5 exhibitions not to be missed this Autumn
Holidays are over, it’s time to get back to Paris. And to help ease you in gently to the return to work, LE BHV MARAIS brings you five exhibitions not to be missed under any circumstances. Move over sunbathing, bring on the culture!
Joann Sfar – Salvador Dali, One Second Before Awakening (Espace Dali)
No need to present Salvador Dali, leading figure in 20th century pictorial art, famous as much for his moustache as for his cubist and surrealist work. A bit closer to home: Joann Sfar, to whom we owe the brilliant Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life as well as The Rabbi’s Cat , will bewitch us with his drawings and sketches. For this exhibition, the French cartoonist has imagined a meeting with the Spanish artist.
From 9th September 2016 to 31st March 2017
Painting the Impossible: Hodler, Monet, Munch (Marmottan Monet Museum)
How do you represent snow? How do you depict the blaze of the sun or the twinkling of stars? These are just some of the many questions that these key painters of modern Europe asked themselves.
From 15th September 2016 to 1st June 2017
Hergé (Grand Palais)
Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock are taking over the Grand Palais to pay tribute to their creator, Hergé. On the agenda of this exhibition: Tintin of course, but there is also the opportunity to discover Hergé’s other creations, the man considered to be “the father of European cartoons”. Quick and Flukpe, and even Jo, Zette and Jocko will also be taking part.
From 28th September 2016 to 15th January 2017
Picasso-Giacometti (Picasso Museum)
A dialogue between two major artists of the 20th century through their prolific work. This exhibition brings to light the relationships, whether friendly, formal or iconographic, between these two men, even though their approach to art was sometimes different.
From 4th October to 5th February 2017
Coluche (Hôtel de Ville)
“Always rude, but never vulgar” To celebrate 30 years since his death, the Paris town hall is hosting an exhibition dedicated to Coluche at the Hôtel de Ville. It is, of course, an opportunity to look back over a life full of laughter, but also a chance to reflect on the struggles of this big-hearted artist.
From 7th October 2016 to 7th January 2017
Bonus: don’t miss this exhibition dedicated to 160 years of LE BHV MARAIS! Entitled “1856-2016: from the Hôtel de Ville Grand Bazar to LE BHV MARAIS”, this retrospective retraces the store’s history through the lens of various objects, document archives, interviews and photographs. A great way to look back over 160 years of success, but also to discover Paris and the Marais in black and white and sepia!
Until 1st October
