Nuit des musées 2017

Notice for nocturnal culture fans: nuit des musées is back on Saturday May 20, 2017. Had enough of the extortionate ticket prices for museums? Dont panic: on the night of Saturday May 20 2017, a sleuth of French institutions open their doors free of charge to the public for the 13th nuit des musées européenne.

10 unmissable exhibitions from Mois de la Photo 2017

Photography fans will have noticed that contrary to previous years, the Mois de la Photo is no longer in November. The 2017 edition has been moved forward to the spring, which is less busy with photographic events – even though fotofever arrives at the end of April. 

Studio Blumenfeld New York, 1960
Art

Studio Blumenfeld New York, 1960

Cité de la Mode et du Design presents more than a hundred photos, including some unseen, from great German photographer Erwin Blumenfeld. The softness of women’s bodies, boldly painted lips and nails, transparent veils shielding the faces of several femmes fatales or silver screen sirens. From Hitchcock to Wenders, here you can step into the magical world that Blumenfeld conveys in his photos.

The Art of DC - The dawn of Superheroes

Your child – and by this we are referring to a huge age bracket – as whether they are 4 or well into adolescence, they probably still do somersaults in their bedroom re-enacting Batman and ripping down curtains for Superman capes. In order to calm these rather mad antics, why not take them to "The Art of DC - The dawn of Superheroes" at the Ludique Art museum, where the entire team from DC comics is on show Hardcore fans will be pleased to know that they are nearly all there, with particular focus on some favourites.

Smallville Records Paris
Shopping

Smallville Records Paris

Passing by the window of this new boutique record store which opened in January this year, some will think of the comic-themed series from their childhood; whilst others will recognise the drawings of Stefan Marx, the blueprint for Hamburg’s techno and house label. 

Goku Asian Canteen
Restaurants

Goku Asian Canteen

A large wooden bar, stools, suspended lighting and a menu which promises to offer you ‘the four corners of Asia on a plate’ that being Japanese katsu chicken, Korean bibimbaps, Vietnamese boa buns and Thai pad thais. A mix of cuisine that a few people may find a little disconcerting, but that doesn’t really matter because we’ve come to Goku for one only excellent reason: the burger, voted as the best in France at the most recent French burger awards.
