With a background in diverse media—including sculpture, video, photography, writing and interactive pieces—French artist Alexandra Loewe presents her new pictorial work Alexandria & Pergamon at Maison Martin Margiela, 13 rue de Grenelle, as part of the Parcours Saint Germain de Près.
I’m happy to share with you the opening of Alberto García-Alix’s exhibition at the MEP in Paris.
I must admit that I’m not objective while writing about Alberto and his work. The admiration for both -which is actually one whole entity- comes from respecting him as one of the most sincere and generous persons I’ve ever encountered.
I remember a remark a very superficial minded young lady made to me the other day: ‘I think a long black dress and a long black veil looks so nice.’ Poor creature let her think on. She wore mourning once for her father. - Nannie Haskins Willams, 1863
I discovered a few new things by attending the 3D Printshow at the Carrousel du Louvre this last Saturday, October 18th.
The event displayed how the latest advancements and innovations in this technology can change the way many industries operate—creating intricate products at a much larger scale than it was possible before, personalising them and eliminating many distribution problems.
It is fortunate that Pierre-Henri and Marie Chauveau allowed their beautiful home on Boulevard Saint-Martin, in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris, to be the setting for the second edition of Private Choice—an ephemeral exhibition of contemporary art and design organized by Nadia Candet.
I'm happy to share with you a visit to the Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul-de Vence, France.
The Maeght Foundation is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The rationalist building, by spaniard architect Josep Lluís Sert -also responsible for the Joan Miro Foundation or the american embassy in Bagdag-, didn't age badly but I wouldn't say that it gained with time.
One of the main goals of the Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles is to promote and support the cultures of all French-speaking nations. This last Friday, October 17, I had a very pleasant evening at their “Quatre Stylistes Sénégalais” fashion show in Boulevard Saint-Germain, which was part of the Festival Francophonie Métissée. I find it reassuring to see such platforms exist and find support, for it is important to keep our eyes open for talent and creativity in all directions and for national identities to reaffirm themselves.
I got a kick out of seeing this again. It was a video that I did with Disciple Films celebrating Gwand and its winners over a decade. The following year I was the President and the winner was Haider Ackermann. You will also see the very early collection of Guillaume Henry.
In celebration of the FIAC and its Gallery Night, VSP inaugurates a new space, the VSP ART LOUNGE, dedicated to art within their brand new flagship store. The chosen artist for the first exhibition in the new space is Nil Yalter.
