Presented until January 10 at the Musée de l’Orangerie, the exhibition Chaïm Soutine / Willem de Kooning, painting embodied takes yet another level on December 8 during a Curieuse Nocturne event, in which Time Out Paris is the partner. Concerts, visits, meetings and performances will also make you “crazy about Soutine” (and De Kooning, of course). All free!
“I’ve always been crazy about Soutine – all of his paintings. “ Superstar of abstract expressionism, Willem de Kooning has never ceased to claim his love for one of the masters of the School of Paris, Chaïm Soutine. Bewitching and fascinating, the works of the most French of Russian painters are a real starting point in the art of the American plastic artist (of Dutch origin), who will explore color and matter through the prism of Soutine. A lineage between two “accursed artists” that the Musée de l’Orangerie explores with gusto, making this exhibition one of our favorites of the season!
Cursed artists, successful party!
So yes, we grant you, it all sounds very serious. But you don’t really know the Orangerie which, as usual, succeeds in transforming any exhibition into a party! Where other establishments offer classic nightlife, that of the Tuileries spot will be “curious”. The evening begins at the end of the exhibition at 7 p.m. and ends at 11:30 p.m., just in time to catch the last metro.
On the program for this evening, of which Time Out Paris is a partner? Guided tours and mediations focused on the relationship between the two artists. We then let ourselves be quietly guided by the students of the Louvre school to appreciate the masterpieces on display and the bond that unites these painters with exceptional sensitivity. Meeting times are also provided by the museum. The rare opportunity to exchange views on the exhibition presented and the museum’s future progress with mediators and other players from the Orangery. And for those who always want more, open your eyes! Performances are planned throughout the museum, making us rediscover this iconic place through living art.
A Curieuse Nocturne with a singular soundtrack
The most music lovers among us will be delighted during three mesmerizing concerts by pianist and electronic music producer Mischa Blanos. Born in Bucharest, living today between Berlin and his hometown and winner of several classical music awards, this musician mixes his conservatory influences with jazz, electronic music and even cinema. His expressionist melodies, almost transcendent, will give a new dimension to the famous hall of Water lilies of the museum. Qualified for “Sistine Chapel of Impressionism” by André Masson in 1952, this set signed Claude Monet is enough to transport us with its poetry and its unique continuity.
Imagine stopping there for an experimental concert… A real trip in perspective! A little important info: the event is completely free but beware, Covid obliges, reservations are required. To your keyboards, therefore, to book you a beautiful evening between art, sound and experiences of all kinds.
