What on earth are we telling you about a supermarket? Well, Monoprix is not just any old supermarket; the fact that they are the only ones to have a supermarket on the Champs Elysées should tell you something for a start.
Although you wouldn't know it (because the food hall is hidden in the basement) Monoprix could be the clever option if you want to eat something quick and healthy at lunchtime. Their refined selection of prepared sandwiches, tarts and snack food is a cut above the rest, has several vegetarian options and makes an effort to be healthy too.
Also, if you get past the lunch section, you'll see that they have a wide selection of traditional French produce that would make great presents for taking back home with you. Plus, there's a range of imported goods if you're craving your favourite biscuits from back home.
They also have a smaller store (food only) just down the road at 122 Rue de la Boétie. Check them out!
Collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York
Rejoice, Warhol and Lichtenstein's fans! Here's your opportunity to appreciate the work of these and other classic American pop artists.
The renowned Musee Maillol of Paris, France, is displaying the "Pop Art - Icons That Matter" exhibit in a showcase that takes place from now until January 21st, 2018.
These pieces will highlight the wit, whimsy, and cultural revolutions of the U.S. during the 60's and 70's, which makes it a prime opportunity for visitors to engage with the culture and values of both of these pivotal decades, with the focus on American consumerism.
Indeed, there was a sharp difference the budding trend of abstract expressionism and the "pop" art style -- an approach that offered a unique perspective on everyday American objects and concepts.
Although this collection of classics from respected artists of both decades is both dazzling and bold, bear in mind that irony and sarcasm are ultimately the driving force behind these famous pieces.
