Today, during my lunch break, I went to see Villa Vassilieff in Montparnasse. This art center, opened last February, is located in the cuttest green and peacefull alley. Villa Vassilieff used to be the workshop of Marie Vassilieff, a Russian artist who created an art academy there. Nowadays, Villa Vassilieff is like a little Villa Medicis. Worldwide artists and art researchers are invited to stay there for three months, in order to share their experience and views, about the current and past history of Montparnasse. Temporary exhibitions are also presented in this lovely place where it's possible to enjoy a nice cup of coffee or tea.
21 avenue du Maine – 75015 Paris - Tuesday to Saturday, 11am to 7pm.
