To discover in May

Exhibitions
Until August 1st, the Centre Pompidou brings a new light on the gigantic and fundamental work of the Modern painter Paul Klee with over 250 pieces assembled around 7 themes in the exhibition : « L’ironie à l’œuvre ». Centered around the Romantic concept of irony, it underlines the importance of Klee’s duality in the understanding of his work, as well as how he saw his peers. Mythic pieces are presented, some for the first time in France!

« L’art et l’enfant – Chefs d’œuvre de la peinture française » brings together until July 3rd rare paintings from the 15th to the 20th century, from Greuze, Fragonard, Corot, Monet, Matisse, Picasso and many others! This exhibition is a true event and gives us the opportunity to discover major artworks in a new light at the Musée Marmottan-Monet. It highlights the evolution of the status of children over this 5-century span and raises the question of the influence of children drawings on the avant-garde.

Musical
After its great success in 2014, the musical Love Circus is back on the stage of Les Folies Bergère. Enjoy this show full of joy and good mood, interpreted by a fabulous company of dancers, singers and acrobats. Wonderful décor and costumes, wild choreographies… This show will give you a lot of energy and make your eyes sparkle! Until June 12th.
