Exhibitions

Until March 10th, Pierre et Gilles are back at Galerie Templon with a new exhibition, Le temps imaginaire. An ode to tolerance and freedom, imagined like a journey through the universe of this glamorous artistic duet.

Until July 8th, the Musée Marmottan Monet is presenting Corot, an exhibition gathering around sixty portrait works, a production the painter kept secret, loaned by the most prestigious public and private collections in Europe and the United States.

The Maison de Victor Hugo is hosting the exhibition La folie en tête. Four collections from psychiatric hospitals exhibit the works of artists suffering from mental illnesses, collected by psychiatrists interested in the bridges between art and therapy.
