ENCORE!

How do artists and writers see the world? We take you to the crossroads where culture meets the news and engages with what's happening in our lives today. From Monday to Friday at 12.15 pm Paris time.

Priceless Picasso sold for €100 in Paris

On this special all-Paris show: How's this for an early Christmas present bargain? A 25-year-old American is now the proud owner of an original Picasso sketch after winning it in a €100-per-ticket lottery. Find out what it was all in aid of, and what the artist’s grandson thinks about his grandfather's work being sold for relative pocket change.

Also on the programme: we check out Jumpin’ Jack Flash photography at a new exhibition of photos of the Rolling Stones’ 50-year career. We also meet the Paris-based American band CocoRosie.

Meanwhile, the city’s science museum invites us to get creative with our vocal cords at an exhibition that’s all about the voice; there are tutu-and-tights treats for disadvantaged teens at the Opéra Bastille; and we hang out on the banks of the river Seine with the Parisian artist who likes to paint the City of Lights after dark.
