Dear Mr. Demo,

Imagine for a moment you are back in Paris. You're sitting on a sunny terrace enjoying your morning espresso, far from the hassles of everyday life, taking a well-deserved rest. Next to you, a table of tourists is seriously looking at a map and placing crosses to mark their itinerary of the day. Further on, a Parisian woman gulps down her coffee and leaves in a hurry, probably to go to work you think. Everyone seems busy, and you? What are you going to do with your day? Perhaps a stroll in the park? With no particular goal in mind... Or go shopping? Or maybe you're just curious enough to take time out for a cultural outing. Well, it's perfect timing because we've selected a series of not-to-be-missed summer exhibitions for you: 


Naples in Paris

Following the temporary closure of the Capodimonte Museum, more than sixty works representing the great Italian paintings of the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries have been moved to the Louvre museum, where they will remain from June 7, 2023 to January 8, 2024.
A remarkable blend between the Louvre's collection and that of one of Naples' most prestigious museums. The heart of the exhibition can be found in the Salon Carré, the Salle Rosa and the Grande Galerie, with famous names of Italian painting such as Titian and Caravaggio. In the Salle de la Chapelle, the exhibition takes a historical turn, highlighting the different periods of the Kingdom of Naples prior to its annexation to the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies in 1861. In the Clock Room, drawings and prints by the Italian masters will be shown alongside those already owned by the Louvre museum. Such an exceptional convergence between these two collections is one of the summer's unmissable cultural highlight for any art lover.

Address: Musée du Louvre, 99 rue de Rivoli, Paris 1er.



Basquiat x Warhol, a four-handed partnership

The New York of the 80s saw a close collaboration between Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol. Over one hundred and fifty works were produced together. Over half of them, in addition to individual works from each artist, are on show at the Fondation Louis Vuitton until August 28. The paintings produced together work like an exquisite corpse: the two artists take it in turns to continue working on the same canvas until it reaches its final outcome, which is the result of back and forth between the two creators. The exhibition covers the whole collaboration, which evolves from a superposition of two styles to a genuine intermingling.

Address: Fondation Louis Vuitton, 8 avenue du Mahatma Gandhi, Paris 16th.


Up to space

Put on your space suit and take off for a trip into outer space! Well, almost... Let's just say it'll be like being there, with this exhibition at the Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace, which has been on show since July 5 2022, and runs until August 20, 2023.
It features a series of interactive workshops enabling visitors to experience a journey beyond the atmosphere: a zero gravity simulator, a distorting mirror, a tour of the inside of a rocket and more. In addition, the exhibition presents the everyday objects of space travel: spacesuits, food, engines and other technical points that any space exploration enthusiast will be delighted to better understand. For young and old alike!

Address: Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace, 3 Esplanade de l'Air et de l'Espace Aéroport de Paris - Le Bourget, 93352 Dugny.
