I'm a bit in contact with the grand Palace for one or two years (remember This too cool visit of the grand palais all empty) and when an exhibition really tempts me I move me to go to openings. I'm quite difficult in expos, There was even a time or despite my studies of applied arts (and my free access to all museums of the city of Paris) j & rsquo;'d hate it (I remember having a presentation of 2 h to my class entitled “should we burn the museums” at the time :D).


I kinda calmed down, and if I don't always like not permanent skirmishes of the museums or the retrospective which bore me a bit I really like thematic exhibitions that offer to go further.

Expo pile-ups at the grand Palais currently me really passionate. I have so much thought after the opening that I'm back trainer My pumps a week after.

Expo pile-ups – at the Grand Palais until the 4 July


It was a long time that I had not much appreciated the work of a curator, the expo is almost a work of art all alone. The absence of cartel completely changes the visit, It is not known what we look, If it is a surreal piece or craft in the 5th century. From this we can all imagine observing what has been developed side-by-side. The associated sound course (app to download) is completely barred, I really have the impression of having plunged into a parallel universe during the expo.

I have loads of pictures but honestly they have nothing interesting, do not go to see a play in particular, but this all completely wonky imagined by the talented curator and historian of art Jean-Hubert Martin (now I'd caution as it pays attention to the Director of a film).

    I always find very frustrating a Museum without cartel, or with a cartel very little developed (as to the Musée des Confluences), It takes the opportunity to learn while Conversely, If there are cartels, nothing prevents to ignore. As I am a student in art history I surely miss recoil (I go to museums to deepen my courses, seek Info) suddenly I'd love your more neutral opinion on the question : What is te revelled in the fact that the works are in bulk and without explanation ? Creating an imaginary universe ? The purely aesthetic side ?
    (and told conservative, curator in french is not the equivalent of curator in English I believe but I'm a little excessive here ;) )

      In fact the expo is very well made for it : There is no cartels under works, but after each small “collection” There is a screen that gives the name and the author of each work, so if you want to know you can. In this expo is a true will all mix by jamming the tracks on the time and the purpose behind the work (art or craft ?).

      Me I don't go to the Museum to learn things (so my approach is different), why I prefer books on the history of art. When there is no cartels I find that it helps to concentrate on the works they even, It forces the Viewer to imagine many other things.

      • 14 March 2016 at 10:57

        Thank you for your answer :)
        Ah ben is top then this compromise level cartel ! Because Yes sometimes the cartel prevents to really look at the artwork. And then this eternal debate crafts, art (or arts and crafts as the Chanel arts and crafts shows) remains always exciting !

        • 14 March 2016 at 20:28

          Dear Lucy,

          As a teacher in art, Let me give you my opinion.
          On the one hand, I am embarrassed when there is no cartel because I go also to the Museum to grow me and take notes for my classes and my personal culture.
          D & rsquo; the other hand, I like to play to recognize works thanks to the style of the artist and I'm getting my inner suspense (well OK, You'll think I'm weird!).
          Here, I was embarrassed at first and then gradually, I stopped wanting to know what it was specifically (except for the works of the Quai Branly which I know strictly nothing) to concentrate on the common link between the shown works.
          I loved for example Spoerri relate to this piece where gathered the remains of warriors.

          Voilà… This is my small contribution.

    Hehe super, I do not know if you had planned this article for a long time, but wishes I had expressed in your form have been fulfilled :-D I will therefore note this carefully for my next visit to Paris, This expo has excellent air ! In the light of your photos, It reminds me a little Hey expos in the halle Saint Pierre, I do not know if you know, It's also a world full, crazy and quirky, which juxtaposes artists in the very different work, with some inspired by currents or techniques. Sinon, respect if you arrive to make an exhibition in heels, for me it is impossible.
    And I agree with Lucie at the finicky club, in France french curator means administrator or guardian, Here it looks like Commissioner of expo or conservative (but in Quebec, they say trustee in the sense).

    • 14 March 2016 at 10:54

      It's funny, I've always said trustee, It speaks to me more than “Conservative” who has a small side “Archivist” that I have always found a bit away from work.

      You were actually more to ask me to speak a little more culture. The truth is that I'm rarely captivated by an expo, It was really an opportunity ;)

    • 14 March 2016 at 14:36

      Hello from the other side of the Atlantic!
      Small correction on the use of the word “Curator” in Quebec : being art and Quebec historian I can confirm that we use the title of curator ;)

  3. 14 March 2016 at 10:56

    No cartel ? but it is the most beautiful initiative anti-selfie !
    How do I know to which table stand ? – rires –
    I find unbearable the Gunners of expo. I think that the worst are retrospectives in Beaubourg, a permanent parade of busy people to finish and to amortize the entry for selfies with ticket to show their small virtual world that they have a cultural life.
    Thank you in any case to relay this expo. I love the dialogue between works that takes visitors by the hand and give meaning. After of course there is a double reading according to knowledge.

  4. 14 March 2016 at 10:58

    I also love this kind of expo. Personal collections or thematic expo that is really another way to go to the Museum. You had seen “It's life” at the Maillol Museum? It was confusing I had liked.
    And then to see a work out of context (time or place) This makes the bare I find!

    And otherwise, I do not see little old planted in Group 3 cm to the tables and which does not advance, did you how? :-)

    • 14 March 2016 at 12:02

      Ha ha I always try to advance or be far behind relous groups :D

    Ah the famous debate on the presence of cartels ! ^^

    Can sometimes miss out on exposure by looking at only the cartels and the expo only through these small indicative rectangles, they can also be little “intimidating” for certain people.

    The principle of the expo from the Grand Palace is not bad (and guided by the principle of the Mnemosyne Atlas of great Aby Warburg great art historian, It is a kind of forerunner of the mood board, and mostly inherited from the associations of images made in history of art, but here in a freer manner, I invite you to go and see if it interests you :) )

    I find the principle of exposure of the interesting Grand Palace, but I am not sure that it really works. For moila scenography of space (FAT works and other associations are already made) does not leave enough room for the subjectivity of the Viewer, Snap is a little too “authoritarian”.
    And I sometimes find it hard to follow the Grand Palais in its choice of exhibitions (after it can also be like that !) There are sometimes very large exhibitions public and bankable and others as one who tries to offer something different.

    Are you going to see the splendour and misery to the Musée d'Orsay ? Being a thematic expo with a small side sociological ca was able to please you.
    For reconciled with exhibits more “classics” I advise you the mini expo (gratuite) Over the years 1980 through the picture and videos at the Centre Pompidou in the sub soil ;).

    After I think of exhibitions (even if they are monographic) can be very well worked and become themselves work on part of a good conservative investment, a good team around the expo and the artist himself. I think for example to Sophie Calle of the year expo last to the Castello di Rivoli near Turin entitled “Madre”.

    You have understood that I am a student (but more for very long…) history of art and that all these questions can fascinate me ^^, hoping to give you want you reconcile with museums :) !

    PS : I have a friend who wrote a thesis entitled “the Museum is dead” and loved ! Questioning operation is the basis of a renewal and makes me even more want to work in this environment :)

    • 14 March 2016 at 11:44

      Olala I apologize for this novel !!

    • 14 March 2016 at 12:01

      Aaaah so I would like to do more expos. But I miss of time, I hate to go the weekend (I too had used to be quiet in the museums in the week when I was a student), and the week I have a job from the time of madness. Suddenly I miss quite a thing.

      I love the temporary exhibitions of the Musée d'Orsay, my best memory of all expos views always remains their “origins of abstraction” but that date really !

      • 14 March 2016 at 12:57

        Ah yes I understand quite …
        Sometimes the nocturnes are quite nice and there are finally (very often) little world :)

  7. 14 March 2016 at 11:56

    Ouh stuff there frankly creepy!
    The expos, I too have made, pendants my bin applied arts, the same, I think they have succeeded at me in disgust….That said I should me as move me the butt to go there..
    (shoes, mourance of love)

    If you have time, can you explain why you love not much permanent skirmishes of museums ? It is a question that interests me at the moment. I think that your aesthetic route can give interesting insights.

    • 14 March 2016 at 15:21

      Same question as Céline ! Very curious and interested to have your opinion on it..

  9. 14 March 2016 at 16:47

    This exhibition looks really super nice !!
    I generally sulk expo surfrequentees and media of the Grand Palais, but I'll note it in my tablets, because it looks to have a great and interesting point of view and to be a sacred source of inspiration :)

  10. 14 March 2016 at 20:22

    I agree with you to 100%! This exhibition is amazing!
    Bravo for this article that summarizes very well my thought. (What is this I love this blog!!!!)

  11. 14 March 2016 at 22:48

    Merci pour cet article !
    To bounce off the current discussion in the comments : the cartel or the text of room are sometimes the only way for visitors who do not have the aesthetic references and / or intellectual understanding (a little) the work which they contemplate. Everyone doesn't have at his disposal the resources necessary for the aesthetic appreciation of a work or an exhibition, all that practice cultural and contemplation are deeply social. And that is why that museums have a mission to go accessible to all by using the tools of mediation at their disposal – including texts. But I am biased : I have several years of research on the intellectual accessibility of museums and explanation always seems to me in fact exclude a part of the public… and makes me so uncomfortable.
    That said, Thank you brag about the exhibitions of the Musée d'Orsay (where I work #fierté) which often address social issues through their artistic reading.

    • 16 March 2016 at 12:20

      It's weird me I always found it quite frustrating cartels, Finally it depends what we of course put but often outside artist/name of the artwork it's not going very far. Museums have the air not bad progress especially with apps that can download and review by the expos.

  12. 15 March 2016 at 0:55

    Super, and in addition I learned a Word (cartel) :)

  13. 15 March 2016 at 10:12

    Super nice everything !
    I love your strap in string ! you have found it where ?

    What I would like to live in Paris or cities offering exhibitions, and with museums and nice to visit places. I live in a small town where the culture of art is sad and poor (Apart from the theatre which has its importance). Enfin, the problem these are mainly people who know nothing and which marvel of things that are not worth the effort. There are two schools of arts and drawing which have absolutely nothing to do with each other. One is absolutely wonderful and offers designs for all but also a preparation courses, and most people who are, are of the sublime. While the other favors contemporary art but all that comes out is an abomination, or so it might be nice but nothing is led, and it is this which is the best-known. I find it sad.

    Anyway, I would love spending my days in museums worthy of the name (especially with free access ^ *), I long to move on Nantes ^^ in any case, I take note of what you say, the expo makes us share seems nice, you gave me desire to go for a ride on my future Paris visit :D

    Your photos are incredible. I have the feelings to be with you admiring the works of this exhibition ! Like always, the dress is super nice !
