There will be two more performances held [...]

Pont de Arts

Friday night at the Pont de Arts is the closest thing to Dolores Park that I have found in Paris. It was so fun chilling on the ‘boardwalk,’ pre-partying/picnicking with randoms before it was time to hit the clubs. Great way to start the  night (esp now that’s its warm!!)

C’est la vie!

If you like skulls…you’ll love this exhibit at the Musee Maillol. They have amazing and creative depictions of this object by everyone from Damien Hirst to Basquiat to Braque. The museum is very small, but the exhibit has some interesting selections worth seeing.

May day

The weather warmed up just in time for my first day on break. Literally wandered the city for hours…my new favorite area is the St. Martin Canal…so may cool bars, side streets, parks and restaurants!  The quai of the canals were teaming with people enjoying the sun and drinking beer. Hotel du Nord lured me [...]

World Cup-inspired ads are starting to pop up in the subways. I didn’t understand why they were in English. Were they intended for the tourists? Then my French friend said, “you know…like the Bee Gees!”  haha. my mistake.

Wall of Seperation

Writing my paper on Street Art, I have become reaquanted with some old favorites, such as works by Banksy on Israel’s West Bank barrier.  The ‘Wall of Separation’ stricks a chord with me every time. Aside from its cheeky wit and beauty, you can see how location is made a major component of the resulting [...]

Topographie Anecdotee du Skateboard

This 40-minute documentary by Raphael Zarka was one of those films you want to own, and play in the background while you are lounging at home. The stunning footage (I loved the segments on 1970s skate culture in California), is complimented by a fantastic soundtrack.  Check it out now at the Palais du Tokyo. The [...]
