Cultural life in Paris remains incredibly vibrant. Major museums and more discreet institutions alike offer season after season of exciting exhibitions exploring every facet of art and creation. Among those scheduled for the end of the year, the Hôtel Burgundy team has selected several that might appeal to you...
Less than a quarter of an hour on foot
Located in the heart of Paris' 1st arrondissement, just a stone's throw from the Eglise de la Madeleine, Le Burgundy is the ideal starting point for discovering some of this year's hottest exhibitions. Less than a quarter of an hour's walk away, you'll find two events at the Louvre. First, you can admire the Trésor de Notre-Dame before it is returned to the restored cathedral. Then travel to Naples with an exhibition mounted in partnership with the Capodimonte Museum. Also a short walk from the hotel, the Musée de l'Orangerie explores the dialogue between Modigliani and his art dealer. Finally, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs presents astonishing colorized images of 19th-century Japan.
Art in all its states
Another autumn event, Van Gogh is in the spotlight at the Musée d'Orsay, with an installation devoted to his last two months at Auvers-sur-Oise, a time of heightened creativity and pain. At the Centre Pompidou, discover Chagall as a sculptor and ceramist, passionate about music and establishing a dialogue with this art form by creating the sets for The Firebird. Finally, immerse yourself in the magic of the festive season as you stroll through Jungle en voie d'illumination. The Jardin des Plantes is offering a new installation of light structures on the theme, this year, of tropical forests. A truly enchanting experience!
Trade shows, shopping and, above all, exhibitions - Paris has no shortage of attractions, even in winter. Remember to book your tickets before you come to the Hôtel Le Burgundy, as some exhibitions sell out quickly.
