Spring exhibitions not to be missed in our venues partners!

flagship exhibitions for spring 2024

The year 2024 is full of surprises and great events for all lovers of art and culture. Here's an overview of the spring program at our partner institutions.



April 5 to August 18, 2024

Dedicated to Jean Hélion (1904-1987), a leading figure in abstraction before the Second World War and in the revival of figuration from 1939 until his death, this retrospective highlights the career of a free-spirited painter who defied criticism and the expectations of his public to go against the grain. It reflects the periods of his artistic evolution, from his first works in the late 1920s, to his participation in the international abstraction of the 1930s, of which he was a fervent activist and a relay for the spread of ideas across the Atlantic. After the war, the artist turned to figuration, highlighting everyday life and the banal, initially in a staging that could be described as archetypal, then, in the 1950s, in a more realistic style. 

At the end of his life, in the 1970s-1980s, having become blind, Hélion revisited his work, with a touch of derision and without complex, playing on the reversals and chaos of objects present in his painting since the beginning, and thus making his contribution to contemporary painting.

MUSÉE D'ART MODERNE DE PARIS - Arab presences. Art moderne et décolonisation Paris 1908-1987

April 5 to August 25, 2024

The exhibition offers a rereading of the xxe century at the heart of artistic relations between Paris and the great Arab capitals, through a selection of 250 works - from French and international public collections and private collections. and private collections.

From Damascus to Baghdad, via Cairo and Algiers, the establishment of the French "beaux-arts" concept (through its schools and museums) represented one of the main thrusts of cultural and educational colonization. From then on, artists from African and Arab regions made their way in and out of academic institutions, many of them gaining a foothold in the French capital thanks to scholarships.
Paris welcomes and federates a large number of artists from all over the Mediterranean, without necessarily giving them the keys to success. It became a hotbed of cosmopolitan modernities, often on the fringes of society, which also fueled the decolonization movements.

In a dynamic back-and-forth between works and archives, the distant past and the near past, visitors are invited on a transhistorical and transnational journey that follows the key events and moments in the dialogue between Paris and the Arab and North African capitals. 

PETIT PALAIS - Théodore Rousseau. The voice of the forest

Drom March 5 to July 7, 2024

This is the first major exhibition devoted to the painter Théodore Rousseau (1812-1867), who made nature his religion, his world and his refuge. Rousseau was an ecologist before his time: leader of the colony of artists who frequented the village of Barbizon and the forest of Fontainebleau, he worked tirelessly for the protection of the Foret de Fontainebleau, which led to the creation of the "artistic reserves" (1853), a world first in the midst of industrialization.

Both a romantic and a realist, Rousseau's aim was to capture the harmony of the world in his work, and to mingle his soul with it. He played a fundamental role in the emergence of a new French school of landscape painting in the mid-21e century, paving the way for Impressionism.


March 16 to July 14, 2024

Born in Ravenna, Italy, in 1947, Paolo Roversi arrived in Paris in 1973, a city that taught him everything and that he has never left since. In 1980, he began working with Polaroid, for which he fell in love at first sight. 

In his studio, an imaginary space, a place of illusion and poetic reinvention of the world, he adopts black and white, revolutionizes color, makes blur his own and tames a light that liquefies bodies. Internationally recognized as one of the world's leading fashion photographers, Roversi's work over the past forty years has been haunted by the melancholy and fragility of beauty that still define his unique and distinctive style. 

His career has been marked by multiple collaborations with the greatest fashion designers: Yohji Yamamoto, Romeo Gigli, Rei Kawakubo, Azzedine Alaïa.

MUSÉE CARNAVALET - Stone and water. Stories from the Fountain of the Innocents

April 24 to August 25, 2024

The Fountain of the Innocents is a masterpiece of the French Renaissance, adorned with reliefs by sculptor Jean Goujon, and structures the center of Paris, in the heart of the Halles district. 

The restoration of the fountain in 2022-2024 offers an exceptional opportunity to discover the five nymph reliefs sculpted by Jean Goujon, which were deposited on the monument. The exhibition offers visitors a chance to rediscover this famous Parisian landmark, through a bold exhibition approach. Digital mediation presents the restoration issues facing heritage conservation professionals: how do you restore sculptures? why and how do you remove reliefs from a monument? what do you replace them with?

The exhibition explores the various evolutions and transformations that the Fountain of the Innocents has undergone over time, as well as the work of Jean Goujon, a major artist who is little known today. The decisive influence he had on many artists is another highlight of the exhibition, as is the posterity of this emblematic Paris monument in popular culture.

MUSÉE BOURDELLE - Antoine Bourdelle. The Memory of Objects

April 3 to August 18, 2024

Antoine Bourdelle. The Memory of Objects presents a collection of objects that once belonged to Antoine Bourdelle, and the way they fed his imagination. What do they tell us about the artist, the character he created for himself, his origins, his tastes, studio life and, of course, his work? Souvenirs, even relics, often with no intrinsic value other than documentary or emotional, they provide keys to understanding his work. This thematic display offers a new approach to Bourdelle's art, through the medium of emotion, intimacy and narrative.

MUSÉE COGNACQ JAY - Pocket luxury. The fashion for boxes, snuffboxes, cases and small luxury items in the Age of Enlightenment

March 29 to September 29, 2024

In the 18th century, small luxury items, known ase century under the generic term of "boxes" or "jewelry", were all the rage during the Age of Enlightenment, in France and throughout Europe. Made of gold, enriched with hard or precious stones, covered with mother-of-pearl, porcelain or translucent enamels, sometimes adorned with miniatures, these luxury objects par excellence crystallized the "small" virtuosity of the finest silversmiths. They are the source of some fabulous inventions: a miniature pistol is used as a perfume atomizer, a wax case takes the form of a porcelain asparagus, a sucker becomes a dromedary in sculpted agate...

These boxes and "jewels" were sometimes the object of unbridled consumption, and played an integral part in the rituals of elite sociability, particularly codified in the xvIIIe century. The exhibition presents rarities and masterpieces by the greatest names in luxury goldsmithing during the Age of Enlightenment.

MUSÉE DE LA VIE ROMANTIQUE - Géricault's horses (1791-1824)

May 15 to September 15, 2024

This exhibition, organized to mark the bicentenary of the death of Géricault (1791-1824), explores the powerful pictorial motif of the horse in the work of the Romantic painter. This animal is inseparable from the artist, and its many faces can be seen here: from the military horse to the proletarian horse, from the antique horse to the English horse, from portraits of heads and rumps to equestrian portraits. 

Géricault's passion for the equestrian world began as early as his training with the horse painter Carle Vernet, and he went on to explore equestrian anatomy and the expressiveness of horses, from birth to death, from anger to tenderness, via war, toil, misery and sexuality. For Théodore Géricault, the stable was the setting for all his aesthetic experiments.


March 27 to September 22, 2024

In 1966, the film Is Paris Burning? about the Liberation of Paris, directed by René Clément and based on the book by Collins and Lapierre.
Alain Delon, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Yves Montand, Kirk Douglas, Orson Welles and many others: a host of French and American stars contribute to the success of this blockbuster, which is still a cinematic reference today. But where does the historical fresco end? Where does the acting begin?

For the 80e anniversary of the Liberation of Paris, in 2024, the Musée de la Libération de Paris-Musée du Général Leclerc-Musée Jean Moulin presents an exhibition on a classic film, whose resonance sometimes replaces that of historical facts. Around a few emblematic scenes from the film, the public can discover the story of the Liberation of Paris in the light of the film's interpretation of the political context of the mid-1960s.

MUSÉE DES ARTS DÉCORATIFS - Iris Van Herpen. Sculpting the senses

November 29, 2023 to April 28, 2024

This exhibition pays tribute to the work of Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen, now recognized as one of the most avant-garde figures of her generation. A pioneer in the use of new technologies, she transcends the norms of clothing by integrating traditional and forward-looking know-how. 

With over 100 haute couture pieces in dialogue with contemporary art and design creations, the exhibition explores the relationship between the body, clothing and the environment in a rapidly changing world, creating a unique resonance between fashion, contemporary art, design and science.

MUSÉE DES ARTS DÉCORATIFS - The birth of department stores. Fashion, design, toys, advertising. 1852-1925

April 10 to October 13, 2024

The Musée des Arts Décoratifs and the Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine are joining forces to present two exhibitions on department stores. The partnership between the two institutions aims to present a two-part history, from the appearance of department stores in 1852 to the present day,

It highlights the development of this new commercial concept in Paris Starting at 1850, initiated by daring entrepreneurs. 

These innovative spaces, mainly dedicated to women, revolutionized commerce and heralded the consumer society. The exhibition also emphasizes that, beyond their commercial principles, department stores bear witness to the industrial revolution, Baron Haussmann's urban transformations, the rise of the bourgeoisie and the construction of the image of the Parisian woman.

CITÉ DE L'ARCHITECTURE ET DU PATRIMOINE - Once upon a time, there were stadiums

March 20 to October 16, 2024

A unit of length in ancient Greece, the stadium (or stadion) was quickly assimilated to a vast empty space, partially or fully equipped around its perimeter with bleachers or grandstands. It can take many architectural forms, from the communal stadium to the great sports arenas, all of which derive from its successive uses.

The rise of mass sports in the 20th century transformed the stadium into a major public facility, to the point of becoming a monument. Dedicated to hosting national and international competitions, the stadium also became a showplace. The stadium's importance in everyone's imagination invites us to understand not only its history, but also its heritage dimension..

CITÉ DE L'ARCHITECTURE ET DU PATRIMOINE - Paul Andreu. Architecture is an art

February 15 to June 2, 2024

Paul Andreu is one of the leading figures on the international architectural scene in the second half of the 20th century.

From Roissy to Beijing, Paul Andreu's projects are first and foremost crossings that mobilize fundamental principles: earth and sky, square and circle, West and East. From airports to the Osaka Maritime Museum and the Beijing Opera House, Paul Andreu has given architectural expression to flight, whether real or poetic.

Saturation, distortion, voices from beyond the grave, shocking iconography: metal is subversive, both in discourse and form. Since its genesis nearly fifty years ago, the genre has resisted institutionalization, but its following continues to grow. 

After electro and hip-hop, the Philharmonie explores this new territory, its codes and the wealth of its myths. Contrary to the caricatures to which metal is often reduced, the exhibition presents, for the first time in France, a documented picture of this movement, where music, popular culture, anthropological vision and contemporary art are in dialogue.

Both artist and craftsman, d'André-Charles Boulle (1642-1732) worked for the Bâtiments du roi for over fifty years, and with his workshop took on commissions from the royal family and high nobility. He achieved a degree of technical perfection, notably in the marquetry of metals and tortoiseshell, which he brought to the highest level, and as a genius bronzier, he imposed gilded bronze on furniture, renewing its typologies. 

He was also an inquisitive collector and a talented draughtsman, keen to promote his work, particularly through engraving. Closely associated with the sumptuousness of French art in the reign of Louis XIV, he became a household name during his lifetime, and has remained so ever since.
