First Look at Ólafur Elíasson's Inaugural Exhibition at the Louis Vuitton Foundation  
12/18/14 Posted 12/18/14

We're huge Ólafur Eliasson fans at ArtSlant. His sensitivity to site-specificity and deft hand at magical transformation through the merging of science and art is unique to say the least. Eliasson was tapped by the Louis Vuitton Foundation and their curatorial team lead by Suzanne Pagé to inaugurate Paris' newest museum designed by starchitect, Frank Gehry. Eliasson's installation Inside the Horizon—a series of mirrored, yellow columns—will also be permanently fe... [more]

Marie Denis at Galerie Alberta Pane 4/4/13 Posted 4/4/13

For "Lucy", her third solo show at Alberta Pane Gallery, Marie Denis has chosen to present new large format sculptures. But who is Lucy? Our ancestor, of course, that Australopithecus afarensis, the first woman, the first lady... On this occasion the gallery will turn into a place of birth, of origins, of a beginning. It is also a metaphor for an impossible acquaintance, for the difficulty - impossibility even? - to transfer any knowledge of reality. A reality transformed into knowledge, on whi... [more]
