Paris' new architecture museum

VuepalaisBeside the Louvre Pyramid and the Centre Pompidou (to name a few of the few), this labyrinth of narrow streets doesn't leave much room for new architectural projects. You may find your fix however, at the Cité de l'architecture et du patrimoine, also known as the Cité Chaillot, a newly opened museum in Paris displaying a variety of exhibitions on contemporary architecture -- both French and foreign -- including different approaches to town planning. You can also go for a virtual tour to discover the museum's different galleries. Also, in efforts to encourage thought on the matter, the museum regularly organizes conferences and debates.

Kitsuné: Rock Out

Pamela Price writing for I V Y Paris

I'm pretty comfy cozy within the Hip-Hop spectrum of New York City's night club scene but my breakdancing heels were not prepared for the Parisian dance club music.

Your body must be trained to endure electronic music for hours on end. If you're ipod rarely blasts these types of sounds, then the universe of Kitsuné will surely make you want to put your aviators on, pop your collar and do the 80's robot.

After taking a gander at the Kitsuné website it took me a good while to figure out exactly what Kitsuné was all about. It was either a chic and rad boutique, a general music site, or a compilation of DJ's and artists. Turns out Kitsuné is all of the above, and then some.

"Steichen: A Photographic Epic," - Jeu de Paume

Steichen7jpg

Sarah-Neel Smith writing for I V Y Paris

Is elegance exclusive? Edward Steichen's work suggests not. Over 400 images on display in “Steichen: A Photographic Epic” reveal a strong commitment to formal grace, though they range across the extremes of “high” and “low” art. Portraits, landscapes, documentary combat scenes, fashion spreads, and textile designs are all equally pristine. Some of his most beautiful photographs are of matchboxes.

“Ferdinand Hodler (1853 - 1918)” at the Musée d'Orsay

Sarah-Neel Smith writing for I V Y Paris


This month, Swiss artist Ferdinand Hodler gate-crashes the Musée d'Orsay, France's Pantheon to 19th and 20th century French art. With a formal style entirely different from any seen in France, and his low-key Symbolist leanings, Hodler's work just looks different.

Highlights from the Paris Photo Fair (November 15-18)

Sarah-Neel Smith writing for I V Y Paris

Last month, the FIAC and Show Off art fairs hit Paris with an onslaught of contemporary art. This week, Paris Photo is in town at the Carrousel du Louvre. So buckle up, art-lovers, there's no rest for the weary (until November 19).

Like FIAC and Show Off, Paris Photo is a commercial fair where galleries and publishers come to sell their wares. (To be precise: 104 exhibitors, from 23 countries, are selling the work of 500-some artists.) Artworks date from the 19th century through today. Turning a corner, one is as likely to run across a Vogue spread by Annie Leibowitz, as the work of a 19th century Italian who dressed his models like cardinals and photographed them in slapstick situations.
