Paris: leading capital for international contemporary creation…

Paris One step ahead 2014. Paris stays one step ahead, and the future face of the capital for the 2020s gradually takes shape. The cultural scene is without doubt the destination’s strongest attraction with the opening of new venues, the reopening of prestigious sites and with events for every type of public. From museums to trendy bars, from galleries to palaces or design hotels, from monuments to sumptuous restaurants, Paris is more than ever a capital city that is in the public eye and which continues to surprise Parisians and visitors. There is a vibrant energy at every turn! Paris is set to become an even more creative capital.

With the opening of new public and private venues for artistic creation every year, new galleries, and a calendar of major exhibitions of upcoming talents alongside retrospectives of renowned artists. Contemporary art can be seen at key annual events like the FIAC (international contemporary art fair), the exhibition ‘Monumenta’ or the Nuit blanche (a cultural all-nighter), the new Triennale (Triennial) and the very recent Biennale de Belleville (Belleville Biennial) but also throughout the year with exhibitions in major and more low-key galleries, art foundations and at smaller-scale venues. Today, artistic creation is booming and just waiting to be discovered!

A bientôt, Brigitte

Brigitte - Social circles

Bonsoir, my name is Brigitte. I’m the ultimate Parisian. There isn’t a VIP evening that I miss out on. When I was 18, I hunted autographs and stole photos of stars walking the streets of Paris or in concert. Vanessa Paradis, Catherine Deneuve, Jean Dujardin... they’re all in my book. It wasn’t very difficult as my parents produced concerts and I grew up in this fascinating world. I’ve turned it into a profession since I’m a people journalist! I now set up meetings with the stars and can question them without their bodyguards getting rid of me like they did in the past. I’d love to tell you more about these so French VIPs…
