Exhibition « Man Ray and Fashion » from 23 September 2020 to 17 January 2021 at the musée du Luxembourg, Paris.

When the American artist moved to Paris in the 1920s, he met the fashion designer Paul Poiret, for whom he began working on commission as a photographer. By applying to fashion photography the techniques and tricks he used in his artistic work, Man Ray contributed to considerably changing the treatment of fashion images.

Funny little creatures take over Orsay!
Exhibition « The Land of Monsters » from June 23 to September 13, 2020 at the Musée d’Orsay, Paris.
A doctor by trade, Léopold Chauveau (1870-1940) taught himself to sculpt around 1905, crafting funny, clumsy monsters from plaster, bronze or wood that drew on medieval European and Japanese ideas of the grotesque. He was also a prolific illustrator of children’s books.
Chauveau’s drawings and sculptures remained largely unknown during his lifetime. A large donation (from Chauveau’s grandson) of work to the Musée d’Orsay in 2017 brought his strange and singular universe to the limelight.

When Cars become Works of Art
Exhibition « Concept-Car. Beauté Pure », from November 29, 2019 to March 9, 2020, at Compiègne Castle, Compiègne.
The concept car is the motor vehicle in its closest form to the art object. This type of vehicle, which appeared in the 1910s, is generally a single model, produced for aerodynamic or styling studies or later for commercial promotion.
Major manufacturers, designers and master bodybuilders have produced this type of vehicle. Often destroyed after an ephemeral presentation during a season, some of these models have reached us.
The first exhibition dedicated to the Concept Car in France, it traces the genealogy of these unique objects through thirty vehicles on display as well as photographs, documents, preparatory drawings and models.

The art of portraying the Paris Opera
Exhibition « Degas at the Opera » from Septembre 24, 2019 to January 19, 2020 at Orsay Museum, Paris.
Throughout his entire career, from his debut in the 1860s up to his final works after 1900, the Opera formed the focal point of Degas’ output. It was his “own room”. He explored the theatre’s various spaces - auditorium and stage, boxes, foyers, and dance studios - and followed those who frequented them: dancers, singers, orchestral musicians, audience members, and black-attired subscribers lurking in the wings. This closed world presented a microcosm of infinite possibilities allowing all manner of experimentations: multiple points of view, contrasts of lighting, the study of motion and the precision of movement.
