Must-see Exhibitions

With the coming of spring, it's time to go out in Paris! Painting, sculpture, photography ... beauty is everywhere!

- Musée du Louvre - Veermer et les maitres de la peinture de genre

The essential exhibitions

In partnership with the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the National Gallery of Ireland, the Musée du Louvre presents the exhibition "Vermeer and masters of genre painting" until May 12. Alongside twelve paintings of the master of Delft, those of Gérard Dou, Gerard ter Borch, Frans Van Mieris, among many others, bear witness to the richness of genre painting in the 17th century.

From 22 March to 31 July, the Grand Palais pays tribute to the monumental work of Rodin on the centenary of the sculptor's death. "Rodin - The Centennial Exhibition" emphasises the power of his art and the influence it continues to have on today's artists.

Meanwhile, the Musée du Quai Branly offers a route into the heart of "African Routes". Until November 12, a great variety of works, from rock engravings to contemporary pieces, shows how Africa is an integral part of world history, traced by the multiple exchanges maintained at all times with other continents.

The Foundations: Journeys in time

From April 19 until October, the "Autophoto" exhibition at the Cartier Foundation depicts the thrilling rapprochement between the car and photography. More than 400 images allow us to glimpse the way in which the automobile has influenced the way artists look at the world.

Africa is honoured at the Louis Vuitton Foundation which unveils its recent acquisitions and which, until May 21, exhibits part of the collection of Jean Pigozzi, who was one of the first to take an interest in the works of artists from African countries.

"From drawing to painting in the century of Rembrandt" at the Custodia Foundation brings together the drawings of the Dutch painters of the 17th century and the paintings that blossomed from them. Studies, sketches, and drawings show how artists created a repertory in which to realise their most beautiful works.

If you are interested in the history of the video game and the way in which it has invaded our everyday life, you must check out the EDF Foundation. Their exhibition "Game - A history of the video game" traces the forty-five years of history of this most addictive of pastimes.

As for the Parisian galleries...

The Daniel Templon Gallery, rue de Beaubourg, hosts until May 13th the electric sculptures and optical phenomenon by the Chilean artist, Ivan Navarro. Works that subtly mix play and political issues.

In the Marais, the Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac presents "Objects", a collection of works by Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1989). Assemblages of objects and photographic montages testify to the singular and often iconoclastic creativity of the American artist.

A few steps away, in the MFC-Michèle Didier Gallery, "Stories/writings" shows the publications of ten artists who have written about works as diverse as performance, video, installation.
