A couple of Saturdays ago was the excellent Nuit des Musées, a European-wide festival where museums stay open late and host special events for the occasion. The night was a real success, with over two million people visiting the participating museums in France. We went on a mission in Paris, starting off at the fashion and design museum Les Docks for a concert in hommage to Balenciaga and a look around the Balenciaga exhibit, then on to Musée Rodin to check out the quirky video installation in the beautiful gardens, and finishing up with a visit to Daniel Buren's exhibition at Le Grand Palais (a venue which welcomed over 16000 cultured nighthawks over the course of the evening).
