30th edition of the Biennale Paris at the Grand Palais
From the 8th to the 16th of September 2018, the Grand Palais will host the 30th edition of the Biennale Paris (formerly Biennale des Antiquaires), an exceptional event for all art lovers and collectors. This year, French fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac will take artistic direction of the festival and bring his colourful and polymorphic touch. In addition to the 70 galleries on site, the Biennale Paris also offers an exhibition called “Napoléon, l’Empereur sous la verrière” (“Napoleon, the Emperor under the glass roof”). This retrospective presents a selection of Napoleon's iconic pieces from the private collection of Pierre-Jean Chalençon, his most ardent admirer. His outstanding Napoleonic collection, one of the most important in the world, includes not only the personal effects of the Emperor, but also those of his relatives. You can admire these remarkable pieces a few subway stations from the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni.
