3 cities = 3 Christmas exhibitions

As the snow starts falling, Art-Trope suggests 3 exhibitions in 3 cities to celebrate the end of 2017. Enjoy those beautiful moments shared with your family to explore the Festival du Merveilleux at the Fairground Museum in Paris, to wander around the Brancusi exhibition at the Guggenheim museum in New York and to admire the golden exhibition of the National Gallery of London.

From December 26th, 2017 to January 7th, 2018, the Fairground Museum hosts the 8th edition of the Festival du Merveilleux. Such an invitation to dream is also the occasion to discover the museum curated by private collector Jean-Paul Favand. Effectively, he shares his enchanted inner world, full of rides and fairground Arts. As a result, the 8th edition of the festival is built around the theme “Invisible Musicians”. In fact, the museum converted into a gigantic 86 000 square meters music box. Ancient musical instruments especially restored for the occasion are part of the curation. Performer Artists are also included in the festival and will support the exhibition.

From December 15th, 2017 to January 3rd ,2018, the New York Guggenheim museum dusts out its collections to display great Artworks of Artist and sculptor Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957). Friend with Marcel Duchamp, Fernand Léger and Amedeo Modigliani, Brancusi was one the main sculptors in Modern Art. In fact, he managed to develop an original Artistic statement through a surprising match. Indeed, he combined folk motifs from his native Romania with abstract forms. It produced some of the masterpieces of 20th century Art. The Guggenheim collections also include photographs of the Artists’ own sculptures as well as his studio. Such images go with the show.

London: a golden Christmas at the National Gallery

To celebrate the New Year the National Gallery of London proposes multi-faceted exhibitions under the theme of gold. As a result, “Golden Christmas” is a multiform program that includes talks, events and exhibitions focusing on the Art of gilding and the importance of gold in Art history. Effectively, the emphasis is laid on the techniques related to gold, used by several Artists from all periods of time. Among those Artists, there are Jacopo di Cione, Nardo di Cione and Andrea Mantegna. The talks series also includes a presentation by Matthew Morgan focusing on Nicolas Poussin’s Artwork entitled “The Adoration of the Golden Calf” on December 20th, 2017.

Let’s meet again in January 2018 to keep following daily the news of the Fine Arts market as well as our Art-Trope Artists.
