The venerable British museum is to host an exhibition devoted to one of literature's best-loved characters, Alice, the heroine of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland." On the program will be an exploration of the "origins, adaptations and reinventions over 157 years" of the 1865 novel that made her a global phenomenon.

"The Arc de Triomphe, wrapped" from September 19 to October 4, 2020, in Paris

For 16 days, one of France's most famous monuments, the Arc de Triomphe, will be wrapped with 25,000 square meters of fabric and 7,000 meters of red rope. The massive artwork by the 'King of Wrap,' Christo, will follow an exhibition in the city's Center Georges Pompidou from March 18 to June 15, 2020, which will document Christo and Jeanne-Claude's time in Paris from 1958 to 1964.
