Thought-pro­vok­ing art ex­hibits and on-stage per­for­mances to ex­pe­ri­ence this sea­son.

LU­CIEN CLERGUE, A PROTÉGÉ OF PABLO PI­CASSO, is known for his bold, nude im­ages from the sex­ual rev­o­lu­tion of the ’60s and ’70s. Yet, a post­hu­mous re­cent dis­cov­ery of seven ad­di­tional al­bums of the French pho­tog­ra­pher’s work has re­vealed that his sub­ject mat­ter was much more di­verse. In a new ex­hi­bi­tion, cu­rated and de­signed by François Hé­bel and Chris­tian Lacroix, a more com­plete scope of art from Clergue’s ca­reer is shown as a tes­ta­ment to his skill and orig­i­nal­ity. Lu­cien Clergue: The First Al­bums is on dis­play at the Grand Palais in Paris from No­vem­ber 14, 2015–Feb­ru­ary 15, 2016.
