René Magritte, The Treachery of Images (La Trahison des Images) at the Centre Pompidou in Paris

René Magritte, The Treachery of Images (La Trahison des Images) at the Centre Pompidou in Paris

Sep 21, 2016 - Jan 23, 2017

The Centre Pompidou is devoting a thematic exhibition to the work of the Belgian artist René Magritte. This completely new exhibition reinterprets the entire work of the artist in the light of five "figures" to which Magritte made constant reference in his work: fire, shadows,curtains, words and the fragmented body. Through an approach based on these themes, the exhibition reveals the artist's thinking on questions of resemblance and realism, and highlights his works dealing with the deceptive representations of the…

Miami: Julio Le Parc Exhibition

Pérez Art Museum

Nov 30, 2016 - Mar 19, 2017

Though he was born in Argentina, Julio Le Parc began his kinetic art career in Paris, and was a founding member of the artist collective Groupe de Recherche d’Art Visual.

Using art as an impetus for social empowerment raised his oeuvre and influence. More than 100 works can be experienced visually…

Baltimore Museum of Art

Bold, groundbreaking Matisse paintings are juxtaposed with highlights of Diebenkorn’s work from the early 1950s to 1980, including canvases from his ocean Park series, which is renowned for its exploration of colour, light and space.

Cantor Art Museum

Dec 21, 2016 - Apr 3, 2017

Paris was the centre of the Surrealism movement when it began during World War One, then came of age with André Breton’s 1924 poetic declaration. It was a cultural movement aimed at resolving the contradictions of dream and reality. Artists began illustrating this new viewpoint through art which was said to require close scrutiny.

What if Art Disappeared? Exhibition at Centre Pompidou Metz

Centre Pompidou Metz

January 2 @ 8:00 am - February 14 @ 5:00 pm

It is the year 2052. Art is banned and well on its way to extinction. Only 80 works are temporarily safe in a transnational museum; we must commit them to memory as our only hope to transmit them to future generations. This is the inventive premise of the ‘Imaginary Museum’ exhibition inspired by Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, held at the Centre Pompidou-Metz in collaboration with the MMK Frankfurt and the Tate. Until 14 February.

The Getty Museum has scored with this exhibit in partnership with the Louvre, bringing to LA works ranging from masterpieces to medals of the sculptor Edmé Bouchardon.

He also designed fountains (the Fontaine des Quatre-Saisons on the Rue de Grenelle, 7th arrondissement,…
