Anyone who is interested in art or artisanal professions should make sure to check out one huge event that is happening in Paris from April 4 to April 6, 2014. The event is called the European Arts Career Days (‘Les Journées Européennes des Métiers d’Art’), and it allows the public at large to access spaces that are normally kept private. From art ateliers to museums and theaters, visitors to Paris can learn about the art world in a whole new way.
Guests staying at the Hôtel Louvre Marsollier can benefit from their location in central Paris by visiting several of the locations included in the Journées Européennes des Métiers d’Art. The Palais de Tokyo, the Berthier ateliers and the Théâtre du Soleil are just a few of the establishments participating in the three-day event. That way, visitors can get a glimpse behind the scenes of the art world to see how renowned creations are conceived and then executed.
Open houses, demonstrations, exhibitions and conferences have all been organized for the Art Career Days. This event is part of a Europe-wide initiative in which several major European cities — including London, Milan and Madrid — plan similar types of events introducing the private art world to the public.
The event debuts at the Palais de Tokyo, with an inaugural exhibition entitled ‘Le Temps de la Création’ (‘The Era of Creation’). The exhibition sheds light on the relationships between visual artists, graphic artists and artisans across the globe. Their collaborations will be put on display in the museum’s new exhibition space, the ‘period room,’ which attempts to reveal the connections between different pieces of art created in the same time.
For a full agenda, visitors can see the event’s website (in French). Those who do check out some of the scheduled events are sure to experience art in a way like never before.
