Revisited Italian painting, photography, thematic pop-up store ... The program of the weekend is high.
From Murakami to Tolkien via Studio Ghibli, cultural events spread Paris. Let's start with Takashi Murakami who made his home at the Galerie Perrotin with BAKA, his new exhibition. Presenting no less than thirty works, the artist shows us all facets of his art through portraits, sculptures and tondo, all revealing new subjects such as traditional Chinese art. Open until 21 December, the BAKA exhibition is a must in the cultural agenda. Go to the ballroom of the Perrotin Gallery at 60 rue de Turenne.
To travel in Middle Earth, you will have to go to the BnF and discover the work of J.R.R Tolkien, mythical author and professor of Oxford (we would have liked to be his students). Through 300 pieces, enter into the creative world of the man and the author, oscillating between manuscripts and original drawings. A dive in the heart of an exceptional universe that finds a particular resonance today. Escape for a few hours during the exhibition Tolkien, trip to the middle ground at the BnF - Quai Francois Mauriac, 75706 Paris - until February 16, 2020.
As winter approaches, comforting things are needed, so the Studio Ghibli pop-up store is perfect for that ! In honor of the imagination of Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, the co-founders of Studio Ghibli, Le Château Ephémère will sell a host of derivative products from animation films. Totoro teddy bears, DVDs, posters, figurines and other surprises are to be discovered until December 15 - perfect for Christmas - at 19 rue Grégoire de Tours in the 6th arrondissement of Paris.
More street, the exhibition of Hassan Hajjaj at the MEP (Maison européenne de la photographie) will not fail to visually upset you. Explosion of colors and sensitive subjects are at the heart of this exhibition tracing years of work in the form of photos, installations, videos but also decoration. A lifestyle work that takes root in Hassan Hajjaj's love for clothing, fashion codes and the subjects of identity through issues of tradition and the body. Immersive and exotic, this exhibition takes you right into the streets of Morocco but not only. Go to the MEP - 5/7 rue de Fourcy 75004 Paris - before November 17 to see it for yourself.
Simultaneously with the Louvre exhibition devoted to Leonardo da Vinci, Fluctuart launches VENI, VIDI, VINCI, l'art urbain face au génie. A sharp revisit on the occasion of 500 years of Leonardo da Vinci's death, major artist for Renaissance art, orchestrated by twenty international artists like Madame, Ozmo, Swoon, Sylvain Ristori, Faith 47 or Bom.K. Obviously the list is not complete, it leaves a little mystery. Urban art becomes the vector of a new reading of the work of Leonardo da Vinci that you will be able to see at Fluctuart - Pont des Invalides, 2 port du Gros Caillou 75007 Paris - until February 19, 2020.
Impossible not to find happiness with all these good Parisian cultural plans.
