Dolce Vita? From the Liberty to Italian Design (1900-1940)
PARIS  •  Musée d’Orsay  •  14 April - 13 September 2015
 
In Italy in the early twentieth century the decorative arts were used to interpret the desire for progress of a nation that had only just found its unity. Cabinetmakers, ceramicists and glass-makers all worked together with the leading artists, creating a veritable "Italian style".

This period of extraordinary creativity is recalled through around a hundred works in a chronological display. The "Liberty" style, which came into its own at the turn of the century, is recalled with designs by Carlo Bugatti, Eugenio Quarti and Federico Tesio mixed with works by the Divisionist painters. A second section is devoted to Futurism, its

Gold and Ivory: Paris, Pisa, Florence, Siena. 1250–1320
LENS  •  Musée du Louvre-Lens  •  27 May - 28 September 2015
 

The 2015 summer exhibition at the Louvre-Lens highlights the wealth of artistic exchanges between the capital of the Kingdom of France and what is now Tuscany in the latter half of the 13th century. Thanks to exceptional loans from around twenty European museums, the exhibition lifts the veil on the relationships between the major centers of artistic creation of the period: Paris, Florence, Siena, and Pisa.

The exhibition brings together more than 125 works that reveal the influence of French exponents of the Rayonnant style on the Tuscan sculptors and painters of the late 13th century, within a cultural area that would become the cradle of the early Renaissance.

Mona Hatoum
PARIS  •  Centre Pompidou  •  24 June - 28 September 2015
 
After staging the first museum exhibition dedicated to Mona Hatoum's work twenty years ago, the Centre Pompidou is now devoting its first major monograph exhibition to her, featuring a hundred-odd pieces, and covering the multidisciplinary aspect of her work from 1977 to 2015. Without any chronological order, similar to a "map" of her career path, the exhibition provides audiences with a journey through the Palestinian-born British artist's output based on formal affinities between the works. Thus, the performances of the Eighties, whether documented in photos, drawings or videos, are seen in relation to installations, sculptures, drawings, photographs and objects dating from the late Eighties to the present day.
