Anders Zorn: Sweden’s Master Painter
@ Petit Palais, Paris, France
19 Nov, 2017

Glad the Petit Palais opened this artist up to everyone because he doesn’t disappoint. From the technique to the playfulness of his subjects and the set-up of the exhibition itself this exhibition is a great discovery.

Art of Pastels from Degas to Redon
@ Petit Palais, Paris, France
14 Nov, 2017

"l'art du pastel" Allez y! cette exposition est d'une fraîcheur incroyable,tellement reposante et gai! Le pastel est une matière souple et fragile qui met en valeur la légèreté, la souplesse des matières. Des peintres moins connus tels que Riesener, Charles Léandre, Emile Guillaume Adam , James Tissot côtoient des maîtres tels que Gaugin, Renoir, Berthe Morisot,, Mary Cassat, Degas..... c'est sublime!

Anders Zorn: Sweden’s Master Painter
@ Petit Palais, Paris, France
14 Nov, 2017

Le Petit Palais vaut déjà le détour! Anders Zorn était pour moi un inconnu que j'ai eu de la chance de découvrir, aquarelliste de grand talent, peintre voyageur... j'ai compris qu'il était un maître très populaire en Scandinavie, et pour cause, il a une grande maîtrise de l'aquarelle, du portrait en particulier, un rendu des tissus incroyable, une grande maîtrise des effets d'eau, à tel point qu'on croit admirer des photographies. Ses Nus ressemblent à s'y méprendre à ceux de Renoir! Peintre à découvrir ou à revoir absolument

Chagall: Fantasies for the Stage
@ LACMA, Los Angeles, USA
12 Nov, 2017

It’s hard to go wrong at a place like LACMA and its big, open galleries. There was a real element of theater to this show wirh stages, mannequins and music, as well as a narrative that was easy to follow. Perfect first-date spot ;)

Adrían Villar Rojas: Theater of Disappearance
@ MOCA Geffen Contemporary, Los Angeles, USA
12 Nov, 2017

The artist has his ideas about how he wants audiences to experience this show but as a visitor I could have used a frame of reference from which to approach it. It’s a very different experience than other exhibitions so worth the visit but as I left I realized I may not have fully grasped his narrative.

Cézanne Portraits
@ National Portrait Gallery UK, London, England

Well worth it. Busy but didnt need to book in advance, right size, text not too far fetched with good spin to Cezanne’s story as son or an unsupportive banker! - spot on

Nan Goldin: Family History
@ Portland Museum of Art, Portland ME, USA
02 Nov, 2017

une atmosphère un peu spéciale pour cette expo mais l’ensemble n’est pas mal. Les deux films projetés sont assez bien faits. L’un met en parallèle des œuvres du Louvre avec des photos de l’artiste sur un fond musical assez envoûtant. C’est parfois un peu dérangeant mais globalement assez agréable à regarder et un moment plutôt apaisant. Ce n’est pas l’exposition de l’année mais ça vaut tout de même le coup d’y faire un tour si vous êtes à Portland.

Child’s Play: Representations in Adolescence

I was really impressed by the museum as a whole but didn’t enjoy this specific exhibit. I neither really understood its purpose nor liked the photos displayed.

This is a short exhibition but really interactive and fun. We had a great time as a family playing within the installations. One conclusion: GO!

Toyin Ojih Odutola: To Wander Determined
@ Whitney Museum, New York, USA

Short (just one large room) yet nice exhibit. Accessible for free. I liked the style of the paintings and it is interesting to discover a small part of the Nigerian high society culture which I am not at all familiar with.

Very interesting and still a pretty hot topic now a days. I particularly enjoyed the short film and the letters exchanged between some activist artists and the museums.

A photography show that I felt shed light on the artist's world in an accessible way. It has both the photographs on the wall and slide shows accompanied by music and in one case the artist's narration which makes for a different visitor experience. This show and the fact that the PMA is always good for a stroll and coffee makes it a must if you're near or passing through Portland!

Amazing exhibition! A must go! I highly recommend the audio guide/application. The diversity of his work is very interesting, from fashion to portraits, from still life to poeple, very complete work. he had a very modern eye from his early work.

Impressive and original show. Many things to see and read. My 5yo daughter loved it as well. It’s easy, accessible and different from what you would see in a museum.

I didn’t know Dana Schultz and it was a very good surprise and discovery. I love big and colorful paintings and so they were, without being naive. And they make think about their subject and the world around us. A very good experience and a must see if you are in Boston.

The paintings are beautiful but it’s very short to be called an exhibition. Of course a must see when in the museum but I won’t cross the city to see it.

Black and White: Japanese Modern Art

Disappointing. Calling a small room with a few art pieces an exhibition is a bit exaggerated! Even if the few artworks were not bad.

A fairly unique style on large canvases with lots of color makes for a visually-pleasing stroll through this show. Some I like to look at but mostly I like the ideas behind the work (i.e. 'Swimming. Smoking. Crying').

Takashi Murakami: Lineage of Eccentrics
@ MFA Boston, Boston Area, USA
24 Oct, 2017

For someone who knows little about Japanese artists this was a great introduction to an internationally-recognized (he also has an ongoing show at the Garage Museum in Moscow) figure of contemporary Japanese art. It's intellectual yet playful so very accessible, but maybe a touch short so don't worry about losing steam half-way through...

Takashi Murakami: Lineage of Eccentrics

A short yet well set up exhibit with a few monumental works by Murakami. I would have liked a bit more but the parallel between his works and some old Japanese artworks was original and interesting.

Good exhibit with interesting explanations (unfortunately very often only in French). My 5yo daughter enjoyed the children book. We spend 1 hour in the exhibit which was perfect for her and for me.

Cool to see the story of Pop Art through a small part of the Whitney’s collection and worth going in the morning to avoid crowds. Not bad for the kids either as they have a game sheet tracking the show...

Great exhibition! The idea of comparing these 3 artists, friends, on different themes makes this visit passionate. I urge you to visit it :-)
