Living heritage. Along with sports heritage, this is the theme chosen by the organizers of the 2023 edition of the European Heritage Days... Endd out more
Organizing an event in a heritage and cultural place is to offer the possibility to enrich the experience in a significant way. Indeed, beyond the spectacular environment of the chosen place, the additional organization of a private visit of the building, the collections or the current exhibition allows to establish privileged links with your guests while offering an animation of choice in the course of the day or the evening.
The lockdown and forced closures of last spring have led to some upheaval in the exhibition schedules of our museums and partners. The itineraries have been reorganized and some of them have taken advantage of the opportunity to start major works. Between the extension and the reprogramming of exhibitions and events, autumn promises to be particularly dynamic! Here is a small overview:
CERNUSCHI MUSEUM - Journey on the Road to Kisokaidō. From Hiroshige to Kuniyoshi - from October 16, 2020 to January 17, 2021

Through a journey punctuated by the different stops of the Kisokaidō road (one of the most mythical roads in Japan), a selection of remarkable objects will echo the engravings exhibited: armor, calligraphy boxes, katana, battle saddle or picnic kits will be presented.

On the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the death of François Boucher (1703 - 1770), the Musée Cognacq-Jay explores the theme of Love in its most licentious form. The exhibition traces a history of desire through the creations of Boucher and his contemporaries - master, rivals or pupils - such as Watteau, Greuze and Fragonard. This dialogue reveals how Boucher, the painter of Louis XV, established himself as a central figure in the development of erotic art in the 18th century. Coming from prestigious international public and private collections, the works, some one hundred paintings, drawings and prints are often presented for the first time in France.

MAHJ - Jews of Morocco, 1934-1937 - Photographs by Jean Besancenot - from June 30, 2020 to May 2, 2021
Dating from the years 1934-1937, the photographs of Jean Besancenot offer an exceptional testimony on the rural Jewish communities of Morocco, now disappeared.
Jean Besancenot (1902-1992) attended the School of Decorative Arts in Paris, began a career as a painter and studied French regional costumes. During a study trip to Morocco in 1934, he became interested in photography and traditional clothing. With the help of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, he visited Morocco in 1935 and 1936, photographing the men and women of the different communities and carefully documenting their ceremonial costumes. Alongside his photographs, Besancenot filmed, drew and took numerous notes, which introduced him to the world of French ethnology. In 1942, he published Costumes and types of Moroccoa book reproducing his watercolor drawings which remains a reference.

Based on autochromes (the first color photography process) and films produced by the operators of the Archives de la Planète, a vast enterprise imagined by Albert Kahn, the exhibition paints a portrait of the city and reveals the shift from a timeless capital to a metropolis concerned with progress and looking to the future.

JACQUEMART ANDRÉ MUSEUM - Turner, paintings and watercolors Tate Collections - May 26, 2020 to January 11, 2021
Unquestionably the greatest exponent of the golden age of English watercolor, Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) exploited its effects of light and transparency on English landscapes or Venetian lagoons. This exhibition reveals the role that watercolors played in Turner's life and art, from the early works he sent to the Royal Academy to the fascinating experiments in light and color of his maturity. Thanks to exceptional loans from the Tate Britain in London, which houses the largest collection of Turner's work in the world, the Musée Jacquemart-André is hosting an exhibition of 60 watercolors and some 10 oil paintings, some of which have never been shown in France.
PARIS CURRENCY - Akan, the values of exchange - Gold for currency, weight for price - from September 8, 2020 to February 28, 2021
The Akan peoples (West Africa) used gold as a means of payment until the colonial currencies were imposed at the beginning of the 20th century. Preserved in powder form in small boxes, this gold was weighed using scales and weights whose countless variety never ceases to amaze. More than 2000 of these weights are preserved in the collection of the Monnaie de Paris, thanks to various legacies and donations.
Through a meticulous selection, the 11 Conti Museum explains the origins and unsuspected originalities of these small bronze figures that plunge us into the daily life of this African region. The visitor will discover that beyond the gold weighed to exchange, the weights say much more than a simple price!
NATIONAL ARCHAEOLOGY MUSEUM - Saint Germain en Laye - From Alesia to Rome, the archaeological adventure of Napoleon III - from September 19, 2020 to January 3, 2021
During the 19th century, archaeology found itself at the heart of new political and scientific issues. On the one hand, the European States compete to appropriate the knowledge of disappeared cultures and to build their national identity. On the other hand, real excavation sites were opened, mobilizing new techniques and innovative tools.
Emblematic of this double movement, the archaeological excavations undertaken at the instigation of Napoleon III adopted a very different approach from those carried out by the "antiquarians" of the previous century. Very much linked to the person of the emperor, they constitute a true archaeological epic on the scale of Europe and the Mediterranean basin. The impulse is given from France by the writing of the History of Julius Caesar. Napoleon III intended to follow in the footsteps of the Roman conqueror and the Commission de Topographie des Gaules, or CTG, was officially invested on July 17, 1858.
The exhibition traces the progress of the excavations that Napoleon III undertook in the footsteps of the Caesars, while proposing a new approach that questions the role of photography and recording methods in this archaeological program.
