What’s going on in Paris Museums this Spring 2020
Paris in the spring is full of great things to do and see! While March and April aren’t always the warmest monts of the year, a museum might be just the thing. Here is a selection of great exhibitions to catch and museums to haunt this spring while waiting for the weather to warm up!
Musée d’Orsay James Tissot and the Monsters of Léopold Chauveau.
At the Orsay museum James Tissot is in the spotlight in the first exposition entirely dedicated to this artist of “ambiguous modernity” (beginning March 24, 2020). And beginning March 10, the curious monsters of Léopold Chauveau are allowed free reign, in the exhibit “The land of Monsters”
Experience Pompei at the Grand Palais
Pompei explored in 3D. This exhibit combines technology and archeology in an unique immersive experience. The visitor will see first hand how the magnificent city was before and the legendary natural disaster as it unfolded all in its horrifying details. March 25 to June 8, 2020.
Comics and Poetry at the Picasso museum
Two new exhibits which explore the artist’s interest in Comics and poetry. In the exhibit on comics the visitor will revel in the fine line drawings of the artist as he shares his passion for the genre. While in the exhibition on poetry, the relation between poetics and the creative process in the master’s art are brought into the fore.
They say you want a revolution
Well you know…
Flash back to the fertile period of the late sixties when changing the world was the collective goal shared by all. This immersive exhibit transports the visitor back to London, Paris, San Francisco and of course Woodstock during the richly creative and turbulent times of the late sixties. The Beatles said it was “going to be all right”. Sound familiar?
