Keith Haring is in the spotlight this year. While simultaneously will soon begin an exhibition at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and the 104, Colette has two exhibitions: Keith Haring and the Fashion by Maripol & Scene by Jeannette Montgomery Barron.
Known for her publications in Interview, Vanity Fair, Vogue or Detail, Jeannette Montgomery Barron presents a series of portraits of the underground culture of the 80s in New York, from her book, Scene. She has met and photographed the whole art scene of the time in full swing. We find great figures from the History of modern art as Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cindy Sherman, Willem Dafoe, Andy Warhol, Robert Mappelthorpe or Bianca Jagger.
The Art Bookstore of Le Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris presents exclusively her magnificent portfolio, Session with Keith Haring, with 20 gelatin silver prints, limited to 2 copies (ed. Holzwarth, Berlin 2006). Amazing !

For its 41st edition, the Festival d'Automne becomes monographic. French choreographer Maguy Marin's works are presented in nine venues of Paris and its surroundings through six pieces including a new creation for the Ballet de l'opéra de Lyon. In collaboration with composer Denis Mariotte, Maguy Marin creates ballets of a new kind, sometimes close to art performances which try to describe today's world through its movements and symbols: masks, videos, sunglasses, Coca-cola bottles...
We can only encourage you to (re) discover this choreographer who leaves no one indifferent.
Venues: Théâtre de la ville, Théâtre du Rond- Point, Théâtre de la Bastille, Centquatre, Théâtre de la Cité internationale, Théâtre national de Chaillot, Maison des arts de Créteil, Théâtre de Saint Quentin en Yvelines, Cinémathèque de la Danse

Dear artforbreakfast fan,
Guess who's the luckiest girl in town?
In "my best time ever in Paris" collection I remember as if it was yesterday the opening of the exhibition ABECEDAIRE presented by Marie Laure de Decker at la galerie du passage. There was something magical : dancers on stilts fascinated us all, the intimate atmosphere despite the crowds and the paparazzi flash warmed us, not as much as the presence of the artist ... Each of the photographs in this exhibition dedicated to her grandson Altai tells her life with poetry and conviction.

Until November the 4th, at la galerie du Passage, 20-26 galerie Véro-Dodat, 75001 Paris.

This week, Art for Breakfast offers you the opportunity to rediscover, we hope with pleasure, the incredible Yayoi Kusama.
The 83-years old Japanese plastic artist, as eccentric as ever, was in the spotlight this year, first invited by the centre Pompidou for her first retrospective then by the Tate Modern in London.
A double coronation truly deserved by one of the most, if not the most emblematical of our current contemporary artists.
To learn more about her fascinating obsessions and the path of this great artist, all you have to do is follow the link below!

The exhibition at the Jeu de Paume on the photograph Eva Besnyö presents us with black and white photographs on her favorite subjects. Portraits, of course, which are, beyond simple portrayals, real testimonies of the artist's activism. Feminist, she captures protests she was a part of but also simple intimate moments. Her affiliation to the avant-garde of her time can be found in her photographs of new architectures and in her way of shooting, linking her to both the New Vision and the New Objectivity movements. This exhibition strives to uncover the different facets of her work and to explore the different places that influenced both her life and work. We can thus admire snapshots of Berlin where she met and associated with her contemporaries like the sculptor Lazlo Moholy-Nagy, but also of the Netherlands. These pictures show both the busy Amsterdam and remote locations of the Dutch countryside. In every single of the photographs presented we can find the social combat of Eva Besnyö which explains the title of the exhibition: The Sensuous image.
