More than ever before, Paris was seen throughout the world as a sparkling city of luxury with a sophisticated way of life. More than 250 works—paintings, decorative art, costumes and fashion accessories, posters, photographs, and sculptures, mainly kept by the Paris city museums—will immerse visitors in the atmosphere of Belle Époque Paris. They will be presented in six groupings: Paris, Showcase of the World; Art Nouveau; Paris, Capital of the Arts; The Parisian Woman; Traversing Paris; and Paris by Night. The Frist Art Museum is one of three venues in the United States to present this iteration of an exhibition that was on view at the Petit Palais in 2014.\n\nExhibition organized by the Petit Palais Museum of Fine Arts, with exceptional loans from the Musée Carnavalet – History of Paris and the Palais Galliera Museum of Fashion, Paris Musées\n\n\nDo Ho Suh: Specimens\nGordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery\n\nDo Ho Suh creates astonishingly detailed and lyrical sculptural installations that alter perceptions of built environments and how the body relates to space. The centerpiece of this exhibition will be his Specimen series, which explores details of Suh’s domestic existence such as light switches, door handles, electric panels and appliances taken from his living spaces and recreated in fabric. By isolating these objects, Suh invites the viewer to reflect on their everyday interaction with the seemingly mundane.\n\nOrganized by the Frist Art Museum\n\n\n2018 Young Tennessee Artists: Selections from Advanced Studio Art Programs\nConte Community Arts Gallery\nFree\n\nFor our biennial Young Tennessee Artists exhibition, works by twenty-seven student artists were selected from advanced studio programs by a panel of local professionals from across the state.\n\nOrganized by the Frist Art Museum\n\n\nImage Building: How Photography Transforms Architecture\nUpper-Level Galleries\n\nImage Building examines the complex and dynamic interactions among spectators, images, buildings, and time through the lens of architectural photography in America and Europe from the 1930s to the present. Organized by guest curator Therese Lichtenstein, Image Building surveys the ways in which artists explore the relationship between architecture and identity, featuring work by contemporary photographers Iwan Baan, Lewis Baltz, Andreas Gursky, Candida Höfer, Thomas Ruff, Stephen Shore, and Hiroshi Sugimoto, and earlier modernist architectural photographers like Berenice Abbott, Samuel Gottscho, Julius Shulman, and Ezra Stoller. The works of these influential photographers transformed how we view architecture.\n\nOrganized by the Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill, New York\n\n \n\n\n \n\n\n \n DTSTART;TZID=America/Chicago:20181026T180000 DTEND;TZID=America/Chicago:20181026T210000 END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
