• Discover UNESCO and its Landmark Exhibit

    By Loui Franke

    The recognition of Israel to have had an historical past in Palestine has been largely absent. UNESCO has helped bridge this gap with its recent hosting of the exhibit entitled People, Book, Land: The 3500 Year Relationship of the Jewish People with the Holy Land. The exhibit presents an overview of Jewish history in the Middle East beginning in Biblical times with the patriarch Abraham and continues to the present-day state of Israel.

  • What's hot on the Paris Art Scene

    By Gerry Dryansky

    The sculptor Jean-Louis Faure has summed up his work in his "Catalogue Irraisonné”. You may have seen it featured in an arresting window display at the Ecume des Pages bookstore in the heart of Saint-Germain des Près, where together with a signing at 7 PM Tuesday, the  book is on sale.  At 28 euro, it may well be a collector's item. An absolute maverick in the world of pale minimalism, cluttered installations and sleep-inducing video art, Faure is a cult figure among admirers whose chief cheerleader is the philosopher Régis Debray.

  • Gustave Caillebotte Exhibition at Yerres, France

    By Diane Stamm

    Yerres, France bills itself as “L’Autre Capitale de l’Impressionnisme” – The Other Capital of Impressionism – and an exhibition of the work of native son Gustave Caillebotte, who spent a good part of his youth there, helps explain why. The exhibition, “Caillebotte À Yerres – au temps de l’impressionism” (Caillebotte in Yerres – Time of Impressionism), which runs through July 20, is at Propriété Caillebotte, the eleven-hectare estate Caillebotte’s father bought in 1860, when Caillebotte was twelve years old.

  • Men's Fashion Week Paris

    By Katja Kozlevcar

    Second round of autumn/winter 2014 collection presentations at Men's Fashion Week last month in Paris left us wanting more. More of the inspirations and more of the unexpected. We were sneaking around narrow streets with daylight vampires, got recreated with some joggers at Galliano, enlightened by a touch of neon and read a Songzio's version of “50 shades of black”.

  • Men's Fashion Week Paris: Catching up with the Girls

    By Katja Kozlevcar

    Even though it's true that women are the big consumers when it comes to fashion, men are slowly but persistently taking over the industry. Visiting past Men's Fashion Week in Paris showed a rising interest in menswear from buyers, editors, celebrities and press around the globe. It's pretty much like attending women's Ready-to-Wear Fashion Week, with much less fuss and more focus on clothes themselves.
