Exhibitions

A bit of MoMA comes to us at the Fondation Louis Vuitton with a one-of-its-kind exhibition, Being modern: MoMa in Paris. 200 masterpieces of the famous New-York museum, from Abstract Expressionism to Pop Art will take you to a century-long journey through a path adapted to the architecture and spaces of the Foundation.  Until March 5th.

Until February 11th, the Musée National Picasso recounts, through the exhibition Picasso 1932, the painter’s life during a full year of creations. The museum invites you to follow Picasso’s path day after day to understand both his creative process and his personal life in 1932.

At the Musée de l’Orangerie, Dada Africa is an exhibition bringing together African, Native American and Asian works alongside those of the Dadaists – Hanna Höch, Jean Arp, Man Ray and many others. It shows how this social art rejecting the traditional values of civilization appropriated the cultural forms of non-western societies. Until February 19th.

 

Opera

From January 13th to 30th, The Palais Garnier has scheduled Jephtha by Haendel, directed by Claus Guth. This oratorio is interweaving grief‑stricken voices, as they confront an apocalyptic situation relating the reckless promise of Jephtha to God Almighty: in case of victory, the sacrifice of the first creature he will encounter on his way back.  

 

Ballet

 During the Nordic Festival from January 16th to 27th, the Théâtre National de Chaillot has scheduled a demanding selection of shows from Island, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark, all themed on our togetherness.
