November is photography month in Paris. Numerous events are happening over the upcoming four weeks, but one of our favorites is Paris Photo at the Grand Palais. Running November 9-12, it’s the world’s premier international art fair dedicated to the medium and this year’s edition will feature over 180 exhibitors.
Illustration is having a little renaissance at the moment. Perfect your skills with an instructive atelier with Marie Guillard at one of Paris’s hippest new addresses, The Hoxton, this Saturday.
Kpop and kimchi lovers are in luck this month. On November 11, the Association of Korean Residents of France is hosting the Festival Mondial du Kimchi. Head to the Mairie du 15ème for an afternoon of tastings, food trucks, Kpop dance demos, and more.
