Grand Palais

In addition to hosting Karl Lagerfeld’s spectacular shows, which have featured by turns a replica of the Eiffel Tower, a space rocket and a waterfall, the Grand Palais is home to temporary exhibitions such as the FIAC international art fair, and a permanent museum that stages blockbuster shows, such as the 2009 exhibition “Picasso and the Masters,” which was seen by close to 800,000 people. Currently, visitors can catch “Kupka: Pioneer of Abstraction,” which provides an overview of early 20th-century Czech painter František Kupka’s career, alongside “Artists & Robots,” which showcases works by some 40 artists produced with the help of increasingly sophisticated robots.

France – Arles, Roman and Romanesque Monuments

Why Gucci’s resort show for 2019 at the Alyscamps in the Provencal city of Arles, France is set to be total Instabait.

Come resort season, Gucci is known for their roaming runways with previous shows set in New York’s DIA-Art Foundation, the Cloisters at Westminster Abbey in London and the Palatina Gallery in Florence’s Palazzo Pitti, but for 2019, they’re taking it to a whole new level and it might just be the most Instagrammable one yet.

Gucci’s Alessandro Michele chose another culturally important site for his fourth Cruise collection for the Italian house.

Next May 30, the international fashion community will find itself in Arles, France. Gucci’s Alessandro Michele will stage the label’s Cruise 2019 show in the Provençal city—not at the Jenga-like Frank Gehry building going up on Avenue Victor Hugo, but rather at Alyscamps, a millennia-old necropolis and a UNESCO World Heritage Site just outside the town’s limits. Michele has chosen culturally significant locations for all three of his preceding Gucci Cruise collections: New York’s Dia Art Foundation in 2015, Westminster Abbey in London in 2016, and (when the Parthenon in Athens, his first choice, wasn’t available ), the Palatina Gallery in Florence’s Palazzo Pitti last May.
