Just in case you get tired of the sun playing hide-and-seek in the sky, here is our selection of exhibitions we loved the most this month in Paris.

Musée de la Chasse et de la nature’s new exhibition Unleashed is the result of a long distance artistic collaboration between internationally renowned photographer Roger Ballen based in South Africa and sculptor-illustrator Hans Lemmen based in Netherlands. The two artists reinterpret and reconstruct each other’s work, in a manner similar to the surrealist cadavre exquis practice, with Ballen exploring the subconscious animalist tendencies in us, and Lemmen’s reminiscing of the primitive times when humans and animals lived in harmony. Details

2. “The French Spirit: Countercultures 1969-1989” at La Maison Rouge – until May 21, 2017
