Icons of Modern Art: The Shchukin Collection
PARIS, FRANCE  •  Fondation Louis Vuitton  •  22 October 2016 - 20 February 2017
 
Fondation Louis Vuitton presents the exhibition Icons of Modern Art: The Shchukin Collection. The show pays tribute to one of the greatest art patrons of the early 20th century, Sergei Shchukin, the visionary Russian collector of French modern art. From 1898, Sergei Shchukin, a leading Moscow industrialist, quickly became an integral member of the Parisian arts milieu of the era, forging relationships with modern art dealers Paul Durand-Ruel, Ambroise Vollard, and Berthe Weill, then Georges Bernheim and Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler. His friendship with celebrated artists like Henri Matisse heavily influenced the formation of his collection, one of the most radical of its time.

130 works are exhibited in this exhibition including works by Picasso (29), Matisse (22), Gauguin (12), Monet (8), Cezanne (8) and Malevich (8).

Rodrigo Braga: Inland Sea
PARIS, FRANCE  •  Palais de Tokyo  •  1 October - 18 December 2016
 
 

For his first solo exhibition in France, which opens as part of Nuit Blanche 2016, Rodrigo Braga (born in 1976 in Manaus, Brazil, lives in Rio de Janeiro) is occupying the ornamental pond on the esplanade between Palais de Tokyo and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. His monumental installation reveals tangible traces of the prehistoric sea that covered the French capital some 45 million years ago.

Invited to make use of the mineral landscape of the esplanade of Palais de Tokyo, Rodrigo Braga has created an enclaved sea, from which limestone rocks emerge. These sandy-coloured stones, with their familiar appearance, come from quarries used for the construction of a large number of buildings in Paris. Crisscrossed with concave and convex fossil markings, they bear witness to the teeming aquatic life that thrived in the basin of Paris, several million years ago.

“I work on the capacity of human beings to create systems that relate, modify or extract from nature, and thus I realize that, even when in contradiction with it, we are part of its changing cycle.”

Rodrigo Braga

The Spectacular Second Empire, 1852-1870
PARIS, FRANCE  •  Musée d’Orsay  •  27 September 2016 - 15 January 2017
 
A regime denigrated in its time and held in contempt after its fall, the Second Empire was, for a long time, associated with the decadence and superficiality of the "fête impériale". Against a background of social unrest, this prosperous era was a time of splendour and of economic euphoria, of ostentation and numerous lavish celebrations that are worth revisiting.
It was also a period of moral and aesthetic crisis, torn between the old cultural frameworks and the new practices, between increasingly excessive decoration and the quest for the real - conflicting currents that determined much of French artistic creation in the 1850s and 1860s.

To celebrate its 30th anniversary in autumn 2016, the Musée d’Orsay is looking at the entertainments and festivities of the Second Empire and at the different "stages" on which our modernity was invented. The exhibition’s thematic lay-out, with paintings, sculptures, photographs, architectural drawings, objets d’art and jewellery side by side, creates a portrait of this prolific and brilliant era, so rich in contradictions.

René Magritte: La trahison des images
PARIS, FRANCE  •  Centre Georges Pompidou  •  21 September 2016 - 23 January 2017
 

The exhibition Magritte: La trahison des images aims to offer a completely new approach to the work of the Belgian artist René Magritte. Featuring both well-known masterpieces and other less familiar works, all drawn from leading public and private collections, it offers a fresh look at one of the key figures of Modern art.

The latest in the series of monographic exhibitions the Centre Pompidou has devoted to major figures in 20th-century art ¬– “Edward Munch: L’œil moderne”, “Matisse: Paires et séries” and “Duchamp: La peinture, même” – this exhibition brings together around one hundred paintings, drawings and documents offering a fresh approach to the painter. “Magritte: La trahison des images” explores the artist’s interest in philosophy, an interest that would culminate in the publication of Foucault’s Ceci n’est pas une pipe (1973), born out of the writers discussions with the artist.
