April Events in Paris: Beer Week, Urban Art Fair, Gilles Peterson & More

April Events in Paris: Paris Beer Week, Gilles Peterson in Concert, Exhibitions, and More!

Paris Beer Week, Clément Leriche

Until April 9th, the Musée de Minéralogie is hosting an exhibition of British artist Amy Hilton’s work. As the museum name might suggest, Hilton’s subject of choice is very much nature-based and the aesthetic ethereal and soft. There’s an interesting calming effect to viewing her work, one we could all use a bit of. And not surprisingly, I first learned of Amy Hilton via the wonderful Seymour Magazine.

Finding Your Creativity in Paris with SEYMOUR+

HiP Paris blog. Interior of SEYMOUR+ space.Camille Malissen

When I moved to Paris six years ago, one of the greatest things that happened to me was meeting Melissa Unger. A fellow New Yorker, Melissa also had French blood and California cool. She was gregarious, generous, genuine, and a little bit wild. She had confidence and grace in equal measure, and very clear convictions along with the ability to articulate them. As our friendship developed over the years, I was witness—more recently, from 3000 miles away, back in New York—to her mining her beliefs to create something pretty amazing, especially for Paris, where the cynics run free.

It started in 2011, when Melissa launched Seymour Projects, a not-for-profit organization committed to helping individuals cultivate self-expression by encouraging them to balance technological stimuli with internal exploration. As of January of this year, it evolved into a physical space called SEYMOUR+. Making good on its founding philosophy, SEYMOUR+ gives the general public a physical place to disconnect from technology and other external distractions in order to reconnect with their imagination and intuition—a spa for the mind, if you will. It’s a concept that is wholly unique and yet totally natural. Here, Melissa shares her journey to opening the most innovative space in Paris.
