When notebooks come alive and figures dance across the screens, and a political statement is made. South African artist William Kentridge 'Towards a Model Opera' in the new exhibition #ArtAfrique at @fondationlv. #emptyFLV #fondationlouisvuitton

Today the new ART/AFRIQUE exhibition opens at @fondationlv. Yesterday I got to get a sneak peek before the press for #emptyFLV. Heads up: go soon if you want to see the #DanielBuren colored installation that starts coming down May 2nd! Also, if you haven't visited the Jardin d'Acclimation, be sure to take the back exit as it's fun to explore (ended up riding the 🚂 when my parents were in town!!). #paris75016 #fondationlouisvuitton #frankgehry

Wishing I was back in Dublin for lunch and a latte at @meetmeinthemorning (both were SO good). Thanks for the rec, @fink_ ! #PAVdublin #PAVireland

I have a whole new appreciation of research after this weekend's workshop with @annieatkins. We learned how to read scripts, think about storytelling visually, to cheat calligraphy, and even made a passport. I'm going to Secret Cinema in a couple months and looking forward to putting my new skills to use and design my own props!... Also, loved meeting my classmates from Ireland, the U.K., Italy, U.S. and Dubai! #annieatkins #Dublin #PAVdublin #PAVireland

This is seriously what I was doing yesterday when I cast my 1st vote in a French election (procuration: send a friend to vote for you, and my friend texted when we were working on calligraphy). I had to laugh because while in Dublin I encountered so many French people; turns out @annieatkins' studio is next door to the French Embassy and when you're an expat you can vote there (so much of the French system makes sense, even voting on a Sunday!). Despite being slightly distracted by politics, my head is still spinning from excitement and inspiration after Annie's Graphic Design for Filmmaking workshop! 🖋 #Dublin #annieatkins #PAVdublin #PAVireland

Popped over to #Dublin for a Graphic Design for Filmmaking workshop with @annieatkins who was the graphic designer on Grand Budapest Hotel! 🎥🔮It's great fun getting insights into the film industry, making things by hand, and meeting cool classmates from around the world. Shared a couple peeks on Stories. Can't wait for day 2! #PAVireland #PAVdublin #annieatkins

When your dad loves trains and your mom loves gardens, @larecyclerie is the perfect mix of the two. The refurbished train station was restored with salvaged goods and celebrates repair and minimal waste. They even have their own urban garden (and chickens) and offer classes. We went for a weekend brunch; it's also very convenient if you're headed to les puces (the flea market). #paris75018 #larecyclerie

Part of the magic of living in France is that a 3 hour train ride from Paris can get you here! Rapid fast day trip with my parents this week to visit dear old French friends (friends since before I was born!) who moved to #Dinard. The air was so fresh and clean, and the houses are adorable. I wish I could just ride a train somewhere every week - I was so productive! 🚂

Celebrated the launch of @lostncheeseland's beautiful new book #TheNewParis (@abramsbooks) last night at @sezane. Fun fact: I learned about the amazing Sezane Appartement thanks to Lindsey's article in the NYTimes - the French brand is online only but you can visit "l'appartement" to try things on and place order on iPads. It's just one of the exciting and forward focused French brands featured in the book, which gives you a fresh look at Paris, beyond clichés. The other fun twist to last night is I met so many people I only had known through their social media accounts. Such a treat to all be together to celebrate such a wonderful project! Bravo, Lindsey! 👏p.s. She'll be traveling to the U.S. soon for her book tour! #paris75002
