GALERIE LYMPIA IN NICE WELCOMES GIACOMETTI AND HIS LAST WORKS

Il n’est pas encore trop tard pour découvrir la nouvelle galerie d’art de Nice et les dernières oeuvres de Giacometti. It is not too late yet to discover Nice’s newest art gallery and Giacometti’s last works.

Nice is currently hosting its first ever exhibition dedicated to the works of Alberto Giacometti in the newly inaugurated Galerie Lympia.

The Square Grid

Consisting of a main building with roof terrace and clock tower, this intriguing space used to be a penal colony where prisoners from Villefranche were employed to dig the basins of the harbour, before being turned into a prison in the 19th-century. Since its renovation, it is now a full-blown arts centre, set to welcome major cultural events.

Organized in collaboration with the Giacometti Foundation, the current exhibition is showcasing some fifty major works from the Swiss artist’s final years (1960-1965), including sculptures, paintings, lithographs and drawings that highlight this decisive and relatively unknown period.

 

After abandoning surrealism and abstraction, Giacometti became famous for his figurative sculptures that resonated with the atmosphere of suffering that followed World War II. As he himself described his work he was not concerned with “depicting someone as we know them, but as we see them”.

Towards the end of his life, he also started to produce an extensive series of portraits, adding new models to his list of muses. This is how the Parisian prostitute, known as Caroline, and the photographer Eli Lotar came to replace the artist’s brother and wife, Diego and Annette, who modeled for most of his great postwar works.

While Giacometti did not travel much, he did come to Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat on numerous occasions and derived inspiration from the Côte d’Azur. It is now the French Riviera’s turn to pay tribute to an artist who drew its palm trees and seascapes with Giacometti: L’Œuvre ultime.

WILLIAM KLEIN – TOAST OF THE FRENCH RIVIERA THIS SUMMER

Les villes de Moscou, Tokyo et Nice sont les stars de la nouvelle exposition organisée cet été par le Musée de la Photographie Charles Nègre.  Moscow, Tokyo and Nice are the stars of the new exhibition organised this summer by the Musée de la Photographie Charles Nègre.

theatre-photographie-nice

For the public at large, he may not be as famous as the likes of Cartier-Bresson or Robert Capa, yet for his peers, photographer and filmmaker William Klein is nothing short of a living legend, having revolutionized the art of modern photography.

Now, the Niçois have a chance to admire the works of an artist who has been capturing the rough and tumble of daily life for more than 60 years, thanks to the exhibit, Bises de Nice, Moscou et Tokyo, that is currently being held at the Musée de la Photographie Charles Nègre until the 2nd of October.

Born in New York in 1928 to a Jewish family, Klein was introduced to Europe while doing his military service. After his demobilization, he stayed in Paris to take classes at La Sorbone and to study art with Fernand Léger. He started taking pictures of the people and street fashion around the French capital, using strong contrasts and blurred contours to produce brutally honest images that stood in direct contradiction to the aesthetical and technically perfect photographs of the times.

 

Strongly interested in social issues, this “anti-photographer” as he likes to call himself became famous in 1956 with the publication of his first book, “Life is Good and Good for You in New York: Trance Witness Revels which showed the Big Apple bas a booming and vibrant city, but also as a harsh and oppressive metropolis.

This was the beginning of a string of expressive portraits of cities. After Rome in 1958, he went to Moscow between 1959 and 1961 at the height of the Cold War, where he was able to go largely unnoticed to paint a picture of a lively, thriving Moscow at odds with the much greyer image the West liked to portray.

William Klein expo NiceThen it was Tokyo in the early 1960’s, where Klein managed to capture the great mutation of a city that was still teetering between tradition and modernity.

While most of his pictures are black and white prints, the artist also occasionally adds a touch of colour to celebrate life, as was the case when he photographed the Nice carnival in 1984, its centenary year.

But Klein is not just a photographer, he is also a filmmaker and the audience can watch his 2005 movie Messiah, which includes performances of Handel’s oratorio by a gay and lesbian gospel choir, as well as inmates of the Sugarland Prison in Texas, over images of contemporary life.

Throughout his career, William Klein has received many distinctions like the Prix Nadar (1957) and the rank of Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres de France (1991), but he remains first and foremost an unconventional artist who likes to take risks and experiment with lots of genres. As he once said: “Sometimes, I’d take shots without aiming to see what happened. I’d rush into crowds—bang!bang!…It must be close to what a fighter feels after jabbing and circling and getting hit, when suddenly there’s an opening, and bang! Right on the button. It’s a fantastic feeling.”

The exhibition, “William Klein: Bises de Nice, Moscou et Tokyo”, runs until 2nd of October, 2017 at the Théâtre de la Photographie et de l’Image, from 10am – 6pm daily (closed Mondays). Admission is free for residents of Nice.

5 OF THE BEST – ROOFTOP ESCAPES IN NICE

Les 5 meilleures bars sur les toits à Nice! The 5 best rooftops in Nice!

While you are hard at work or busy basking in the sun during the day, come sunset, there is definitely no better place to spend your evening than a nice rooftop terrace!

The rooftop season is most surely upon us, so why not treat yourself to some jaw-dropping views while sipping a cocktail, sharing a bite with friends and listening to some music.

To help you make up the most of your summer evenings in Nice, here is our pick of our 5 favourite rooftops in the city.

Hôtel Aston La Scala : the Best View in Town

Located just 5 minutes away from the beach and the promenade des Anglais, this four-star hotel is nothing short of an institution in Nice, which its amazing 360 degree panoramic view of the city, from the Colline du Château and its illuminated waterfall to the Old Town and Promenade du Paillon.

Its rooftop is open from June to September, allowing you to enjoy poolside cocktails during the warm summer days, while its swanky terrace bar is open all year round.

For a romantic evening at sunset or a lazy afternoon by the pool, this is definitely the place to be! And if you love music, you will enjoy the live music on Thursdays and the DJ nights on Saturdays.

For a similar experience, minus the pool, the nearby Boscolo hotel is also always a safe bet, thanks to its great atmosphere, its incredible views over the Jardins Albert Ier and the Baie des Anges, and its delicious tapas platters and cocktails.

With its Fitness Centre, sauna, solar-heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi and bar with panoramic views of the city, the 8th floor of the Splendid Hotel is a little paradise unto itself.

The Monsigny Hotel: The New Kid in Town

For the last few years, the Libération district has been getting trendier by the minute, so it is no surprise it now also has its own rooftop terrace that will give the most famous ones on the Promenade des Anglais a run for their money.

Located on the 7th floor of the hotel, the Monsigny rooftop is probably still one of Nice’s best-kept secrets. Overlooking the Malaussena pedestrian area and the roofs of the city, it offers everything you need to spend a perfect afternoon in the sun, or a relaxed evening with friends. The Jacuzzi is available to all (for just 5€ for hotel clients and 10€ for guests) and the deckchairs are welcoming. With unobtrusive music playing in the background, the selection of tapas and cocktails is as delicious as it is affordable.

Less touristy maybe, the Monsigny has nonetheless a more authentic feel that most of its counterparts.

BEN L’ONCLE SOUL BRINGS SINATRA TO NICE

Septembre à Nice promet d’être soul! September in Nice promises to be soul!

Often described as the French Amy Winehouse, soul sensation Ben l’Oncle Soul is back with a third album, ‘Under My Skin’, a tribute to the legendary crooner, Frank Sinatra.

under-my-skin-ben

Ben l’Oncle Soul will be in Nice this autumn for what should be a concert full of life! A great opportunity to see live an artist who has been making a big splash the world over in the last few years, with his eclectic brand of sound and his original look based on hats, bow ties and colourful jackets!

With a stage name that pays tribute to the fictitious elderly gent who serves as the brand image of Uncle Ben’s Rice, and music that is clearly influenced by American music of the 50’s and the 60’s, from the likes of Otis Redding and Ray Charles to Sam Cooke and Al Green, the young artist is as French as can be. Born Benjamin Duterde in 1984 in Tours in the Loire valley, he fell into soul music at a very young age, thanks to his mother who was immersed in that universe.

After graduating from art school, Ben, as he was then known to his friends, joined a gospel choir, the Fitiavana Gospel choir, which released an album in 2009 entitled ‘I Have a Dream’, featuring covers of soul classics such as ‘Killing me Softly‘.

Soon thereafter, the young man was signed by the French division of Motown Records and for his debut album, the eponymous Ben l’Oncle Soul, he chose to sing in both English and French. The album was a mix of original material and some covers, including his major hit, the soul version of the White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’,while his second offering, “A coup de rêves’, saw him team up with San Francisco-based psychedelic soul band Monophonics.

For his latest effort, which was released in late 2016, the French singer has reworked some of the greatest standards popularised by Ol’ Blue Eyes with a touch of reggae, soul, jazz and blues. With the help of both Matthieu Joly (Neïmo) and Benjamin ‘Waxx’ Heikimian (Naosol & The Waxx Blend) and thanks to his powerful voice, he has managed to give a new life to an extremely polished repertoire.

The thing which touched me most in Sinatra’s work, is the lyrics”, the soul artist says. “I wanted to give these jewels a new jewellery box, to create bridges between genres and periods.”

Ben l’Oncle Soul plays at the Théâtre Lino Ventura in Nice on Thursday, the 21st of September, 2017 at 8:30 pm. Tickets cost from €15,80 to €20,80 and can be bought at all the usual outlets or reserved online.

AUX DEUX CHEFS – TWO CHEFS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE

Le secret le mieux gardé de Nice? Nice’s best kept secret?

One chef by the oven in the kitchen, the other in the dining room looking after the customers. That’s the recipe for success adopted by Aux Deux Chefs.

aux 2 chefs_façade

A lovely neighbourhood restaurant, Aux Deux Chefs is located on rue Dabray, a stone’s throw from the Gare du Sud. But describing the place as just a spot for the locals would definitely be doing it a misjustice.

Making their own the saying of famous chef Paul Bocuse: “There is no good food if initially it is not done out of friendship for the person to whom it is intended”, the two young cooks at the helm of the restaurant, Jean-François and Vivian, both graduates from the Nice and Menton culinary schools, offer a gastronomic menu full of surprises, each more delightful than the last, in an atmosphere reminiscent of that of Lyon’s Bouchons.

The accent is put on seasonal and fresh products and if the dishes are all pretty traditional, they each come with a twist to excite even the more demanding palate.

Take, for instance, the Hamburger Nissart, made of beef, sun-dried tomatoes, black olives and pesto. Meanwhile, the fillet of duck breast is caramelized with honey and lavender, the cod loin is served with a rouille, a Provençal mayonnaise made of olive oil, and the sea bass is cooked with Parmesan cheese and pesto.

The prices are very reasonable, especially considering the quality of the cuisine. A “menu plaisir” that consists of an appetizer, an entrée, and a dessert costs just €25, while the dishes “à la carte” range from €13 to €22.

aux 2 chefs logo

The two chefs want you to have an unforgettable experience so they are always happy to answer your questions and adapt, if necessary, the dishes to suit your needs or desires.

With the Libération district getting trendier by the minute, don’t wait any longer to try this gem…we have a feeling that this will soon be the Place To Be!

JAIN AND THE AVENER TO HEADLINE NICE MUSIC LIVE FESTIVAL

Le Music Live Festival est de retour! The Music Live Festival is back!

Cancelled last summer in the wake of the tragic events that plunged the entire region into mourning, the Nice Music Live Festival is back this July.

Back with a vengeance and stronger than ever, the Nice Music Live Festival returns with an eclectic line-up featuring the best of French music from today and yesteryear. The festival, which successfully replaced the very popular Crazy Week back in 2015, will welcome The Insus?, Camille, the young Niçois, The Avener, and one of the musical sensations of the moment, Jain, all in a superb location, the Théâtre de Verdure / Place Masséna.

the-avener

The festivities will kick off on Saturday the 22nd of July on a rock’n’roll note, as three former members of the legendary French band Téléphone take to the stage. Highly popular in the 70’s and 80’s, The Insus?, as they are now called, have recently reunited after a hiatus of nearly 30 years and have been electrifying audiences with their energetic renditions of the band’s most famous hits such as New York avec toi, Cendrillon, and Un autre monde.

They will be followed on Monday by multi-cultural pop singer Jain who has been making a splash both at home and on the international scene over the past year with her unique blend of reggae, electro sounds and Arabic percussions.

jain

Influenced by the many places she called home while growing up, from Toulouse to Dubai, and from Congo to Madagascar, she won two Victoires de la Musique (the French equivalent to the Grammys®) earlier this year, for Best female Artist and Video of the Year for his first album “Zanaka”, which includes the hit singles “Come”and “Makeba”, a song dedicated to South African and civil rights activist Miriam Makeba.

The next evening, it will be time for some avant-garde music with Camille, a singer/songwriter who has been hailed as Björk’s natural successor, before The Avener closes the festival on Wednesday. After conquering the world at the end of 2013 with his rework of the Phoebe Kildeer song “Fade out Lines”, the local artist should bring the audience to their feet with his uplifting electronic sound.

The festival takes place from the 22nd to the 26th of July. Tickets cost from €33 to €60.50 and can be bought from all usual outlets or reserved online.

What better way to start celebrating music and life again!

MAMAC CELEBRATES GUSTAV METZGER, THE FATHER OF AUTO-DESTRUCTIVE ART

Dernier article en date pour Riviera Buzz. Latest article to date for Riviera Buzz.

The Musée d’art moderne et d’art contemporain in Nice (MAMAC), presents a retrospective of the work of Gustav Metzger, running until the 14th of May.

imageforweb-small

Gustav Metzger, best-known for his auto-destructive art and left-wing activism, was born in Nuremberg in 1926 to Polish-Jewish parents. For more than six decades, he has been using everyday materials like newspapers, cardboard, and paper bags to address issues close to his heart, such as extinction, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, terrorist bombings, climate change and environmental pollution.

The art, architecture and design world needs to take a stand against the ongoing erasure of species – even where there is little chance of ultimate success. It is our privilege and our duty to be at the forefront of the struggle. There is no choice but to follow the path of ethics into aesthetics. We live in societies suffocating in waste. Our task is to remind people of the richness and complexity in nature; to protect nature as far as we can and by doing so art will enter new territories that are inherently creative, that are primarily for the good of the universe.” – Gustav Metzger

Metzger’s work has been presented in solo exhibitions around the world, from The New Museum in New York (2011), to the Serpentine Gallery in London (2009), but calls for public participation are really what lies at the core of his artistic practice.

gustav-metzger-liquidation-of-warsaw-ghetto

In 1961, for instance, wearing a gas mask, Metzger performed one of the most famous acts of auto-destructive art when he threw hydrochloric acid at a sheet of nylon on London’s South Bank.

This is why, in parallel with MAMAC’s main exhibition, Remember Nature, the public were invited to witness the reenactment of two are Metzger’s main creations. Aside from the aforementioned South Bank demonstration which was recreated earlier this month, students from the École de Condé also recreated Mobbile, a sculpture placed inside a clear Plexiglas box, affixed to the roof of a car that was driven through the streets of Nice for a week at the end of January.

Remember Nature runs daily from 11am to 6pm until the 14th of May (closed Mondays).

FOR CÉLINE DION, IT’S BYE BYE VEGAS AND HELLO NICE!

Céline est de retour…et elle sera à Nice cet été. Céline is back….and she will be in nice this Summer!

Mark your calendars! Music superstar Céline Dion is taking a break from her long-running residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas to tour Europe this Summer.

celine-dion-encore-un-soir-cover

Great news for fans of Céline Dion, as she announces a six week European tour this summer, with a stop at the Allianz Riviera in Nice on the 20th of July.

According to the five-time Grammy winner herself, these new shows should be a real trip down memory lane, with plenty of smash hits from the artist’s 35-year career in music. Expect to hear favourites like The Power Of Love, All By Myself, Because You Loved Me, That’s The Way It Is, as well as of course the unforgettable love theme from Titanic, My Heart Will Go On.

She will also perform songs from her latest album, Encore Un Soir (Another Night) – her first in French in four years -, which has been certified Diamond with over 500,000 units sold in France, as well as some tracks from her upcoming and yet untitled record in English, that will include a track called Recovering, written by American singer-songwriter Pink.

At 48, the Canadian singer remains a force to be reckoned with on the music scene, despite the death of her longtime manager and husband, René Angélil, just a little over a year ago. Known for her powerful voice and heavily influenced by R&B, gospel, and classical genres, Celine Dion has sold more than 220 million albums worldwide since 1981. She is, after Madonna, the second-highest earning musician in history, and is showing no sign of slowing down. In a video posted to Instagram, she proudly proclaimed in both French and English, “I cannot wait to have a great time, so I hope you’re ready!”

ALL ABOUT PINAUD THIS YEAR IN MUSEUMS ACROSS THE REGION

Cette année offre la chance de découvrir le travail de l’artiste local Pascal Pinaud dans les musées de la région PACA. This year offers the chance to discover the work of local artist Pascal Pinaud in museums across the PACA region.

With no less than three exhibitions of his works taking place in the region, 2017 is definitely going to be the year of Pascal Pinaud.

pinaud-poster.jpg

The first two exhibitions are currently underway at the Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul de Vence, and at the Espace de l’Art Concret in Mouans-Sartoux, both running until the 5th of March. The third one will take place this summer at the Fonds Régional d’Art Contemporain (FRAC PACA) in Marseille. Recognition indeed for one of the major artists of the Côte d’Azur of our time!

Born in Toulouse in 1964, Pascal Pinaud has been living and working in Nice for over 20 years, proving that after Yves Klein, César, and Arman, the South East of France remains a prime location for creativity and research in arts.

Having exhibited from early on in his career, the graduate of the Villa Arson is known for reinventing abstract painting in a quest for new directions, replacing frames and brushstrokes with technical originality and humour. Through his paintings, sculptures, photographs and installations, he likes to blend the history of our creative and transformative capacities with the origins of art, as well as questioning the possible future of his creations. He also brings a certain poetry to his works and likes to make the spectators experience “a thousand lives”.

Pascal_Pinaud_mur_de_dessins_-_photo_Francois_Fernandez_-_©_Adagp_recadre.jpg

If his art bears some similarity to that of Gérard Gasiorowski, Bertrand Lavier, John Armleder, Noël Dolla, or with certain American painters from the 1980s such as Philip Taaffe or Jonathan Lasker, Pinaud has become one of the leading figures of post-modern painting. He has been granted solo exhibitions in numerous museums and art centres around the world, from the Museum Ludwig in Vienna and the Verrière Hermès in Brussels, to the Busan Biennal in South Korea and the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Santiago, Chile.

The retrospective exhibition at the Fondation Maeght “Sempervivum retraces his practice through several series such as Tôles and Diptyques, but also presents some unique works such as Arbre à fèves and Tel Quel,while “C’est à vous de voir…” at the Espace de l’Art Concret offers an instropective look at his already long career.

Depeche Mode arrive à Nice…Tous les détails dans Riviera Buzz. Depeche Mode is coming to Nice…All the details are in Riviera Buzz.

depeche-mode-annonce-son-retour-facebook

Some things never seem to go out of fashion and while decades may pass, Depeche Mode’s career is showing no signs of slowing down.

2017 is indeed going to be a busy year for Dave Gahan, Martin Gore, and Andy Fletcher, who are not only planning to release a new record in the spring, Spirit (their 14th studio album), but also to embark on an European tour from May to July to support said album.

Definitely great news for both lifelong fans and new aficionados on the French Riviera, who will have a chance to see the UK band live when they stop at the Stade Charles Ehrmann in Nice on the 12th of May.

While we can expect to hear such classic hits as “People Are People”,Master and Servant”,Enjoy the Silence”, and “Personal Jesus”, the synthpop heavyweights will also be playing songs from their new offering, which is being produced by James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco (Foal, Artic Monkeys) and reportedly features additional programming from techno star, Matrixxman.

It will be a follow-up to their 2013’s Delta Machine, which was produced by Ben Hillier, and to their upcoming Video Singles Collection, a career-spanning anthology of music videos and comments that is due next month. Not bad for a band that has been around since 1980!

1476169635-web-tour-announce-graphic

Famous for their dark, electro sound that propelled them to global success, Depeche Mode is still one of the most influential groups in the world today, having sold more than 100 million records over the years. They have even been hailed as “the most popular electronic band the world has ever known” by Q magazine, and as “one of the greatest British pop groups of all time” by the Sunday Telegraph.

With this exciting event, the upcoming musical season in Nice is definitely off to a great start!

Depeche Mode plays the Stade Charles Ehrmann in Nice on Friday, 12th of May 2017 at 7:45pm. Tickets go on sale on the 14th of October and range in price from 62 € to 89.50 € and can be purchased through all the usual outlets or booked online.
