Wilde not so wild
Oscar Wilde: Insolence Incarnate
@ Petit Palais, Paris, France
01 Dec, 2016

While it's worth seeing the works, writings and images surrounding Wilde as a student, critic, writer and prisoner, the set-up makes it hard to take in everything seamlessly...unless you have the place to yourself which needless to say I didn't.

Une promenade en foret dans un musée
The Great Animal Orchestra
@ Fondation Cartier, Paris, France
26 Nov, 2016

Grâce à Cultural I.v., nous avons visité cette extraordinaire exposition avec nos enfants de 7 et 4 ans. Entre les tableaux peints à la poudre à canon, les meutes de loups, les parades nuptiales poétiques et la salle merveilleuse des chants de la nature, cela n'a jamais été aussi facile de convaincre des enfants de la magie de l'art. Merci!

Colorful stroll through Mexico
Mexique (1900-1950)
@ Grand Palais, Paris, France
24 Nov, 2016

Overall I liked the exhibit as I went into it not knowing much about early 20th Century Mexico; it does a good job giving historical context to the art. But there were moments I felt a bit lost in how it was organized and the description of specific works was in small writing almost at knee level which makes it tough to read. But the subject matter and the distinctive style makes it worth the visit!

Post-war anxieties expressed perfectly
Bernard Buffet: A Retrospective
@ Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, Paris, France
23 Nov, 2016

His paintings are somber with hard edges but it works because the exhibit does an excellent job putting them in a post-war, chronological context. It isn't exactly feel-good art I'd have hanging over my bed (he was known to "express the anxieties of a generation that had come through the war") but for those interested in the life of a French painter in the second half of the 20th Century it's great.

Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905-2016
@ Whitney Museum, New York, USA
19 Nov, 2016

While some pieces were good (crossroads is mesmerizing), quality was in my opinion way too inconsistent, and while it's partly understandable due to the nature of the exhibition, it's physically exhausting to go through due to the noise level and flashy visuals. Not the best floor of the Whitney!

Roger Tallon
@ Les Arts Décoratifs, Paris, France
17 Nov, 2016

Au début je n’ai pas accroché, je trouvais que ce n’était pas très clair et je ne voyais pas où on voulait m’amener, mais dans la deuxième partie de l’exposition consacrée au design industriel dans les transports (avec notamment le TGV et le Corail), je me suis laissée entrainer. Je dirais cependant que cette partie de l’exposition s’adresse majoritairement aux français, qui peuvent facilement réaliser à quel point Tallon a été présent dans leur quotidien sans qu’ils le sachent.

Jean Nouvel, Architect’s Furniture
@ Les Arts Décoratifs, Paris, France
17 Nov, 2016

An original and nice way to rediscover the permanent collection of the the museum. From the middle age to the XXth century we are transported into many home interiors, each more beautiful than the last. BUT I didn’t quite get how Jean Nouvel fits into this and what was really the purpose of his displays, even if the items we see from him are nice and I liked the contrast between his modern works and the older interiors we navigate through.

Nice one but unclear positioning
Spirit of Bauhaus: The Object in Question
@ Les Arts Décoratifs, Paris, France
17 Nov, 2016

Probably too simple for people who are familiar with the Bauhaus history and artistic movement, and a bit light for people who don’t know about it. However, it was an enjoyable journey with beautiful furnitures and items shown.

La peinture de l'impossible
Hodler Monet Munch
@ Marmottan-Monet, Paris, France
16 Nov, 2016

Le pari n'était pas gagné de présenter trois peintres qui ne se sont jamais rencontrés!or cette exposition met en scène le croisement inattendu entre ces différents peintres sur des thèmes difficiles à aborder tels que le soleil, l'eau, la neige. La radicalité de leur démarche est du reste assez incroyable, ils nous offrent une expérience jusqu'au boutiste de leur travail....... C'est un bon moment à ne pas rater

I want an Agnes Martin above my couch
Agnes Martin
@ Guggenheim, New York, USA

Martin's work has a light and accessible feel to it. It makes for a nice stroll up and down the museum's circular layout which also helps the visitor see how the artist progressed through her career.

Short and sweet...with all the right stuff
Max Beckmann in New York
@ Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, USA
15 Nov, 2016

Best part was getting a feel for the artist and the period...pre- to post-war, personal and professional. And to think he died of a heart attack on his way to see his art displayed at the Met! It's not a big show but it's worth walking through and reading the wall texts.

The best kind of history lesson
Jerusalem, 1000-1400: Every People Under Heaven
@ Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, USA
15 Nov, 2016

All the art and objects are put in context which makes it easy to walk through the long history of this city that still plays a big role in current affairs. Images of the city today are projected on the walls above the content which is fun given most of it dates back a while. Check it out!

It's an important and relevant story told chronologically through the works and lives of the artists. It's well laid out which makes the walk-through easy and educational for all visitors.

While small, the exhibit felt all over the place...hard to understand how it was organized. But the relevance of some works makes it worth seeing.

René Magritte: The Betrayal of Images
@ Centre Pompidou, Paris, France

I didn't really know Magritte's work, but did know the artist of course. I was very lucky to visit the exhibit with a super great guide who explained many things and gave anecdotes on the artist and his work. She gave us keys to understand Magritte's art!

Icons of Modern Art: The Shchukin Collection
@ Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris, France
05 Nov, 2016

Matisse, Cezanne, Picasso, Gauguin, Monet... they're all here! So many incredible paintings gathered at the Fondation. I specially loved the room dedicated to Matisse's bright and huge art works. The film explaining how Shchukin acquired this amazing collection is great as well.

Big show with big art
Icons of Modern Art: The Shchukin Collection
@ Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris, France
05 Nov, 2016

It's an impressive collection this Russian put together...especially when you put it in context of the times which the show did a good job doing. But while I get the draw of exhibiting the entire collection I think 4 floors of paintings with large crowds is a bit much. But it's a show worth seeing...especially when you couple it with a stop by the restaurant for a quick bite!

A good one needing some time
05 Nov, 2016

An interesting confrontation of texts and photos from the Internet about society issues. The organization of all the materials available is sometimes a bit messy with maybe too much information. You need some time to go through everything. But you can also look randomly at what is presented - which I did - and enjoy the overall experience.
