The precursor to the Renaissance at the Louvre

Giotto left behind a large body of work which marked a new era in painting. The painter was responsible for the frescoes in the Church of Santa Croce in Florence, the Church of St. Francis in Assisi and the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua. He also executed many works in Rome, including in St. Peter's Basilica.
The Louvre Museum pays a tribute to Giotto through this exhibition which combines drawings, paintings and sculptures.

from the 28/ 5/ 2013 until the 1 / 9/ 2013Lorna Simpson
The Jeu de Paume presents 30 years of Lorna Simpson’s work. Lorna Simpson became known in the 1980s and 90s for her photographs and films that shook up the conventions of gender, identity, culture and memory. Throughout her work, the artist tackles the complicated representation of the black body, using different media, while her texts add a significance that always remains open to the spectator’s imagination.
In her recent work, Lorna Simpson has integrated archive images, which she reinvents by positioning herself in them as subject.
