Some shows and visual styles leave a lasting impression on audiences. The recent trend for immersive digital shows and digital deconstructions is one that has really taken Parisian art shows to another level. Visitors love the chance to interact with images, dive into the subject and get a new perspective. It makes a change from a static image in a quiet gallery when you can play, move and have a fitting soundtrack.
This immersive experience at Espace Lafayette-Drouot takes some private pieces on loan and a series of recreations of famous murals. This is a great way to see many of the iconic designs and to compare themes throughout the artist’s career.
This current exhibition at the Musee du Quai Branly brings together around 200 items from a variety of nations and cultures across the Pacific Islands – from native cultures in New Zealand to the islands of Fiji, Papua New Guinea and more.

Paris has long been considered the city of romance. Couples come here to propose by the Eiffel Tower, honeymoon and – before it became full – place a padlock on the bridge.

That is why there are so many great subjects and items to see in the Romantic Paris show at the Petit Palais.
