Art and Cultural Events Ongoing in France October 2007
There are several interesting art and
cultural events currently on display in
France.  If you are near any of these,
they would certainly be worth a look.

In Paris there is an exposition at the
Grand Palais showing 300 design
objects from the past 200 years (see
event poster on left).  The items
include furniture, fashion, art works,
and architecture.  One can compare
and contrast design concepts from this
extended period.  The event will be on
display through January 7th.
In Lyon is the biennial exhibition of international contemporary art which will be
on display at four different locations:  La Sucrière, the Musée d’Art
Contemporain, the Bullukian Foundation and the Villeurbanne Institut d’Art
Contemporain.  For this year’s event about 60 curators each chose one artist
or work which they considered “essential to this decade.”  The event started
on 19 September and will continue until January 6, 2008.  The expo is open
from noon until 7pm every day except Mondays.  It will also be closed on
Christmas and New Year’s Day.  The web site for this event is http://www.
biennale-de-lyon.org.
If you are near Nice, the
Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul
will host an exhibition honoring
Barcelona and its contribution to
the world of modern art starting
with Joan Miró, whose first show in
Paris was at the Galerie Maeght in
1947, to young Catalan artists of
today.  , The Maeght Foundation
is an exceptional site that contains
one of the most important
collections in Europe, with
