Must see exhibitions in Paris, spring 2007 by Suvi-Elina
If you are in Paris this spring there are at least two exhibitions you should visit. The first one is David Lynch- The air is on fire and second one Jean-Paul Gaultier-La Defile, opened last week in Musee de la Mode et du Textile.
The Foundation Cartier pour l'art contemporain presents The air is on fire, an exhibition devoted to the multifaced visual art creations of David Lynch. This event marks the first time that the filmmaker has made a large number of paintings, photographs, drawings, alternative films and sound productions reconstruct his childhood experience , his adolsecent, fantasies and his adult preoccupations. Lynch's sense of humor is also present in the difficult issues his paintings tackle. The exhibition is about David Lynch's "behind the scenes" artistic expression and it's first time available for public.

Jean-Paul Gaultier designed the costumes of some 18 ballets choreographed by Régine Chopinot from 1983 to 1994. To celebrate the couturier’s thirty years of creation in 2007 and the costumes’ transfer from the Centre Choréographique de La Rochelle to the Musée de la Mode et du Textile, this exhibition will retrace the history of this assiduous collaboration between couturier and choreographer for the first time. Examples of Jean-Paul Gaultier’s haute couture will also be shown.
