The Paris List: Small Bites

  • Paris-Leo-Greenfield-Vicki Archer

This summer in Paris there are some delectable small bites.

Yes, definitely see the major blockbusters showing around town but don’t miss some of the smaller exhibitions on show.

The Paris List: Small Bites

Sèvres Outdoors


Many contemporary galleries are moving their artwork outside to the gardens of the Cité de la Céramique at Sèvres. A selection of sculptures and installations are finding new homes – works by Johan Creten, Laurent Tixador and Mathieu Mercier. Whilst exploring the gardens, expect to see a crazy chandelier, upside down umbrellas and short film screenings – it’s a joyous exhibition for when the sun is shining.

The exhibition brings the animated characters to life, and shows the viewer the process from an initial idea for a character, through to designing sets and producing the final films – it’s fun for all the family.

I do believe Paris can only be consumed in small bites because there is SO much to indulge on! The eight days that I was there are a blurr…like my recent return to my honeymoon site of 33 years ago, I was able to finally SEE MORE as an older woman. I must do the same with Paris. I must take smaller bites..


Vicki, This I believe when I go to France, I must stay a month or longer!!
So much to enjoy and not miss!
