This retrospective of César Baldaccini at Centre Pompidou is one of the most anticipated of the year.
The Paris hotel game is competitive. Guest houses, hostels, 5* palaces, Airbnb. This mindfield means you can never really be sure you’re getting the best experience for your buck. You’re done with the hostel life, hotels are too same-same and Airbnbs are often rather different when you turn up… so, what else is there? Well, Paris Boutik has created something that’s bang in between the two. The luxury and originality of a boutique hotel, with the intimacy and freedom of an Airbnb. Plus, these places are about as original as they come. How often do you get to stay in an actual bookshop or vintage food store? La Librairie, in the heart of the Marais (next door to the Marché des Enfants Rouges and Carreau du Temple etc) is a bookworm's paradise. A huge space for two (but with room for 4), you can sleep in amongst 4500 tomes. There’s a small kitchen with the essentials, a Nespresso machine for that all important wake up, plus a microwave, mini-fridge, and utensils to eat meals around the table. A clean and bright bathroom will put those suspect Airbnb showers to shame and the bed promises to be more comfortable than your own. The shelves hold several old and rare books, and there’s unique comic book art decorating the walls. It’s safe to say, Paris Boutik now own the hashtag #bookporn. The suite used to be a former hotel (as the entrance tiles will tell you), and the company have kept the beautiful beams and parquet floor, so it feels that much more Parisian. And like a gen

Featuring over 200 works from the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, "Being Modern: MoMA in Paris" is a celebration of the institution’s role in 20th and 21st century art. The New York giant has chosen Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris’ futuristic art museum, to host the exhibition which runs from October 11 to March 5, 2018. Spread over 3 floors, "Being Modern" is as starry as you’d expect with big names including Andy Warhol, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Edward Hopper, René Magritte, Walker Evans, Paul Cézanne…nearly every wall has a head-turner. But there are some surprises in the mix, including a diverse range of immersive pieces. Don’t miss Roman Ondak’s interactive performance work Measuring the Universe - an entire room where visitors can be measured and write their names and the date next to it. Echoing the recording of children’s heights, the installation will remain for the duration of the exhibition. Janet Cardiff’s The Forty Part Motet - an audio installation that worked with the Salisbury Cathedral Choir - is a climatic finish. "Being Modern" traces the museum’s chronology from its opening in 1929, tracing key moments in its journey and monumental exhibitions, such as Edward Hopper’s House by the Railroad which was the first major painting acquired by the museum. Add to that museum developments, gifted collections, and background on its three founding ladies: Lillie P. Bliss, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller and Mary Quinn Sullivan. The exhibition shows work that is embl
