If there is an exhibition that should not be missed in Paris these days, it has to be the one currently hosted by the national gallery of the Jeu de Paume (until September 21st). Entitled « Protographies », it unaffectedly broadcasts a very interesting selection of Oscar Muňoz's pieces, thus retracing forty years of a fruitful career. Unclassifiable as well as fascinating, the famous colombian artist has experimented with art forms as varied as sculpture, video, drawing, painting and installation. The « Protographies » exhibition is a plural journey through time, with a hint of nostalgia.
The city Paris is currently hosting the Musique en l'Île festival, organized by La Toison d'Art, a musical council that specializes in organizing and spreading concerts of vocal, and more particularly sacred music. During this festival that lasts from July 3rd to August 31st of 2014 (included), various concerts of classical and religious music will take place every few days inside of parisian churches such as the Saint-Germain-des-Prés church and the Saint-Louis-en-l'Île church, that are located in the center of the french capital. For a few shows, England and Russia-based choirs are taking the trip all the way here for your ears to enjoy... A good opportunity to combine both the pleasure of the eyes and this of the ears in one magical evening.
