Moscow, Florence, London and Paris: arts flourishing across Europe.

Jan Fabre. Spiritual Guards


Where: Florence, Italy – Palazzo Vecchio and Piazza della Signoria
When: Until October 2, 2016

“Spiritual Guards” is an exhibition in Florence by Belgian contemporary and provocative artist Jan Fabre. It features roughly 100 of his works dating from 1978 to 2016, including bronze and wax sculptures, and two monumental sculptures on Piazza della Signoria. Palazzo Vecchio is also showcasing a series of Fabre’s sculptures coated in beetle shells. The “guards” in the title of the exhibition in fact refer to Fabre’s army of bronze beetles.

The Douanier Rousseau. Archaic Candour

Where: Paris, France – Musée d’Orsay
When: Until July 17, 2016

A retrospective at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris explores the work and legacy of painter Henri Rousseau. Known as “Le Douanier” for his day job as a toll collector, he was often dismissed as a Sunday painter. But his influence on European modernism is now indisputable.
