What to do in Paris this Spring

Find below 6 Must-See exhibitions in Paris this Spring:

Palais Galliera, until July 15th
This exhibition, the first retrospective in Paris devoted to Belgian fashion designer Martin Margiela, traces the career, from 1989 to 2009, of a designer who not only questioned the structure of garments but also challenged the structure of the fashion system.
Using more than 130 silhouettes, videos of défilés, House archives and special installations, the Margiela / Galliera exhibition offers us an unprecedented look at one of the most influential contemporary fashion designers. 

Musée Maillol, until July 15th
The Musée Maillol presents an exhibition to the Japanese artist, Léonard Tsuguharu Foujita.
The exhibition traces the story of a unique destiny, that of an artist evolving between two cultures. From his beginnings in Japan, through his ascent and the revelation of his work, his career will lead him to the creation of this character so unique in the Parisian context of the Roaring Twenties. Fifty years after Foujita's death in 1968, the Musée Maillol is honored with the luminous and rare work of the most oriental painter of Montparnasse. 

Musée du Luxembourg, until July 1st
Celebrating the 500th anniversary of his birth, this exhibition traces the rise of Tintoretto and the decisive years of his career. It will explore how he built himself to become the most brilliant representative of the Venetian Mannerism.

Diane Vernet, who has collected artist’s jewellery (Alexander Calder, Jeff Koons, Pablo Picasso, Niki de Saint Phalle, César…) for more than thirty years, is sharing her passion for these miniature artworks that often echo the artist’s formal language. Her collection of some 230 pieces, complemented by exceptional loans from galleries, collectors and the artists’ families. 

Musée Jacquemart-André, until July 23rd
The Musée Jacquemart-André will be holding a major retrospective devoted to Mary Cassatt (1844–1926).
