The Pavillon Carré de Baudoin welcomes until December 23rd the exhibition Dans la place. Dedicated to 13 artists – emerging or recognized – from the Villa Belleville, the curation was entrusted to Stéphane Corréard (from Piasa). The plurality of works and styles follow this cosmopolitan and popular neighborhood’s image, with a strong desire to disrupt the codes of the Fine Arts market, such as the Franco-Algerian artists Neil Beloufa and Mohamed Bourouissa.

New York : Rodin – Metropolitan Art Museum (until January 15th, 2018)

La Porte de l'Enfer by Auguste Rodin, built 1880-90

This exhibition is an homage to the centenary of Auguste Rodin’s death, the precursor of modern sculpture. The Met presents a scenography mixing its most famous sculptures, as well as drawings, important in the process of creation. The art of sculpture starts with a preparatory work on paper. Visitors who have enjoyed the collections of Rodin Museums in Paris and Meudon will be surprised to discover its unique pieces.

London : Modigliani – Tate Modern (November 23th, 2017 – April 2nd, 2018)

Oil on canvas entitled "Nu assis" by Amedeo Modigliani in 1909

Amedeo Modigliani, Nu assis, 1909

From Tuscany to Paris, Amedeo Modigliani developed a prolific art (more than 50,000 works) strongly influenced by cubism, and the “blue period” of his Spanish contemporary, Pablo Picasso. Between 1909 and 1914, he devoted himself entirely to sculpture, before adopting the portrait, which became his best-known genre. This exhibition is a true panorama of all the kinds of works he produced during his artistic career, and shows the incredible evolution of this artist considered as the “young damned artist” of his generation.
