We do an exhibition at home
Want to contemplate the cliffs of Etretat painted by Monet or discover a great figure in the photo from your living room? French museums are coming to your home! At the Center Pompidou, we visit the latest exhibitions in video with an exhibition curator and we dive into the Blues of Miró, the famous triptych of the Catalan painter, with the first exhibition in virtual reality, in other words in complete freedom!
At the Jacquemart-André museum, it is a areopagus made up of the curator but also writers, actors and singers who guide us through the great retrospective dedicated to the master of watercolor JMW Turner. And on Facebook, we have a café-expo with the curator around the Cindy Sherman exhibition at La Fondation Louis Vuitton !
Still thirsty for culture? Treat yourself to a tête-à-tête with self-portraits, Dürer or Poussin during a visit of “Artist figures” at the Louvre museum or go up the Seine in the wake of the Impressionists between audio-guided tours of the “Nights electric “from MuMa and online exhibitions from the Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny, a story of navigating the heart of paintings and the” motif “dear to Monet and his followers!
We reserve a show in our living room
Choreographers, directors, actors, musicians, singers… Make room, they are coming to you! If you dream of sneaking behind the scenes, now is the time: with Théâtre à la table, La Comédie Française invites you every week to share the genesis of a play around the “gustatory pleasure of words”. A good appetizer before heading to Arte to attend an opera – one finds there among others, Hippolyte and Aricie de Rameau, the last creation of the Opéra-Comique , – or to dig into the ballets of the Théâtre de Chaillot.
And since the musicis a promise of escape, you choose your tempo with the Philharmonie de Paris : classical concerts played behind closed doors and sound archives to navigate from baroque to rap. To discover new nuggets, you can also tune in to the new stage created by the Théâtre de la Ville and the Trois Baudets or on Underscope @ Gaîté Lyrique for 100% electro musical and visual performances …
We play to cultivate ourselves
Being an architect to the King is not easy, you will see it when you try to complete the Palace of Versailles with the “Dream Architectures” animation. Perhaps you will be more comfortable as a private investigator? Get started with the online game “Crime at the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux”, you will browse the rooms in search of clues: look closely, they are also hidden in the works!
If the riddles inspire you, continue with “Les Mystères de Rennes” at the Musée de Bretagne, and its quizzes to learn all about the city, from its Art Deco swimming pool to its historic skyscraper or go to the Musée des Arts et Métiers to play with Lost in inventions: between velocipede and airplane, it is a question of restarting the time that stopped in 2947!
All you have to do is unravel the secrets of restoring works of art at the Fabre museum in Montpellier or the major principles of contemporary creation at the Center Georges Pompidou with its playful video game Prisme7.
Do you dream of broadening your horizons? Nothing like an online course to germinate the artist’s seed that lies dormant in you. We follow a conference on flora and jewelry at the Van Cleef & Arpels School of Jewelry Arts, a cinema masterclass with Horschamp or the Louis Lumière Institute or we draw in the online courses of The Artist Academy: become a photographer with Harcourt studio, stylist with Chantal Thomass or successful singer with Patrick Bruel, do you like it?
And to travel through the mysteries of art history, you revise your knowledge of Picasso or Impressionism with the MOOCs of the Grand Palais or you register for the Paris of Art, the history courses of the art of the museums of the city of Paris.
