When I was in France last week, I visited the
Its beautiful architecture is by Jean Nouvel
(you can see here, here, here and there) and it has
a museum, a library, an auditorium and a restaurant.

I went to see Le corps découvert, an exhibition of 200 modern and contemporary art works by 70 (Arabic) artists with a common theme, the representation of the body and the nude in the Arab visual art world.

Here are my picks.

This is my favourite painting, such a powerful image.
