Famous as an art hub, Paris offers every month one of the greatest array of exhibitions in the world. We’ve selected five must-see exhibits in June nearing their last days, recommended for all art lovers to enjoy in Paris.

Bruce Nauman

Already in its last days, the Bruce Nauman Exhibit at the Fondation Cartier of contemporary art has met with huge success. Focusing solely on the American artist Bruce Nauman, the exhibit presents a holistic and diverse view from his older to more recent works. Using different materials such as sculpture, performance, videos, drawings, and holographs, the audience is captured by the immersive nature of this electrifying experience.

When? From March 14th to June 21st, 2015. Open from Tuesday to Sunday from 11am to 8pm. Where? 261, boulevard Raspail, 75014 Paris. Metro: Denfert-Rochereau (Lines 4 and 6).

La Dolce Vita? From Liberty to Italian Design (1900-1940)

The Musée d’Orsay is hosting an exposition on the development of Italian Art Deco in the beginning of the 20th century. This exhibit is particularly interesting in light of how an “Italian Style” was constructed, in the context of the then-new nationalistic fervors. A chronological display of artistic development from Liberty to Futurism to “Modern” is laid out to understand aesthetic developments on a deeper scale.

When? From April 13th to September 14th, 2015. Open from Tuesday to Sunday from 9:30am to 6pm, with exceptional nocturnal viewings on Thursdays until 9:45pm. Where? 1, rue de la Légion d’Honneur, 75007 Paris. Metro: Solferino (Line 12).

Antonioni, Origins of Pop

La Cinémathèque Française opens its doors for an exposition on the life, works, and influences of Italian filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni (1912-2007). By combining visual arts with an intimate appreciation of his life (through personal manuscripts, for example), the audience is led on an artistic and personal journey. Perfect for Italian film lovers.

When? From April 9th to July 19th, 2015. Open on Mon/Wed/Thurs/Fri/Sat from 12pm to 7pm, with exceptional nocturnal viewings on Thursdays until 10pm and Sundays from 10am to 8pm. Where? 51 rue de Bercy, 75012 Paris. Metro: Bercy (Lines 6 and 14).

From Giotto to Caravaggio: The Passions of Roberto Longhi

A magnificent exhibit at the Jacquemart-André Museum until the end of July, From Giotto to Caravaggio is a collection of Italian paintings from the 14th-17th century put together by the art critic Roberto Longhi, including Piero della Francesca, Ribera, and Caravaggio. For the first time in France, major works under the Roberto Longhi Foundation as well as from other French and Italian museums will be presented under one roof for a monumental and intense display of artistic passion.

expo de Giotto au Caravage, by The Tourist in Paris

When? From 27th March to 20th July, 2015. Open every day (including holidays) from 10am to 6pm. Where? 158 boulevard Haussmann 75008 Paris. Metro: Miromesnil (Lines 9 and 13).

Napoleon and Paris: Dreams of a Capital

For those who love the capital, go visit the Carnavalet Museum in the Marais district to experience an exhibit dedicated to the history of Paris. Focusing on the relationship between Napoleon and the City of Lights, this exhibit illuminates the development of the city during this era through urbanism projects and monument constructions heralded by Napoleon, all within its historico-political context.

When? From April 8th to August 30th, 2015. Open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm, with last entry at 5pm. Where? 16 rue Franc-Bourgeois, 75003 Paris. Metro: Saint-Paul (Line 1).
