Автор: 21.07.2019 | art
Françoise Barbe-Gall teaches how to talk to children about art. She gives practical advices in her books, teaches to see things invisible to many people, to notice details and forget about labels. But we have to admit there are very few people who can boast with expertise in this area. If you want to change this order of things, today we offer you to go with us to the museums.

Yes, it's a good idea, since we have chosen the best.

Centre Georges-Pompidou

Where? France, Rue Beaubourg, 75191 Paris cedex 04.

Who? Picasso, Miro, Chagall, Matisse and Kandinsky...

How much? A ticket for an adult costs EUR 13, children under 18 can visit for free. With a highly practical, the Paris Museum Pass, which costs EUR 49 for two days, the entrance, of course, if free.Photo artribune.com

Why? The public library with thousands of books, audio recordings and documentaries.

The observation deck for those who cannot get enough of Paris. Two cinema theatres for admirers of classics. Theatre Atelier Brancusi for you and workshop for your children. Here you can see contemporary art and plunge into it, to become part of it, or just relax with your family, take a walk or enjoy solitude in the company of a glass of red wine in Georges restaurant. But do not forget to continue the tour after it, we are here for the sake of art. The undeniable advantage of the Pompidou Centre is the presence of places where you can leave your children. For younger visitors there are art workshops, where kids will have lessons in painting and clay modelling.

Guggenheim Bilbao

Where? Spain, situated on the banks of the Nervión River.

Who? Serra, Bourgeois, Koons ...

How much? For adults - EUR 16, Students (less then 26 years) and Seniors (65 years +) - EUR 9, for groups more than 20 people - EUR 14, Children under 12 and Members - free.bilbao-guggenheim-day.jpgPhoto independent.co.uk

Why? This museum was filmed in the James Bond movie and is located on the bank of the river, how can you resist to come here? But seriously, there is everything from Chinese culture to art exhibitions in Russia. It houses everything that is interesting to fans of avant-garde and abstraction. Here you can see The Matter of Time (a series of exhibition of sculptures dedicated to the art of the twentieth century), a huge spider by Louise Bourgeois, a puppy in front of a museum by Jeff Koons (terrier of 13 meters, decorated with flowers, one of the main attractions of Bilbao). It is worthy to pay attention to the very building of the museum, a deconstructivism style brainchild of American-Canadian architect Frank Gehry. It is compared to a bird, an airplane, a superman, an artichoke and a rose to blossom.

Castello di Rivoli

Where? Italy, Turin Province, Piazzale Mafalda di Savoia

Who? Anselm Kiefer, Nan Goldin and Tracey Emin.

How much? Unique regular admission is EUR 6.50, reductions for children aged 11-14, senior citizens, teachers, students, military personnel, cultural associations and other organizations, Pyou Card holders.fffffffffffffff.jpgPhoto leadinglight.files.wordpress.com

Why? Here, guests are offered to look at the Arte Povera, or so-called "poor art", Italian artists of twentieth century are famous for. They use material which is, as a rule, short-lived: paper, rags, trash, plastic... Surprisingly, it was a good idea to combine art works with severity of castle architecture, it attracts thousands of tourists every year.01_METAMORPHOSES-Photo-by-Renato-Ghiazza.jpgPhoto castellodirivoli.org

There is, perhaps, too much beauty in this world. We believe that though it is hardly possible to see everything, but the effort is worthwhile. And we will help!
