Architecture, Interiors, Products, Home, Jewellery and more. The content is so well selected. I check it daily.
  2. Fubiz: Daily dose of inspiration and contemporary creative culture platform. Very diverse and interesting.
  3. Swissmiss: I really respect what Tina Roth Eisenberg does in sharing content in design, creativity and inspiration. I check it as much as I can and she has a Friday Link Pack full of interesting things to see in the Internet.
  4. Dezeen Magazine: A magazine as they say. I love the way they mix subjects like Architecture, Product Design, Art and Technology. It's very trendy and full of cool content.

I have in my Feed reader many others more and I'll be soon sharing them. I hope you like it.

Wasn't I right to disconnect? I could not resist to share this amazing view.
