Here is a round-up of exhibitions in Paris starting in January/February 2015. I'm particularly excited about visiting the playful buttons exhibition at Les Arts Décoratifs. And with all of the events commemorating the 70th anniversary of the liberation of concentration camps by the Allies this year, the exhibition of films made by the Soviets of the war at the Mémorial de la Shoah seems particularly timely.
Check out my Cultural Calendar page to see a large selection of exhibitions currently on!
Musée du Louvre (Paris 1er): This exhibition is the final installment of the "American Encounters" series, and it provides an opportunity to foster dialogue on American painting, by exploring the rise of still-life painting during the 19th century.
Mémorial de la Shoah (Paris 4e): To mark the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII and the liberation of the camps by the Allies, this exhibition presents images the Soviets filmed on the entire Eastern front, most of which have never been seen before.
A large batch of great exhibitions are closing their doors this month. Be sure to catch them before they end! I would especially recommend visiting Contact at the newly opened Fondation Louis Vuitton, Garry Winogrand at the Jeu de Paume and Voyager au Moyen-Âge at the Musée de Cluny. The exhibition on Love Letters at the Musée des Lettres et Manuscrits could be a fun Valentine's Day outing!
Musée Maillol (Paris 7e): This exhibition offers a glimpse of this powerful family, as wells at the major protagonists of the period (princes, philosophers, scientists and theologians).
