Le Musée de la Chasse

This museum is one of the most unique exhibit spaces in Paris. It was not intended to be a museum, which effects the flow and the content of the space. The exhibit serves as an homage to the art of hunting. The taxidermy is incredible. Once again, the experience is unsettling yet painstakingly interesting. The…

Louvre

After 3 months in Paris, I thought I made it out of the clear. I would avoid the Louvre at all costs. However, I was peer pressured to go when a group of friends came to visit. It was just as horrible as I imagined, but at least it’s free. Upon descending into the underworld…

Palais de Tokyo: Philippe Parreno

“Anywhere, Anywhere Out of the World” by Philippe Parreno is an incredible and overwhelming exhibition that is currently showing at Palais de Tokyo. I have seen the exhibit twice and both times served as it’s own distinct experience. Upon walking in the audience is immediately confronted with a giant luminous sign displaying cost, hours, and…

Oh Me Oh Marais: 3 Galleries in 3 Blocks

Galerie Yvon Lambert, a set on Flickr. Galerie Yvon Lambert: Galerie Yvon Lambert was one of the more underwhelming galleries I have been to in Paris. Although the gallery lies behind a grand door, catercorner to a quaint building with green vines adorning it’s walls, the gallery was nothing out of the ordinary. Yvon Lambert…

When you walk through the massive door, through the reception, you…

Galerie Perrotin

Galerie Perrotin is currently exhibiting work by Michael SAILSTORFER, Claude RUTAULT, Sun YUAN & Peng YU, and Paola PIVI. This gallery was my favorite of the three I visited. From the mouse elevator to the interesting passage ways and doors, the viewing experience at Perrotin is nothing but mondane. Right when you walk into the gallery…

Galerie Yvon Lambert

Although the gallery lies behind a grand door, catercorner to a quaint building with green vines adorning it’s walls, the gallery was nothing out of the ordinary. Yvon Lambert is currently exhibiting BERTRAND LAVIER Walt Disney Productions. Safe to…

Orange is the New Orsay

The Musee l’Orangerie is currently setting up for an exhibition that will open in early October, so instead I reviewed the museum as a whole. If you’re looking for a place to experience impressionist and post impressionist works of art, l’Orangerie is one of the best places to go. At the d’Orsay the amount of…

“State of Play” Day

Located on Rue Quincampoix, home to many modern art galleries, Agnes B is currently showing an impressive and overwhelming street art exhibit. The title “Etat des Lieux,” meaning “State of Play,” completely encapsulates the works scaling the walls and ceiling. From walking into hidden gallery on is immersed in saturated colors, themes, and 3-d art….
