Miró at the Grand Palais: de la couleur et du rythme!

At the Musée du Jeu de Paume, a real picture of the economic, social and political issues of the USA between 1933 and 1957 is formed through the vibrant works of Dorothea Lange, some famous and some unknown. “Politiques du visible” is the name of the exhibition paying tribute to the photographer who shaped our vision of America in the inter-war period. Until January 27th.
Monet, Degas, Caillebotte, Renoir, Rodin, Van Gogh, Vlaminck and many others are celebrated at the Musée Marmottan-Monet through an exhibition assembling exclusively works privately detained, thus never or rarely seen. Paintings, sculptures and drawings will lead you in a journey through the arts from Impressionism to Fauvism. Until February 10th.
Jean-Paul Gaultier has taken over the cabaret Folies Bergère for his “Fashion Freak Show” until April 21st.

Fifty years of pop culture, fantastic artists and fabulous costumes meet in this truly crazy show.
