Andy Warhol “Unlimited” Exhibition
The Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris is devoting a remarkable exhibition to Andy Warhol (1928-1987). Comprising over 200 works, ‘Unlimited‘ highlights the serial side of the Warhol oeuvre – a crucial aspect of his work – and his ability to rethink the way art should be exhibited. Open to the Public

“Alber Elbaz/ Lanvin: Minifeste” Exhibition
“Alber Elbaz/Lanvin: Manifeste” will run from September 9 to October 31, 2015, at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie. Conceived as an art installation with no definitive reading, the exhibition uses a visual non-linear narrative that invites visitors to use their imagination. This is a tribute to the oldest Parisian fashion house still in business, highlighting the work of the creator, not as a monologue, but as a continuous dialogue between fashion and photography. Last but not least a book is published by Lanvin on the occasion of the exhibition. Open to the Public
