Fran├žois Pinault Delays Opening of Paris Museum Until 2021

ART ON HOLD: Billionaire François Pinault has decided to push back the opening of his Bourse de Commerce art museum until spring 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The historical building, renovated by renowned Japanese architect Tadao Ando, was originally due to be unveiled in June after several years of renovations. It was completed on March 9 and workers were busy putting the final touches to the venue when France entered its lockdown on March 17.
“Following the announcement of the continuation of the confinement linked to the health crisis and given the uncertainty over when activity can resume, the work necessary for the completion of the Bourse de Commerce cannot be carried out according to the planned schedule,” the Fondation Pinault said in a statement on Friday.
The City of Paris was in the process of completing construction work outside the building. Initially expected to last three months, this phase will now take an estimated eight or nine months due to the social distancing rules that are likely to remain in place once the lockdown is lifted, the institution explained.

Josie Natori Offers Piano Concerts on Instagram, Talks Loungewear Trends and the Need for Optimism

ON A HIGH NOTE: Music is a welcome escape for many self-quarantined people, so Josie Natori has taken to Instagram Live to share her piano playing.
While Andrea Bocelli’s YouTube concert on Easter at the Duomo in Milan reeled in millions of real-time viewers, Natori takes a more intimate approach. Thursday night’s concert was the third consecutive week the designer has performed on Instagram. “At first, I felt very strange just playing there. It was not very professional. It was my housekeeper with my iPhone. But I have a very good person that was communicating good instructions…I am the least tech-y person. Instagram Stories wasn’t something that I was really engrained with.”
Natori’s son Kenneth Jr., who works at the company, suggested she perform on Instagram. The first two concerts were on the company’s Instagram and this week’s was on her personal Instagram. More than anything the concerts are a way to connect with friends, some of whom have attended her dinner parties in New York and Paris that end with her playing a few songs on the piano.
