Yves Saint Laurent Museum

Oct 20, 2017 - Sep 6, 2018

From the timeless 'smoking' tuxedo to his daring foray into luxury prêt-à-porter, Yves Saint Laurent's deft eye and unparalleled flair redefined fashion. Fifteen years since his final runway show, his legacy will be immortalised at Paris's new Yves Saint Laurent museum. The impending opening at the label's former atelier is still very hush-hush but the haute couture temple's inaugural exhibition promises to live up to the hype with 50 original confections set to go on display along with sketches, videos…

Degas Sculpture Exhibition in LA

Nov 10, 2017 - Apr 9, 2018

Degas exhibited just one sculpture during his lifetime. However, in the privacy of his studio, the painter modelled in wax and clay throughout his career, producing hundreds of small-scale studies of horses, dancers, and bathers that were seen only by close friends. Taking Shape: Degas as Sculptor explores the improvisational nature of Degas’s artistic practice through the Norton Simon’s collection of modèles; the first and only set of bronzes cast from the original wax and plaster statuettes. Norton Simon Museum,…

Degas Danse Dessin

Dec 5, 2017 - Feb 25, 2018

On the centenary of the death of Edgar Degas, the Musée d’Orsay pays tribute to the master with a unique exhibition charting his 20-year friendship with writer, poet and thinker Paul Valéry. Featuring Degas’s drawings and sketches, and extracts from Valéry’s little-known tome on his friend’s oeuvre, Degas Danse Dessin, the exhibit threads a tight narrative, delving into their social interaction and creative kinship. Fiercely independent, Degas rejected the label of ‘Impressionist’ and delighted in wrong-footing critics. His autonomy came…

Power Plays

Dec 5, 2017 - Jul 2, 2018

Emblematic portraits, equestrian statues and coronation regalia are among the exhibits on show in Power Plays at the Louvre’s Petite Galerie. On loan from the Musée du Louvre, Musée National du Château de Pau, Château de Versailles and Musée des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris, the 40 works explore the representation of political power and the use of art as a propaganda tool, from Antiquity to the modern day.  Until July 2 petitegalerie.louvre.fr

Horsing around with Bartabas

January 12 - March 4

Mighty stallions dangling mid-air watched on by hooded horsemen... it's just another day at the Zingaro stables. Spearheaded by maverick écuyer Bartabas, over the decades the pioneering equestrian theatre troupe has boldly fused classic dressage with lyrical dance and opera. But we've seen nothing yet, it seems. Bartabas's farewell show, Ex Anima, promises to be the most daring and gravity-defying romp ever attempted. The plucky horseman's swan song will give the floor to his trusty steeds, entirely eclipsing Zingaro's fine…

Limoux Carnival

January 19 - March 18

With three months of non-stop revels and twice weekly parades tearing through town, Limoux's carnival is the world's longest, and most action-packed. The bonanza dates back to the 14th century when millers took to showering the streets with flour and tossing sugared almonds willy-nilly to celebrate payment of their taxes (as you do!). Until March 18

Before The Incas

January 19 - May 1

Drawing on recent archaeological breakthroughs, the Musée du Quai Branly offers an insight into the organisation of power within Peru's ancient societies before the rise of the mighty Incas. Until April 1 www.quaibranly.fr

Marie Curie Exhibition

January 19 @ 8:00 am - March 4 @ 5:00 pm

The Panthéon pays tribute to Marie Curie – one of its most extraordinary residents and the first woman to be buried in its hallowed sanctum – with this unmissable exhibition charting her career, scientific discoveries and private life. Until March 4 paris-pantheon.fr

Trash to Treasure

January 23 - March 1

Renowned for his 'trash animals', Artur Bordalo has raised the bar with this 3D rodent towering in at 8 metres in Paris's hip 13th. A comment on pollution, the critter was born from the streets' flotsam, discarded suitcases and scavenged scraps. Until March

Simply The Zest

February 17 - March 4

With its hoard of larger-than-life citrus sculptures, the Fête du Citron is France's zestiest – and juiciest – festival. . . When life gives you lemons… why, stack them up into sky-grazing sculptures, of course. For the past 85 years, Menton's handy folk have juiced up those dreary winter months with the Fête du Citron, a wondrous display of citrus-based art installations. And we're not talking slap-dash mounds of lemons haphazardly heaped on street corners, but full-blown engineering feats rising…

Nice Carnival

February 17 - March 3

It may be one of the world's longest-running carnivals (some even claim it's the very first), but there’s nothing old school – or down-to-earth – about Nice's Mardi Gras extravaganza. This year's 'King of Space' theme tells you all you need to know… Brave the throngs (or camp all night to nab a good spot – you wouldn't be the first) to catch the spectacular parade with its motley crew of papier-mâché giants and gurning marionettes perched atop zipping floats.…

Annecy Venetian Fête

February 23 - February 25

Annecy's Venetian offering flies the flag for good old-fashioned fun. Traditional floats glide through the old town to the rousing strains of brass bands and cheers, while masked figures teetering under sky-scraping headdresses flood the streets. The Alpine masquerade certainly gives Venice a run for its money. February 23-25
