After FOMO, long live JOMO, what’s new in September?
A rich and inspired cultural return, shamanic and extreme for fashion like the state of our planet and our taste for dystopic stories (thanks Netflix), bulimic as always for books (567 books), Japanese and iconic for the arts with an apotheosis at the time of the Fiac week on which we will return, and the opening of new places (theaters and foundations). How to find your way around and not get caught up, especially since the time is at JOMO (Joy of missing out!) after the famous FOMO (fear of missing) which makes event organizers tremble.
The trend is to let go and detoxify digitally on a background of fake news and overheating.
So let’s focus on the best in what sometimes looks like a race for audience and like!
A small stylish and essential guide:
Michael Jackson at the Grand Palais opens the ball, while the Japanese wave continues to break with Kohei Nawa at the Louvre and the Musée de la Chasse. Egon Schiele and Jean-Michel Basquiat flirt with extremes at the Louis Vuitton Foundation while Picasso’s Masterpieces are gathered in his museum, Mucha at the Musée du Luxembourg and Le Caravage at Jacquemart André.
Tomas Seraceno at the Palais de Tokyo, Dorothea Langue and Ana Mendieta, Franz West at the Centre Pompidou, Madagascar at the Quai Branly Museum, Agnès bwhich opens the FAB, and the Cartier Bresson Foundation in the marsh, a ‘Nuit Blanche en constellations’ signed Gaël Charbau for contemporary art we are served!
