The private gallery of the Rosenbloom Collection.

The annual three-day event Paris Face Cachée (Jan. 31-Feb. 2) opens the doors to 90 unusual places and activities in Paris and environs that are not normally accessible to the public. Space is limited, and tickets go very fast, so make sure you go online on Fri., Jan. 12, or Wed., Jan. 22, to book your “experience.” The idea is that you don’t know exactly what you will see or where (the address will be on the ticket you receive), but you will be given a general description and warned of age limits or other constraints. Today the press was shown one venue: a private art gallery concealed behind a big black garage door in an unprepossessing modern apartment building. Inside is an exhibition staged by the Rosenblum Collection of contemporary art, including Matthew Day Jackson’s impressive installation inside a real American bomb shelter. Heidi Ellison
