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!

Good exhibit perhaps a bit French-oriented
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.

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
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
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

15 Nov, 2016

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
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
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!

Effective, relevant, sobering

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.

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!

So many masterpieces in one exhibit
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
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.

As the exhibit description says, it forces "us to become a critical observers, unable to passively lose ourselves in the spectacle". This show succeeds in doing just that.

Learning more about Hergé's work, style and inspiration about his main life work was both insightful and a step back into childhood!
