Art fans, these are the five can’t-miss museums and exhibitions in Paris we have selected in December.

1. Marcel Duchamp at Centre Pompidou, for nonconformist fans
Why is it worth it? Want to see the Joconde wearing a moustache and a goatee? French artist and painter Marcel Duchamp is considered by some as one of the most provocative artists of the 20th century. He’s also the inventor of readymade and he used to say: “An ordinary object [could be] elevated to the dignity of a work of art by the mere choice of an artist.” Most of his paintings will go back to Philadelphia at the end of the exhibition, January 5, 2015. Book here.

2. Sade at the Musée d’Orsay, for the free minded
Why is it worth it? Violence, art and sexuality are all at once here to celebrate how Marquis de Sade changed things in arts, even two hundred years after his death. Creations by Cézanne, Ingres, Delacroix, Goya, Picasso, Rodin celebrate themes such as social disorder, body representations, violence and sexuality. Sulphurous but unmissable. Book here.

3. William Eggleston at the Fondation Cartier Bression, for photograph fans
Why is it worth it? First, this exhibition tells you the story of how colour photos change the history of photography. Then, it also perfectly portrays the American way of life in the early 70s.

4. Paul McCarthy’s Chocolate factory at La Monnaie de Paris, for disruptive minds
Why is it worth it? This exhibition is a crazy installation recreating a real chocolate factory with amazing and delirious engines as well as chocolate in every room. Come discover and play in the mind of this disruptive artist who tries here to criticise modern societies consumption of goods.

5. Christian Lacroix at the Musée Cognac-Jay, for fashion fans
Why is it worth it? This exhibition focuses on “the costume”, a theme the designer excels at. His own choices of works and frames for this special occasion will revisit art and design from the Age of Enlightenment (or Age of Reason, in the 18th century).
