Welcome to the October 2017 issue of “What’s up in Paris”.
This monthly magazine is dedicated to everything you need to experience, see, listen to and do in Paris!
So, stay with us and discover the “What’s up in Paris” selection of the events you shouldn’t miss in October 2017!

Experience:
Have you always dreamed of being an archaeologist, anthropologist or ethnologist? Now your dream can come true for a day or more at the “Fête de la Science” at the Musée du Quai Branly – Jacques Chirac. From 7 to 15 October, workshops such as “Archaeological Mission” will be giving families and children an opportunity to learn more about archaeology through a reconstructed excavation site for the youngsters. Your mission is to find traces of a pre-Colombian civilisation, then compare your findings with the collections on show in the museum to learn more about Central American cultures. On the “History of Ethnology” tour, you can set off in the footsteps of France’s great ethnologists, such as Georges Condominas and Claude Levi-Strauss as you view the museum’s collections. Other events are also planned, including a study day entitled “Working with Organic Matter”, which will invite beginners and the more experienced to learn about the gestures, tools and techniques used for working with wood and organic matter of animal origin. A fascinating return to our roots!
Practical information: www.quaibranly.fr
From 11 to 15 October, the legendary Montmartre Grape Harvest Festival returns to the famous hill. For this, the 84th year, ion, Portugal is the guest of honour with its unique gastronomy and wines! Follow the Taste Trail to discover mountain wines, “vinho verde”, olive oil, charcuterie, “pasteis” and cheeses such as the famous Queijo da Serra and Chanfana. N.B. a Fado concert is planned for Thursday 12 October at the Trois Baudets with Alem Fado. And the Great Montmartre Grape Harvest Procession will be accompanied by the "Tuna Academica de Penafiel", from the north-west of the country, traditionally made up of students financing their studies through music.

Get ready to shiver with fright on 31 October … Halloween night will be an exciting one in the capital. One of the places to be is at the Vampires’ Ball at the Pavillon des Champs-Elysées. Disguised for the occasion, the bloodthirsty representatives of every court in Europe will be meeting at Dracula’s castle.

Lovers of the arts will be in heaven in Paris this October! One of the exhibitions not to miss is “Gauguin the alchemist”, the first major retrospective dedicated to the artist, from 11 October to 22 January at the Grand Palais. An opportunity to see this unique painter’s paintings, pottery, sculptures, wooden objects, etchings and drawings.
The Grand Palais has already been hosting a major retrospective dedicated to Irving Penn since 21 September. So why not kill two birds with one stone and go and admire the work of one of the greatest photographers of the 20th Century, in celebration of the centenary of his birth. The exhibition looks back over 70 years of Irving Penn’s career, with over 240 photos. Fashion, portraits, nudes, street scenes and images of the war in Europe are spread out along a chronological and theme-based circuit.
At the Vuitton Foundation, from 11 October to 5 March 2018, the famous New York MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) will be lending over 200 masterpieces related to the theme of “Being Modern”. Among the artists represented are Alexander Calder, Jasper Johns, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Frank Stella and Yvonne Rainer – little-known in French museums – and Marcel Duchamp, Paul Cézanne, René Magritte and Paul Signac.

Feel like getting off the beaten track? As part of France-Colombia Year, the “Théâtre de l'Athénée” opens its 2017-2018 season with a weekend dedicated to Colombian music. From 6 to 8 October, be carried away by the sound of “cumbia” or chamber music in a series of shows headed by the excellent “Balcon” musicians. Bookings: www.athenee-theatre.com
“Nuit Blanche” is back in Paris on Saturday 7 October. Among the many events planned, we’ve selected a few concerts with a difference due to take place all through the night at the “Philharmonie” and the “Cité de la Musique”. On the programme: “Nuit du Quatuor”, a minimalist night with James McVinnie, Lubomyr Melnyk and Bruce Brubaker playing Philip Glass, Terry Riley and John Cage from 8.30 pm to 6.00 am. And the night’s most unusual event is “Vacarme”, with nine hours of uninterrupted sound unison on the note A.
For the 10th anniversary of his first opus, “Gee Whiz But This Is A Lonesome Town”, Moriarty will be in concert at the Salle Pleyel, Paris, on 24 October. The group has taken advantage of this special occasion to embark on a major live album project for the first time, in “Echoes from the Borderline”, with 24 songs recorded on stage during its tours.

Paris gets its skates on! Whether you’re an experienced rider or a beginner, join us on 15 October for the first “Paris Roller Marathon”, which will start from the Eiffel Tower and follow a 42-km course. Skate past some of the capital’s finest monuments and locations: the Louvre, the Tuileries, the Moulin Rouge, the quays of the Seine, etc., and have a great time.
And to help you relax after your efforts… From 28 October to 1st November, don’t miss the mouth-watering “Salon du Chocolat” at the Versailles Exhibition Centre! The cherry on the cake this year is a focus on chocolatiers and patissiers. And because chocolate is an art, the producer countries will be offering an insight into the cocoa-growing regions and their cultural heritage. The International Cocoa Awards will be an opportunity to pay tribute to the work of the planters and the “grands crus”. You’ll enjoy the tasting workshops even more!

Have a great October, everyone!
