Immerse yourself in Emily’s arty Paris!

Season 3 ofEmily in Paris barely launched on Netflix and here is Paname already invaded by a horde of fluorescent pink berets. If we, real Parisians, are mean enough to rack up 10 bucks for a coffee with a view of the Eiffel Tower, we nevertheless really enjoyed all of Emily’s cultural outings. Orsay, Versailles, Perrotin, the Museum of Fairground Arts or the Atelier des Lumières, art holds a nice place in the fantasized capital of the series. A brief overview.

The Perrotin Gallery

Emily’s friend and rival, Camille (played by Camille Razat) is a gallery owner. And not just anywhere. It’s at Perrotin that the most Parisian of the cast works, and the famous antenna of the Marais appears several times in the series. Founded in 1990 by Emmanuel Perrotin, this behemoth of contemporary art is located in the most arty district of Paris, in the heart of the 3rd arrondissement, a stone’s throw from the Picasso Museum. If, in the series, the protagonists go there above all to hang out at the vernissages, coupe de champ’ in hand, the Perrotin gallery is above all a space where you can see star artists. Sophie Calle, Maurizio Cattelan or the late Pierre Soulages, so many blazes that we can (re)discover over the programming of the gallery Parisian.

The Workshop of Lights

We don’t know why, but Americans seem to think that we French people spend our time making plans… no, “threesomes”. This shot reaches its climax in episode 5 of season 1, when Emily, Camille and Gabriel (played by Lucas Bravo) go to theLights Workshop to the exhibition Van Gogh. The opportunity for the couple to remember a crazy night under the stars, putting little Emily very uncomfortable. Located in the 11th arrondissement, the Atelier des Lumières is an immersive art center that offers shows combining art history, sound and light and allows you to stroll through the very heart of works of art. And we tell you exclusively: the next show will be dedicated to Chagall and Paul Klee!

The Museum of Fairground Arts

Ah, that, the Savoir agency knows how to party! For the promotional evening for a luxury jewelry brand represented by the com box, Emily’s office has set its sights on the Fairground Arts Museum to have a party in the middle of the rides. Located in the 12th arrondissement within the Pavillons de Bercy, the Musée des Arts Forains is a simply magical place that has made a huge comeback (after months of forced closure) with its Wonderful Festival, which we see in the background in episode 7 of season 1. And in real life, what do we see there? Permanent exhibition and temporary exhibitions bring together many rides and attractions dating from the beginning of the 20th century, which you can try out. The opportunity to admire music hall costumes and accessories, a modern grand piano or giant puppets.

The Palace of Versailles

It is this time for the parade of Grégory Dupree (played by Jeremy O. Harris) that the merry band of Savoir goes to Versailles in episode 10 of season 2. The show, entitled “Let Them Have Cake ” – or in VF “Let them eat brioche” in reference to the legendary empathy of Marie Antoinette –, takes place in the impressive Hall of Mirrors and reinterprets the codes of royalty in a very sofiacoppolesque rendering. If the Palace of Versailles was the small pied-à-terre of the Sun King, today the Grand Palace has become a center of contemporary art. Each year, a carte blanche is granted to an internationally renowned visual artist who installs his monumental works within the spaces of the castle. Have thus succeeded Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, Joana Vasconcelos, Anish Kapoor or Olafur Eliasson.

The Paris Mint

As we know, life in Paris is all macaroons and Fashion Week (no). It is therefore no surprise that episode 9 of season 1 takes place in the middle of Fashion Week. Represented by the Savoir agency, the super character of Pierre Cadault (Jean-Christophe Bouvet) puts on a memorable show at the Money of Paris. Founded in 864, the Monnaie de Paris has occupied 11 quai de Conti since 1775. In 2017, Monnaie de Paris opened a museum and now unveils priceless treasures to the public, each one more bling than the next. At the same time, exhibitions punctuate the life of the institution, whether they focus on gold and silver Coins and Wonderscurrently in programming, or that they highlight the work of contemporary artists like Maurizio Cattelan (him again) or Kiki Smith.

The Orsay museum

In the same episode, Camille and Gabriel find themselves at the Musée d’Orsay, and after a stroll through the Impressionist works, the couple decides to get married! It must be said that the atmosphere of the old station is very romantic and Lucas Bravo, the interpreter of Gabriel, has also told Netflix that it was his favorite museum. Exhibiting the largest impressionist collection in the world, this cult venue is one of the essential addresses for art lovers in Paris. Because in addition to its rich permanent collection, its temporary programming gives it the status of untouchable museum in Paris. The proof: we loved the retrospective dedicated to Edvard Munch and we are already extremely impatient to discover the double expo Monet/Degasfrom March 14!
