Le Cabaret bizarre d'Astrid Hadad Vivir Muriendo is currently at Musee du Quai Branly till the 21st December which means you have one more day...it is hysterical and magical wih Astrid addressing Mexican traditions. Astrid Hadad brings the spirit of Mexico to Paris, as part of the activities organized parallel to the exhibition Maya revelation of endless time. Since you are not allowed to film in the Musee du Quai Branly, I found this on line to give you an idea. The costumes are a riot.
Hi again... I thought I'd make a double post on McCarthy and Koons mixing each other's images to talk about the opposite sides of Pop Art that these artist represent, but finally I decided I wouldn't "pollute" the integrity of McCarthy with Koons' kitsch.
They're like Ying and Yang and not just apparently. Koons expo, as his work, is comforting but only superficially. There's something dark about his whole work while McCarthy's brutal honesty I find it pure.
I thought you'd might like to check out what Paul McCarthy's show in Paris looks like. We all know what happened to his Xmas tree at Place Vendome and actually the show partially rotates around the agression he suffered the sculpture and the artist himself: there are not only chocolate sculptures -created "in situ" by performers- that are storaged all over the different rooms, but also videos and posters where the artists obsessively writes about that incident.
I can't help wondering how the exhibition was profiled before the agression.
