Brooklyn Falls for France

This fall, an array of cultural events by Francophone artists across Brooklyn testifies to the continued creative exchange between France and the US.

From September 14, 2019, to February 1, 2020, nearly 20 Brooklyn-based cultural institutions have chosen to present projects by authors, artists, choreographers, curators, directors, and publishers from the French-speaking diaspora. Many of these events are free, several are U.S. premieres, they all are unique experiences.

To shed light on this outstanding season, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and FACE Foundation have grouped these events into a single program. The Brooklyn Falls for France Cultural Season offers a rare opportunity to experience a slice of contemporary Francophone culture across New York City’s largest borough, from street performances and virtual reality presentations to large scale theatrical projects and retrospectives.

This fall, the Brooklyn Falls for France Cultural Season features several visual arts exhibitions:

Pierre Cardin: Future Fashion, until Jan 5, 2020. A retrospective of couturier Pierre Cardin, featuring over 170 objects from the 1950s to the present, traces the legendary career of one of the fashion world’s most innovative designers.
