The stunning Fondation Louis Vuitton will be home to some of modern art’s greatest hits until Feb 20. Russian collector, Sergei, Shchukin, was one of the 20th century’s prominent modern French art patrons, and 130 of his masterpieces are on view to the public. Head to the Bois de Boulogne for the “Icônes de l’art moderne. La collection Chtchoukine” exhibition and spend an afternoon amongst Picasso, Matisse, Gaugin, Monet, Renoir, and the like.
Next Tuesday may be the biggest night of the year. Yes, it’s infamous American Election Day. Enjoy film screenings and nibble on American culinary specialties while following the vote count amongst other Americans-in-Paris at Carreau du Temple for La Nuit Americane.
November promises several exciting arty events, but you’ll have to plan strategically; several are happening the weekend of November 10 – 13! We have Paris Photo at the Grand Palais, Fotofever at the Carrousel du Louvre, and Cutlog Edition 7 – Le Mois Particulier at Hotel Particulier Montmartre.
In need of a cool and carefree evening? Head to Point Éphémère on November 14th. Tel Aviv-based band, Lola March, combines airy and hypnotic vocals with a pop-electro beat for a dance-inducing sound.
We love a good open studios event and this month we’re turning our focus to Montmartre. From November 18 – 20, head to Abbesses for Portes Ouvertes. For more information on participants, head here.
