Exhibitions
Architecture and drawing lovers, make sure to visit the exhibition « Peupler les cieux » at the Musée du Louvre. From the conception to the decoration of ceilings, drawing has always played a central role and inspired many French artists and painters, from Simon Vouet to Charles le Brun’s students. The projects of Palais Mazarin, Palais du Louvre and even of the disappeared Tuileries palace are presented with explanations all through the exhibition. Until May 19th.

May the force be with you! This is the theme of « Star Wars Identity », an interactive exhibition dedicated to George Lucas’ Saga, presenting 200 costumes and original pieces, and giving us the opportunity to explore our personality through an original animated adventure. At the Cité du Cinéma, until June 30th.

Ballet
The Palais Garnier proposes a combination of contemporary ballets, created by two pioneers of modern dance: « Mademoiselle Julie » by Birgit Cullberg and « Fall River Legend » by Agnès De Mille. Two pieces for a moment made tragic and poignant by the bodies in movement and the passion of their tortured characters. « Cullberg / De Mille », until March 30th.

Restaurants
The event of the year for the gastronomy lovers is the release of the famous Red Guide by Michelin. Its 2014 edition has just been published! This year again, many Parisian restaurants have been awarded with stars. Here is our short list:

The Hotel Particulier, a Parisian ambition

Written by james, the 10 October in category What’s up?, 0 comment

Until the 12th of February, the “Cité de l’Architecture“, inside the Palais de Chaillot at the Trocadero square, introduces an unusual but thrilling exhibition called “ L’Hôtel particulier, une ambition parisienne” (“The Townhouse, a Parisian ambition”) that takes you through an interactive path. Go inside, and you’ll discover how the Hotel Particulier, which is a constituent element of the architectural personality of Paris, evolved throughout the centuries, and inside the different neighbourhoods of Paris. You’ll find a reconstruction in 3D of a small hotel between yard and garden, a chronological path, thematic readings such as the link that exists between the hotels and the cities, but also touch screens that allow you to visualize hotels maps and their organization… More than just a simple tour, this exhibition offers you a real immersion, as well as a new angle to recount the history of Paris. Nearby, the Saint James Paris recommends you more particularly to go to this very unusual and very Parisian exhibition. From the sophisticated atmosphere of the only chateau-hotel in Paris, you’ll progressively move, within a few minutes, to the hushed feeling of a “hôtel particulier”. Unique in Paris!
