I bought a pair of flat shoes and my feet are still killing me, paris
We jumped on the Metro over to the Pompidou. Wasn't loving the exhibit of the moment so we stuck with the always well curated permanent exhibit. The escalator up to the main exhibits is just one of the most interesting and I can't help but always take a picture here.
This piece is from Joan Mitchell, one of my favorites.
This particular piece is all about sound. The round mirrors move and create noise as you walk towards them. Interactive and very cool. The artist is Cerith Wyn Evans and it is called the Throbbing Gristle.
Upstairs there is currently an exhibit called collections of modern art. Unbelievably well curated almost overwhelming to see so much fantastic art by the best artists of their time on one floor. Early Picasso
Henri Matisse ( and an early room chocked with his paintings )
We were exhausted and went to George to have lunch. George is located at the top of the Pompidou one of the restaurants owned by the Costes Brothers around town. These restaurants came on to the scene in the mid-90's, I believe. It is time for a reason redo. The place not only feels old, the food is far from how good it was originally and the service is terrible. Honestly would only return on a beautiful day for the views and location to have a glass of wine. Above is the crab salad, terrible tasting.
Next stop was Palais Royal where some of the stores we wanted to go are in that area. This particular part of town is going under massive construction. The park in the middle is always beautiful. We walked back to Colette to pick up a few t-shirts and home for a rest before dinner.
