The Harlem Globetrotters® make the show in Paris!

They are in France! From October 1 st, the Harlem Globetrotters® will travel all over France for 16 exceptional dates. And it’s on October 14th that they will be in Paris, at the Accor Arena! More than a match, more than a show, it’s a unique event waiting for you!

 They are world legends. The Harlem Globetrotters® have the best basketball players in the world in their ranks. Since the team’s inception in 1926, they have entertained more than 148 million fans in 123 countries and territories around the world. And every year, they are still eagerly awaited by thousands of fans. Why is that? Because their show is like no other! On the field, in front of a euphoric audience, the Harlem Globetrotters® perform a series of dribbles, passes, dunks and sensational basketball shots. Their athletic skills are breathtaking in themselves. But to spice things up, the team also plays the fun and humor card!

The audience is literally overwhelmed, standing in the stands. On the field, the players are having fun, while the referee is keeping watch, whistle in hand. And their pleasure is communicative.
Big Easy Lofton, Ant Atkinson, Hi-Lite Bruton, Thunder Law, Bull Bullard, Cheese Chisholm, Lister and Ace Jackson are the stars of the moment. And they will be there in front of you! They are now part of the 750 men and women who have played for this world-renowned team.

 

In October, the Palym Hotel welcomes all basketball fans! Good plan: the hotel is located only 15 minutes walk from the Accor Arena.

Louis de Funès at the Cinematheque

The Cinémathèque française reopened its doors on July 15 with an exhibition dedicated to Louis de Funès. Laughter and gags, like a thumb to the epidemic. Screenings, conferences, meetings, workshops: everything, everything, you’ll know all about de Funès!

 

It is no longer presented. The name of Louis de Funès is known throughout the world. He is known by all generations, even the youngest. An inimitable actor, he is certainly the greatest French comedian. And in 2020, his fans are still as numerous as ever.

So an exhibition dedicated to the great “little” man is not only wise but also welcome! Who has never seen a film by Louis de Funès? Who has never laughed at his mimics or his lines?

The Cinematheque gives you the opportunity to revise your classics! You will be able to attend screenings spread over the months. But to discover the extent of de Funès’ talent, nothing beats the guided tours of the exhibition dedicated to him. It brings together more than 300 works, paintings, drawings and models, documents, sculptures, costumes and, of course, film extracts.

It is an opportunity to better understand the actor’s sources of inspiration, his working methods and the components of his acting.
A family outing par excellence, the Louis de Funès exhibition can be complemented by workshops for children. For budding comedians who want to play and direct short burlesque sequences!

 

In October, everyone will find a smile again at the Cinémathèque! The Louis de Funès exhibition can be seen until May 31, 2021. Information and reservations on the Cinematheque’s website : www.cinematheque.fr

59 Rivoli: art in the city

 

An island of originality in a museum capital. This is how 59 Rivoliclaims to be.. Initially an artists’ squat, this atypical place is today a conventional space for creation and exhibition. A place like no other. And that’s why it deserves the detour.

After the parenthesis of the confinement, the rue de Rivoli found its shops, its passers-by, its animation. Historic artery, shopping temple and tourist centre, it is a must for Parisians and visitors alike.

If you’re staying in Paris this July, you’re sure to pass through Rue de Rivoli. At no. 59, a gigantic Haussmann-style façade catches your eye. Its decor is a clear contrast to the monotony of the street. It was designed by the artists in residence who occupy the building. And it is regularly renewed to the delight of passers-by.

Behind this façade is one of the oldest alternative places in Paris. The original squat, legalized in 2009, has become a conventional artistic pole but remains definitely singular. And it is paying off. 59 Rivoli is nowadays the third Parisian centre for the diffusion of contemporary art behind the Centre Pompidou and the Jeu de Paume national gallery.

This “factory of possibilities” hosts about thirty artists in residence. They have a workshop where they create and receive the public. Access is free and they are waiting for you!

Here you enter a laboratory of creation and experimentation where all artistic disciplines meet. This inevitably gives rise to many initiatives and events. Everything is always completely free of charge in order to make it accessible to as many people as possible.

 

In July, discover the alternative Paris and book your room at the Palym hotel.

A real eye-opener at the Museum of Illusion

 

Do you dare to dive into the fascinating world of optical illusion? Yes ? Then board now for a confusing and amusing journey to the Museum of Illusion. Located in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, this brand new museum is one of the first to reopen after the confinement.

The Museum of Illusion opened its doors at the end of December 2019. Three months later, it was forced to close them due to the coronavirus epidemic. But as soon as the deconfinement was announced, it was one of the first Parisian museums authorized to welcome the public again. An unexpected spotlight, which made it possible to make people talk about it!

The Museum of Illusion is eager to make itself known. Visitors who are lucky enough to come back and stroll in our beautiful capital, what would you say to adding this original and entertaining little museum to your program? And what’s more, it’s suitable for all generations!

Between two visits to “big” museums and mythical monuments, go to Les Halles and push the door of the Museum of Illusion. A unique experience awaits you there. Get ready to see your senses totally turned upside down. What you think you see, what you perceive, is perhaps only an illusion…

Rest assured that at each stage of the journey, you will find a rational and scientific explanation. The Museum of Illusion is thus a real treat for both the senses and the mind. The result? You will leave happy and conquered!

 

New York, Toronto, Shanghai, Dubai already had their Museum of Illusion. Paris now has its own! Come and discover it with family or friends. All the information here.

Museum of Art: a virtual museum, unique exhibitions

 

In these times of pandemic, digital technology has become valuable, especially for culture. Among the players in the sector, Universal Museum of Art is a visionary with its entirely virtual museum created in 2017 by a French start-up.

With containment, a plethora of online cultural offerings have emerged. All the museums and exhibition venues have gone to great lengths to offer you all kinds of online content: exhibitions and virtual tours, live concerts, videos and podcasts, etc.

Universal Museum of Art (UMA), for its part, did not wait for the confinement to offer its virtual museum. While all cultural sites remain closed due to the epidemic, let’s take a look at this precursor, now more than ever in the air of time!

WBU, what is it? A universal art museum. The aim of its creators? To make art accessible to everyone, anywhere, anytime, for free. To do this, the UMA team has modelled in 3D spaces that do not exist. These spaces can in fact host an unlimited number of exhibitions! And UMA does not deprive itself of this, creating exhibits that would be impossible to create in real life!

WBU, how does it work? Go to the site and choose among the exhibitions on offer. Take your time, you can wander from room to room as you wish. Are you interested in a work of art? One click, and here is its description. You can also opt for guided tours.

UMA relies on a network of partner museums, located throughout France, allowing you to access their collections… without having to travel! And if you have a virtual reality headset, it’s even better!

 

Universal Museum of Art : click, visit, enjoy.

Confinement forced us to invent new ways of doing things, of living, of visiting too! You had to cancel your stay in Paris because of Covid-19? To make a cross on this so awaited exhibition? Thanks to the virtual tours, you will still be able to push the door of several Parisian museums. In complete safety!

In May, most public places, such as museums, remain closed. But part of their collections are still accessible! So get to your keyboards to discover the digital cultural offer proposed by the Ministry of Culture via the #CultureChezNous device.

The Centre Pompidou allows you to revisit exhibitions and explore the permanent collection. All modern and contemporary art is brought into your home in the form of videos and animations!

Champs-Élysées Film Festival 2020: online and free of charge

 

In 2020, the Champs-Élysées Film Festival will be online! Due to the health crisis, the 9th edition had to be cancelled in its usual form. But you will be able to find it online and free of charge from June 9th to 16th. Cinephiles, to your screens!

Exit the crowd baths, the red seats in the cinemas, the rhinestones and sequins evenings organized in some exceptional place of the capital… You will have to be satisfied with your sofa and the digital version of the numerous directors, actors and authors participating.

Among them, two guests of honour will sponsor this rather special edition: directors Stephen Frears and Edgar Wright. You will be able to meet them during interactive masterclasses online and live!

As for the programming, it promises some nice surprises. Feature films, shorts, retrospectives, masterclasses, musical showcases and exclusive bonuses: you can enjoy everything in its entirety!

The Fab. Agnès B.: cultural and solidarity factory

 

It’s the new cultural venue in the 13th arrondissement! Opened in February 2020, the Fab. houses the contemporary art collection of agnès b., a gallery, a bookshop and 75 social housing units. One metro station away from the Palym Hotel, this is the new trendy and supportive address to discover in Paris… as soon as the health situation allows it !

The building stands on Place Jean-Michel-Basquiat, in a vibrant and promising neighbourhood. In this sober and stylish, brand new building, agnès b. wanted to honour three actions that are dear to her: artistic creation, solidarity and the environment.

For her opening exhibition, the designer, patron and collector has chosen the theme of boldness. All the pieces presented come from her private collection. An eclectic and atypical collection that will be revealed through temporary exhibitions.

Upstairs, the gallery of the day awaits you, a gallery conceived as a house where everything is for sale: paintings, sculptures, photographs, some furniture… The works, well highlighted by the refined setting, are displayed without distinction of style or period. They have only one thing in common: agnès b liked them. If you are touched by one of them, you might as well take it home with you: the price range is adapted to all budgets, assures agnès b.

The Fab. is certainly an unusual place, worth a visit. And it’s worth coming back to it (the exhibitions are subject to change every quarter). It is also an opportunity to learn about the solidarity and environmental actions carried out by the designer.

After the confinement, treat yourself to a breath of contemporary art! You can find the entire program of La Fab. agnès b. on the website: https://la-fab.com

Bercy Village: a pleasant place to walk

 

Certainly not the time for a walk because of the confinement. But nothing prevents you from writing down some good ideas for later walks. Starting from the Palym, Bercy Village and its shops are an excellent place to go for a walk, which you can extend to the nearby Bercy Park or the Fairground Arts Museum. To keep in a corner of your head and to do as soon as the health situation permits!

The walk to Bercy Village is already a pleasant journey in itself. It will make you come across the Ministry of Economy and Finance, a large stone ship anchored to the Seine. Further on, the silhouette of the Cinémathèque stands out on the edge of the Bercy Park.

At last, you’ve reached your goal! Bercy Village is a rather special enclave within the capital. Entirely pedestrian and preserved from the hustle and bustle, this complex has been built on the site of the former wine storehouses and warehouses of Bercy, which are listed as historical monuments. They now house some thirty signs.

Once you have crossed the stone arches, you are plunged into the heart of a picturesque village, with its cobbled streets, its string of shops with exposed stones and pointed roofs. It’s hard not to fall under the spell!

Outside of the confinement period, you’ll be in a hurry at any time of the day to stroll around, go shopping in the Cour Saint-Émilion, have a drink or lunch on the terrace, or treat yourself to a treat at one of the street counters. In the evening, it is the cinemas, bars and restaurants that attract night owls.

All year round, entertainment and exhibitions are organised there. The festivals, such as Christmas or Easter, are notably the occasion of sympathetic stagings and decorations. Not to be missed, especially with children!

The 13th arrondissement: the main spot for Parisian street art

 

After days and weeks of confinement, you’ll only want to get out! To combine a cultural visit with a walk in the open air, head for the 13th arrondissement of Paris. There awaits you a real open-air museum 100% street art. But be patient: venturing into the streets of Paris in tourist mode is still not on the agenda!

The 13th arrondissement had a dream: to compete with New York, Lisbon and all these great metropolises promoted to the rank of temples of urban art. The bet was a success! Thanks to the 13th arrondissement’s town hall and the Itinerrance gallery, the district has become a huge playground for street artists.

Spray graffiti, interactive installations, stencil drawings, stickers, monumental frescoes, 3D illustrations, street art works take a thousand and one forms. The 13th alone concentrates dozens of them. Thus 35 frescoes created by 26 artists are visible from the street or via line 6 of the metro.

You will therefore walk preferably with your nose up in the air, looking for these creations. There, a huge fresco, perhaps signed Shepard Fairey, C215 or Conor Harrington. Here, a colourful mosaic of the Frenchman Invader, further on a message stenciled by Miss Tic.

For the walk, you will have the choice: either wander at will through the streets of the neighbourhood and let the unexpected surprise you, or follow a route, guided or not, to make sure you don’t miss anything.

Don’t forget to push on to the Butte-aux-Cailles, which is also home to many works of art.

In May, the health situation related to the Covid-19 still requires caution and restrictions on travel. So, for the time being, we invite you to enjoy the street art course of the 13th from the comfort of your couch on the website www.boulevardparis13.com

Don’t panic, there’s no shortage of addresses in the immediate vicinity of the hotel!

From the nearest to the furthest away, a few restaurants to discover as a duo (non-exhaustive list).

Café Barjot, a 100% Parisian bistro. Red velvet benches, mirrors, subdued light, Art Deco frame and, on the plate, traditional French cuisine. A 5-minute walk from the Palym Hotel, this address will appeal to those nostalgic for the breweries of yesteryear.

Maguey, handsome and good. Here, no map. You choose two adjectives and they will articulate the meal you will enjoy. An original concept, delicious dishes and a warm setting. Success guaranteed!

VIP Paris Yacht Hotel, to captivate your heart. What could be more romantic than a dinner on the Seine? Moored on the Quai de la Rapée, this hotel-restaurant boat serves a fine cuisine. To be enjoyed while admiring the illuminated monuments that parade along the cruise.

Trips to the Mediterranean at the Atelier des lumières

 

Renoir, Monet, Chagall… From February 28th, L’Atelier des lumières takes you to the shores of the Mediterranean in the footsteps of some twenty artists. A new digital and luminous creation, to be savoured without moderation as a foretaste of summer.

Since its opening in 2018, the Atelier des lumières has established itself as the capital’s new must-see cultural and artistic venue. After Klimt and Van Gogh, he invites you for a new immersion.

Monet, Renoir, Signac, Derain, Vlaminck, Matisse, Bonnard, Chagall… Through seven sequences, the artistic currents and their greatest representatives follow one another. On the walls of this former foundry converted into an art centre, and on the floor, the works are projected, immense, radiant, colourful, they encompass everything, flooding the room and visitors.

From Impressionism to Modernism, including Pointillism and Fauvism, among others, the exhibition focuses on the link between artistic creation and the Mediterranean shores. All these currents have in common their new approach to light and colour, here admirably highlighted.

You don’t need to know anything about art to enjoy the trip. Proof if proof were needed, the joy of the toddlers, crawling in the coloured light, trying to capture the moving images.

In total, more than 500 works come to life, recomposing line after line, giving the illusion of a shimmering sea and a sparkling sun.

At the same time, and still in homage to the Mediterranean, you will also discover a short programme entitled “Yves Klein, l’infini bleu” (Yves Klein, the infinite blue).

In March, treat yourself to a round-trip Paris-Mediterranean trip to the Atelier des lumières.

Visit the Opera Bastille!

 

In Paris, old stones are popular with tourists: Notre-Dame cathedral, the Louvre palace, the Arc de Triomphe, Pont-Neuf… How about a change and a visit to a modern monument equipped with the latest technology? The great theatre of the Opera Bastille opens its doors to the public during guided tours. A unique opportunity to go behind the scenes…

The French capital is full of heritage treasures that have survived through the centuries. But some of them, without being so old, also constitute a full part of the Parisian heritage. This is the case of the Opéra Bastille. Inaugurated in 1989 and designed by the architect Carlos Ott, this large modern theatre with a glass façade sits majestically on Place de la Bastille.

Maybe you already know him from a concert, ballet, opera? How would you like to go backstage now? For 1 hour and a half, a guide and lecturer takes you into the bowels of this fabulous opera city. And explains everything.

The Opéra Bastille conceals spectacular machinery and stage equipment of incredible dimensions. See for example the orchestra pit that can accommodate up to 130 musicians. Did you know that in addition to the main stage there is a rehearsal stage, of the same dimensions and with its own pit? That’s not all. The Opera houses workshops, storage facilities and employs hundreds of people. Stage technicians, sculptors and painters, seamstresses and hairdressers… a veritable anthill at the service of art!

The tour includes the public foyers, the auditorium and the backstage area of the theatre. A unique discovery that the guide will spice up small and big stories about this high place of culture.
