The Musée Guimet, or the national museum of Asian art, is perhaps one of the lesser-known galleries in art-obsessed Paris. The exhibition Touch Fire: Women Ceramists in Japan, promises an exciting display of the works of the first generation of Japanese female ceramists who, in post-war culture, were finally able to enter into the previously male-only world of Japanese ceramics. The show features a profound display of sculptural, organic forms of clay and porcelain, juxtaposing works from older, post-war artists, such as Ono Hakuko and Koike Shoko, with those of more contemporary female ceramists, such as Tanaka Yu and Fukumoto Fuku.

Where: Musée national des arts asiatiques Guimet (“Musée Guimet”), 6 Place d’Iéna, 75116 Paris
When: Through 3 October 2022

8. Explore Frida Kahlo: Beyond Appearances

Frida Kahlo just may be one of the most well-known and beloved female artists in the world. Her pieces evoke female strength and solitude; her range of colour and subject is simultaneously whimsical and tenacious. This autumn, the Palais Galliera seeks to exhibit—and celebrate—the lesser-known Kahlo with its retrospective on the artist, Frida Kahlo: Beyond Appearances. To create a thematic, visual narrative of the artist’s life, visitors will be able to explore items from Kahlo’s childhood home, the Casa Azul (which until recently had been placed under seal by Kahlo’s husband Diego Rivera), Kahlo’s collection of Tehuana dresses, pre-Columbian jewellery, as well as films and photographs of the artist. The exhibit will also showcase Kahlo’s influence on modern fashion, showing various esteemed designers’ contemporary collections inspired by the artist.

Where: Palais Galliera, 10 Avenue Pierre 1er de Serbie, 75116 Paris
When: 15 September 2022 – 5 March 2023
