Paris je t’aime - official partner 2024
If a building becomes architecture, then it is art
Four Parisian exhibitions
There are dozens of museums in Paris, hundreds of galleries and countless works of art that can be seen around every corner... Each institution has its own program and invites us to discover its exhibitions, which change very often. In short, it's easy to get lost in all this news. So what to see, where to go, what to do?
In honor of the restoration of Van Eyck's masterpiece "Madonna of Chancellor Rolin", the Louvre Museum is organizing an exceptional exhibition bringing together the largest number of works by the artist ever presented in France!
The entire exposition of the project "Meeting with a Masterpiece" will be built around the Madonna, the purpose of which is to tell about the influence of Jan van Eyck's work on European art in general. It includes sixty objects: painted panels, manuscripts, drawings, bas-reliefs, gold and silver objects.
The Pompidou Center dedicates a rich and beautiful exhibition to the artist Konstantin Brancusi. This is an incredible opportunity to discover all the diversity of his work: sculptures, as well as photographs, drawings and films. Exhibition brings together about 400 works, including more than 120 sculptures, and visitors will be able to see the entire career of this influential and innovative artist, from his beginning and arrival in Paris in 1904 at the age of 28, to his great successes and the most controversial works, including the famous "Princess X", which caused a scandal on The Salon of Independents in 1920.
From spring to autumn 2024, the Museum of Decorative Arts and the Museum of Architecture will collaborate to create two parts of the history of the creation of department stores in Paris, starting in 1852 and to the present day.

Starting with the opening of the stores Le Bon Marché, Les Magasins du Louvre, Le Printemps, La Samaritaine and Les Galeries Lafayette, the exhibition will demonstrate the importance of this new style of trade, as well as talk about the importance of architectural design for consumer perception, outstanding exterior facades, grand interiors and the placement of goods in department stores throughout France and Europe.
150 years ago, on April 15, 1874, the first Impressionist exhibition opened in Paris. Right now on the exhibition «Paris 1874 Inventing Impressionism» painters «hungry for independence»: Monet, Renoir, Degas, Morizot, Pissarro, Sisley and Cezanne finally decided to free themselves from the rules by holding their own exhibition, outside the official channels: Impressionism was born. To celebrate this anniversary, the Orsay Museum presents about 130 works and brings a fresh perspective to this key date, which is considered the day of the beginning of the impressionism.

I hope now we have convinced you to go to Paris!
