To celebrate its 40th anniversary, the Centre Pompidou chose the Monnaie de Paris to exhibit a series of beautiful sculptures by Marcel Duchamp, Pipilotti Rist, Robert Smithson, James Lee Byars and Alberto Giacometti. The exhibition « À Pied d'œuvre(s) » focuses on an essential subject in the history of sculpture of the 20th Century : the transition from the purely vertical aspect of the monument to one encompassing horizontality and its immediate relationship with the ground — source.

A group of bloggers and I were kindly invited to a private visit of this exhibition last week and we had the loveliest tour guide explaining and describing the different pieces showcased at the museum. I found the exhibition quite interesting and very different from the other exhibitions that I have attended. I have to say, my favorite piece was probably the room in which the word 'vivre' (meaning 'to live') was written all over the floor multiple times. It was very intriguing and quite an original idea. The exhibition is open until the 9th of July, in case you're in the area! More info here : monnaiedeparis.fr

London Photo Diary

Oh London, I forgot how fun you were. Caroline had tickets for the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play in London last weekend and it just happened to be the weekend after my birthday! So I decided to take a day off from work and head to London... as you do.

Caroline and I hadn't seen each other since December (she works in Dubai) so it was nice to see her for a little while before the big move. We celebrated my birthday with an afternoon tea at Sketch, watched both parts of the play (it was long, but definitely worth it), walked around Notting hill and visited the British museum, something I wasn't able to do the last time I was in London. I hope you're all doing great. Until next time!

1. The stunning ceiling at musée Jacquemart-André. I sometimes find myself more drawn to the museum's architecture than to the exhibition itself. 2. A photo from my Sunday morning run.

Moving to Boston

Boston, MA by Dear Laura Well the secret's out — I'm moving to Boston! I cannot tell you how happy and excited I am to be starting this new chapter of my life in August 2017.

You might remember back in March when I spent a weekend in Boston and said it was for something quite exciting. Well, this is IT. This is the exciting news! I was just waiting for my visa to get approved before saying anything on the blog. I'm definitely incredibly sad of leaving Paris, my home, my friends, the food, oh the food, the haussmannian architecture, the beautiful beautiful art museums — yes I know, there are lots of art museums in Boston as well, but nothing really beats the museums here in Paris, am I right? As my dad always says, the city itself is a museum. Nonetheless, I'm very excited for this new beginning. Right now, with everything that's happened the past couple of months, with the way I've been feeling, changing scenery, meeting new people and breathing fresh air is exactly what I need.

Cheers to new beginnings!
