From Marie-Antoinette to Louise Bourgeois

The upcoming major exhibitions in Paris seem to have a certain logic. 2 of them, the most conveyed ones, deal with 2 great woman personalities.

The Grand Palais is hosting "Marie-Antoinette" from March 15th to June 30th, a major event, tracing back the life of one of the last queens of France, and giving a better insight in her private life, from her childhood at Schönbrunn up to her last moments at the guillotine.
The Centre Pompidou will be presenting the first extensive retrospective showcasing Louise Bourgeois' work since the exhibition at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris in 1995. This retrospective has been organised with the London Tate Modern.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
