Cultural Events: Exhibitions and Expositions Around The World, March Edition

If you find yourself complaining about having nothing to do, here are a few suggestion around the world's most popular cities for you to choose from.  Because life is too short to spend it inside. 
Paris

 
Saut Hermès: a night-time gallop at the Grand Palais

Wager won, Paris conquered. In seven years, the Saut Hermès at the Grand Palais has become an unmissable sporting event, which brings the international show-jumping elite together in the heart of the French capital. The celebration has always been stunning and it will be so again on the 17th, 18th and 19th March 2017.

Pad Paris+Art and Design

PAD, pioneering event for Art and Design aficionados and collectors, has been reinventing for the past 20 years the Cabinet d’Amateur and the notion of eclecticism, anticipating the esthetic aspirations of its time. Season after season, it offers an intimate cocoon to those who have made decorative arts and design the core of their collection, driven by passion and heritage.  From March 22-26.

New York

Paul Kasmin Gallery presents Les Lalanne, featuring over 20 recent and historical works from the pioneering French sculptors, Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne. The exhibition will be on view March 16 to April 22, 2017 at 293 Tenth Avenue.


London


"Moving Kate showcases Kate Moss as seen by 30 of the world's most exciting contemporary fashion illustrators and creatives including Unskilled Worker, Jenifer Corker and Nick Knight himself. Featuring footage from SHOWstudio’s exclusive archives, the exhibition includes a range of fashion films, specially-commissioned illustrations, and 3D printed sculptures all capturing Moss's ability to surprise and transform before the camera." Through April 4th.



Explore the work of designer and artist Josef Frank (1885-1967) in the first-ever UK exhibition of his textiles. The Austrian-born architect moved to Sweden in 1933, where he developed his colourful brand of modernism, working with Estrid Ericson on furniture, glassware, lighting and interior design ideas. Together they redefined what is regarded as Swedish Modern. This exhibition in association with Millesgården, Stockholm highlights Frank’s vibrant fabric designs for Svenskt Tenn alongside a number of his previously unknown watercolours.



From her first public appearances in 1981, Diana, Princess of Wales, captivated the world’s attention as a princess, as a trendsetter and as a patron and advocate of charities. Twenty years on from her death, a new exhibition and temporary garden celebrating her life will be opened at Kensington Palace, her home for over 15 years.

Madrid

Bacon: The Question of Drawings

Francis Bacon (Dublin, 1909 - Madrid, 1992) is one of the leading painters of neo-figurative art in post-war Europe. But he was also a gifted draughtsman, even when he denied this aspect of his work in more than one interview. This exhibition shows a selection of Bacon’s drawings, pastels and collages.  Until May 21.
