Parisian exhibitions you must not miss
Published on 5 February 2019, dans Exhibitions & Museum
If you’re planning a stay in Paris at the beginning of the year, we strongly advise you to book your room at the Hotel Jacques de Molay, a warm and welcoming establishment that guarantees you excellent value for money. Nestled in the Marais district, the hotel's location is also convenient for various cultural experiences in the French capital. If you’re interested in art exhibitions, here is our top 3 recommendations for February.
Paul Sérusier at the Orsay Museum
This temporary exhibition will be held from January 29th to June 2nd, 2019 at the Musée d'Orsay, level 0, Lille gallery, room 10. Admire the famous painting The Talisman, a highly experimental work completed in 1888 by Paul Sérusier, a somewhat marginalised creator who many art lovers have yet to discover. The exhibition consists of 5 sections highlighting the artist, his vision and his work.
A rare Victor Vasarely retrospective
Among the exhibitions in Paris not to be missed in the first half of this year is the first major retrospective in France to be devoted to Victor Vasarely, taking place at the Pompidou Centre from February 6th to May 6th. This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to discover the chronological and thematic development of the famous Hungarian-French artist whose eye-deceiving visual works made him a pioneer of the Op Art movement.
Calder and Picasso at the Picasso Museum
There’s a wonderful opportunity to view nearly 120 works by two artistic greats of the 20th century at the Musée National Picasso from February 19th to August 25th, 2019. This exhibition offers an intriguing perspective on how the occasional collaborators Alexander Calder and Pablo Picasso treated the concept of negative space in their works and examines the similarities and differences in their respective approaches.
