  • Exposition Universelle 1889: Rue du Caire & les Almees. Author: Serpentine Video.  Publisher: YouTube, 2007.  Physical description: YouTube video, 7:27 (length).  Unique identifier: .  Abstract:  L'Exposition Universelle, the French World's Fair, commemorated the Centennial of the French Revolution. The Eiffel Tower, Edison's Electricity Pavillion and "La Rue du Caire" drew millions of visitors to "The City of Lights" during the 6 months it was open. Those lights allowed people to visit after dark and the scandalous "danse du ventre" by the "almees" was particularly enticing.  This film was created in 2003 for the National Museum for Women in the Arts in Washington DC, for an exhibit about the women impressionist, Berthe Morisot, whose work was shown at the Fair.
