Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
As the new school year rolls around, the galleries of Paris are getting ready to teach us a lesson in how to stage an exhibition. Autumn is always a strong season for art, but this year's programme is especially distinguished. The heavyweight venues lead the pack with their big headline exhibitions: Centre Pompidou welcomes retrospectives on French sculptor César and British painter David Hockney. Grand Palais ushers in Irving Penn and Gauguin. The Philharmonie hosts a fitting tribute to French singing icon Barbara and Astérix author René Goscinny is commemorated at Musée d’Art et d’Histoire du Judaïsme.
There's an emphasis on fashion this year with big tributes to Irving Penn at Grand Palais, colossal Dior exhibition at Musée des Arts Décoratifs, and Medusa at Musée d'Art Moderne. Whichever you choose - and we advise you check them all out - you won't be disappointed with autumn's artistic offerings.
