ART BEAT: There’s no shortage of exhibitions during Paris Fashion Week. • L’Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton is showing “Chile, Behind the Scenes,” which explores how native Chilean artists have over time portrayed their political and cultural heritage through photos, paintings and video installations.

• The Jeu de Paume presents American photographer Lisette Model’s work, while on the other side of the river, there’s a large collection of French photographer Robert Doisneau’s pictures on display at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson.

• Le Pinacothèque’s “L’Anti-Cri” exhibition on Edward Munch shows the artist’s work beyond his famous “Scream.” Meanwhile, for the first time, Icelandic artist Erró’s disturbingly comical collages are at the Centre Pompidou.

• An exhibition on British painter J.M.W. Turner is featured at the Grand Palais. Another Brit, Damien Hirst, is among artists showing in the Musée Maillol’s “Vanities” exhibit on man’s obsession and fascination with death. It’s possible to see a wide range of last century’s art through three new shows at the Musée d’Art Moderne. There are the turn-of-the-20th-century realist portraits by Charley Toorop; Jan Dibbet’s landscapes from the Sixties and Seventies, and video art by 80-year-old Elaine Sturtevant.
