DALI\'S WALL, EXHIBITION Link: dali

from Thursday 11 September 2014 to Sunday 15 March 2015

Surrealism meets street art.For its next exhibition, the Espace Dali has invited street artists to take over the space. Twenty artists imagine an encounter with Salvador Dali, drawing inspiration for their original works from Dali's creative and crazy imagination and combining this with the vocabulary and codes of contemporary urban art. Indeed, Salvador Dali broke free from the classic exhibition setting in order to produce more creative experiences, and also liked to be defined as an artist of the people. No wonder, therefore, that the artists who use public space as their canvas have laid claim to the legacy of the ephemeral artistic world created by this master of surrealism. The result is an unusual and unprecedented dialogue between the subversive spirit of urban art and the provocative surrealism of Dali's imagination.

the Borgia\'s and their time

from Wednesday 17 September 2014 to Sunday 15 February 2015

A holy family.The Borgia family became notorious as many charismatic members of the family became statesmen or popes. Their bad reputation fascinated many over the centuries. Authors as diverse as Victor Hugo and Alejandro Jodorowsky wrote about the Borgias. The recent television series devoted to them fascinated millions of viewers. These extraordinarily enlightened characters were also patrons of the arts, commissioning the greatest of Renaissance artists - with whom they often had close relationships - to produce work for them, at the various Italian courts. Through portraits of the Borgias, visitors will discover what they really looked like. These portraits will be accompanied by portraits of the other important public figures at this time, including princes, philosophers, scientists and theologians.

Hokusai at le grand palais

from Wednesday 01 October 2014 to Sunday 18 January 2015

It's now or never.A protean artist with an extravagant personality, Hokusai was a bold artist who changed his signature some fifty times. He left us a body of work that is both abundant and varied including The great wave off Kanagawa which is probably the most famous example of Japanese art in the West. A unique opportunity to discover the works of this artist from ukiyo-e, especially as a Hokusai Museum is to be founded in Tokyo soon which means that his works will be less likely to travel in the coming years.
MARCEL DUCHAMP, PAINTINGS, EXHIBITION Link: duchamps
avant-garde at georges Pompidou\'s center

from Wednesday 24 September 2014 to Monday 05 January 2015

Avant garde.For some, Marcel Duchamp alone represents modernity in art, and his status as an artist is no longer questioned or challenged. He introduced radical change into the art world with his "ready-mades", effectively killing off painting. However he himself was originally, a painter. The Pompidou Centre takes another look at the the legacy left by Duchamp with this retrospective brought up to date but based on the exhibition designed for the inauguration of the centre in 1977.
SONIA DELAUNAY, EXHIBITION Link: delauney sonia
Colour and abstraction.

from Friday 17 October 2014 to Sunday 22 February 2015

Colour and abstraction.This retrospective attempts to show the original approach to colour developed by the young Sonia Delaunay-Terk (1885-1979) from a selection of her early portraits, paintings and drawings. The exhibition also highlights the importance of her Russian origins, her involvement in the applied arts, as well as her role in the beginnings of abstraction and the specific place of Sonia Delaunay's work within the European avant-garde network. Her substantial activities in the fields of fashion and design are the subject of particular attention. The exhibition also highlights the key role of the artist, as the link between the generation of the pioneers of abstraction and the abstract artists of the postwar period. Particular attention is paid to the formal renewal of works of the second half of the century.

Paris at carnavalet

from Tuesday 10 June 2014 to Sunday 01 February 2015

The liberation of Paris, in images.On 10 November 1944, France - and the Allies - were still fighting, Paris has just been liberated and the first exhibition on the Liberation was inaugurated at the Carnavalet Museum. Nearly three quarters of a century later, the Carnavalet museum presents an exhibition organized to mark the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of Paris. Both news and history, it aims to illustrate the Parisians' struggle for freedom, particularly as seen through the eyes of the great photographers of the time. From September 7, 1944, Franois Boucher, curator of the Muse Carnavalet and resistant began to "gather documents essential to the future historian" and made an appeal to "establish a comprehensive documentation of the liberation of Paris." The new exhibition allows visitors a glimpse of the fine collection of photographs documenting World War II belonging to the Carnavalet Museum. The prints on display are mainly the same as were exhibited in November 1944, enriched and contextualised with various acquisitions and other works collected by the museum since then.

n America, the Mayan people is one of the most ancient ones. Although they have only really been known for two hundred years (their remains having been mostly buried under vegetation), these people, known for their builders and scholars, left the elements of a remarkable culture behind them. The Branly quay museum has welcomed nearly four hundred works of art (sculptures, jewellery, ceramics, textiles) in its retracing of the existence of the Mayans, dating back to the first millennium BC, the period of the oldest known archeological remains to this day. The record is largely things to do with beliefs and rites, while at the same time offering visitors a chance to immerse themselves in the daily life of these populations who occupied a vast territory which covered what is now Mexicao, Honduras, Guatemala and Belize.

Throughout this presentation, which reveals rare and compelling masterpieces, we retrace the major phases of the career of this innovative painter, who was a pupil of Verrocchio; who brought out, in particular, the decorative role of landscapes. Savour the delicacy of his work, which uses elements of transparency and light, dedicated to subjects including, primarily, religious ones. In particular, you will also notice the importance of his contribution in the painting of his contemporaries, which was quick to echo across borders and gain attention internationally.
LOUIS VUITTON FOUNDATION Link: Louis Vuitton foundation
FRANCK GEHRY

OPENING oct 2014

The much-anticipated Louis Vuitton Foundation (Fondation Louis-Vuitton), in Paris, is now open to the public. The massive museum for contemporary art, designed by Frank Gehry, is a spectacle: The gallery spaces are contained in cement blocks covered by massive, curved pieces of glass. Set in a public park in the Bois de Boulogne in the western part of the city, the structure seems to alight on the earth like a spaceship from the future. Bernard Arnault, the 65-year-old chairman and chief executive of LVMH Mot Hennessy Louis Vuitton (MC:FP), commissioned the museum, and both he and the 85-year-old Gehry hope this building will be an indisputably positive contribution to a complicated legacy. Its the first privately funded major cultural institution in France. Museums, opera houses, and the like are generally considered the domain of government bureaucracy in France. But LVMH managed to sidestep the usual objections by building the structure in a public park. In an agreement with the city for the plot, ownership of the museum will revert to Paris in 55 years. Even though the ostentatious design rankled a NIMBY group, the museum is, in essence, a gift to the city worth a reported $134 million.
