MyParis Festival

For three days, Paris gives us a taste of its creative scene. Part of it are a series of must-see exhibitions, molecular food-tasting, trips to museums outside Paris and artistic performances.

MyParis offers free visits to museums and art centres in Paris: CENTQUARTE, Le Plateau, Betonsalon, La Villette, Galerie Chappe, Palais de Tokyo, Fondation Ricard and Galerie des Galeries. At the outskirts, MyParis exposes the art scene in Micro Onde(Velizy-Villacoublay), La Marechalerie(Versailles) and La Generale(Sevres).

Galeries Lafayette highlights the works of Olivier Saillard in Au-dela du vetement. Saillard, the curator, fashion historian, designer of window displays, shows us the art of window display, through his "display sculptures". Inspired by the archives of Stockman's , the fashion expert dabbles with techniques to highlight products using shoe racks, hat stands, hand displays, scarf and tie rings.

Palais de Tokyo opens its doors to the public for a guided visit of the Spy Numbers exhibit, as well as the Walking Series performance by Vanessa Le Mat.
