Great Exhibit - would recommend!

Great exhibit, would recommend! I wish there was more on display from this photography master, but good content and nice clean open space.

American Painting in the 1930’s
@ Orangerie Museum, Paris, France
Voyage au coeur de la grande dépression américaine
22 Oct, 2016

C'est réellement un retour dans les États Unis des années 30. Dès l'entrée on a une mise en contexte facile à lire et passionnante, et tout au long de l'expo les textes sont simples et intéressants. Le petit + : un court texte explicatif pour chaque tableau présenté.

Well done, Orangerie. Well done!
22 Oct, 2016

It was pretty crowded late Saturday afternoon but still walked out feeling I'd seen a great show. The time period was neatly outlined as you walk in so right there you have context for everything that follows. If in Paris this one's a good one!

Carl Andre: Sculpture as Place, 1958-2010
@ MAM - Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, Paris, France
Walking on the art
18 Oct, 2016

I walked into this show not knowing Carl Andre the sculpture. I didn't necessarily get all of his work but there were certain parts of the show I really enjoyed - watching visitors walk on some of his works with a sheepish look on their face and a powerful cement installation that made me think of a cemetery or soldiers in formation. It's a good show to visit with friends.

Nice works but didn't quite get it...
18 Oct, 2016

Perhaps this show is meant for a niche audience as I had trouble understanding why the Louvre's visitors would find it important to know about this Swede's collection - which by the way is beautiful just not my taste. The text panels (in English at least) are small and dense which is always tough, one gallery has a kind of mural at the end with no description that doesn't seem to belong and the exhibition is split between two unconnected galleries.

Uprisings
@ Jeu de Paume, Paris, France
A great show that feels relevant
18 Oct, 2016

Here's the evolution of the exhibit in a nutshell: "Arms have been raised, mouths have exclaimed. Now, what are needed are words...". This show does a great job capturing the arms raised, the mouths opened and the words used in uprisings. It feels relevant to what's happening around the world today. And one thing I loved was a video by Tsubasa Kato - 'Break it Before it's Broken, 2015'

An exhibition of an impressive documentary wealth and an incredible emotional power. A remarkable work. George Didi-Huberman transports us with this exhibition on the theme of the collective feelings.

Tres belle expo, à la fois originale avec des œuvres peu connues, et pleine d enseignements sur l évolution comparée des styles de trois peintres représentatifs de leur époque. Des thèmes qui nous parlent, des couleurs magnifiques, de l émotion tout simplement !

Fabulous exhibition at the Musée du Luxembourg. Small and intimate. Special crush on the many breathtaking still-life paintings. Go on late opening on Fridays, very small venue. I highly recommend.

Hodler Monet Munch
@ Marmottan-Monet, Paris, France
One of the best recent exhibits here
14 Oct, 2016

How do Monet, Holder and Munch approach snow, sun, night, water in their paintings? Parallels, comparisons, echoes are shown through a superb selection of paintings. Texts and panels are straight to the point and easy to understand. A very nice visit and not too long - for those who don’t want to spend hours in a museum. Congrats for this exhibit! Some cons: a bit packed (notably with the guided groups), and an effort must be done to attract younger audiences! One pro: a great shop with many items related to the exhibits or impressionism; and also a section exclusively for kids!

Picasso-Giacometti: Dialogue Between Two Masters
@ Picasso Museum, Paris, France
Can't go wrong with this one
14 Oct, 2016

I didn't realize until now the influence one artist had on the other - they must have had fun watching each other. The exhibit takes from the best works of each artist, the text on the wall is easy to read and the coffee I grabbed on the terrace after the show was delicious. Thumbs up!

Nice outing with the grandparents

Needless to say there are beautiful works in the show; I mostly enjoyed seeing the famous personalities of the day grouped together in his largest paintings. Otherwise it's a pretty quiet show for those who take their art appreciation super seriously.

It was two firsts for me: my first time at the Fondation Clément and first time seeing Henri Guédon. The museum and the exhibit goes to show the potential the Fondation Clément has to be a world-class exhibition space.

It was a busy show for a Sunday afternoon so moving around was a bit difficult. But the content gave great context and background on the creator of Tintin - everyone who buried their young noses in these comic books it's worth the visit.

There weren't a lot of visitors so it felt like an intimate look at Ritt's photos. It was a fun look at past generations of models and actors. Worth stopping by if you're in the Marais.

The artist gets you thinking about image vs. reality. The art's nice to look at but also interesting to hear how people around you interpret an umbrella with a glass full of water sitting on top of it...
