An evening at the museum: American evening

Saturday 21 January, from 6.30pm to 10.30pm

Step back in time to 1930s America and meet the painters, writers, musicians and actors of the era. In collaboration with the Ecole du Louvre.

In a privileged setting outside of the public opening times, this evening is aimed at 18-30 year olds, whether students or otherwise, who will be met by mediators - art history students - on hand to talk about the works on display and answer any questions.

Programme for the evening
6.30pm-9.30pm non-stop:
- Presentation of the exhibition by students from the École du Louvre,
- An "American Dream" workshop, where everyone can don a pair of clogs and metal glasses, not forgetting the garden fork and apron, and pose for a photo in a Grant Wood remake-style to create their own American Gothic where austerity is not mandatory!

- 7pm: screenings of extracts from newsreels from the era,
- 7.30pm: screening of the documentary The Blank Canvas by Edward Hopper (2012), in the presence of the director Jean-Pierre Devillers,
- 8.30pm: screening of films produced by Hollywood studios RKO (montage proposed by Lobster Films),
- 10pm: jazz concert (Duke Ellington, Bubber Miley, Art Hickman and more), interpreted by Benjamin Dousteyssier (saxophone), Julien Pontvianne (saxophone) Florent Nisse (double bass).
