CAM 
55 rue au Maire, 75003 Paris
At CAM, it’s a joyfully messy setting. Scratched walls, old parquet flooring, marble countertop, you feel good there. Behind his glass kitchen, South Korean chef Esu Lee sends Asian cuisine without false notes based on excellent products.

Billili 
136 rue du Faubourg Poissonnière, 75010 Paris

Open kitchen, rough stone wall, formica tables… Billili, little sister of Les Arlots, a wine bar where you can come and taste the dozen dishes to share, or simply taste good natural wines without breaking the bank.

    Fantaisies. Jacques Henri Lartigue, décors et haute couture

    The Louis-Senlecq Museum of Art and History invites you to discover an unknown part of Jacques Henri Lartigue’s work, created on the fringes of his production as a painter and photographer.
    The event aims to show for the first time the graphic work of Jacques Henri Lartigue in a free and original form and gives a vision of the artist as a creative all-round creator, more interested in the creative process than in the final object, passing lightly and at the same time with great rigour from one technique to another.

    Fantasies
    Louis-Senlecq Museum of Art and History
    From 12.05.19 to 22.09.19 // 2pm -18pm from Wednesday to Sunday

    La Maison Marocaine De La Photographie carte blanche to Hassan Hajjaj

    Although known for his photographic portraits, Hassan Hajjaj is a self-taught artist who does not freeze in any genre or form. He thus moves from installation to video, and explores the field of fashion but also other fields of contemporary creation. With humour, sometimes and consciously drawing towards kitsch, his works bring together the most tenacious clichés and the most representative icons of his two cultures, of origin and adoption.

    Bacon en toutes lettres
    La maison Européenne de la Photographie
    From 11.09.19 10 17.11.19 // Open Wednesday to Sunday, 11am – 8pm Closed Mondays, Tuesdays and public holidays
    5/7 Rue de Fourcy – 75004 Paris
