Discover “Japon-Japonismes” at Musée des Arts Décoratifs

Discover “Japon-Japonismes” at Musée des Arts Décoratifs

It would be kamikaze to miss the Japonismes 2018 program: Close to a hundred films to be seen or seen again at the Cinematheque, painters, contemporary dance, puppets, noh theater, manga, judo, cooking, Zen, tea, there is something for everyone. Saké as never before!

Since it is not possible to chronicle everything, we will focus on the exhibition that will take over the Musée des Arts Décoratifs until next spring. What will visitors see? Objects of art and design, fashion creations and photos that shed light on the reciprocal influence that the West and Japan have had on each other since 1867. It’s a safe bet that you can pick up some decorating ideas for your home, meant to become a real traditional Japanese house – a haven of peace in which you will only appear in kimonos.

 

From 15th November to 3rd March 2019
