Article a propos du nouveau directeur de DIA : un francais appele Philippe Vergne




La Dia-ttitude de Philippe Vergne
Consultez l'article de FRENCH MORNING NEWS , interview de Philippe Vergne....


Speaking of Outdoor Art .....What's happening in Versailles?


and maybe in this short presentation (source) is the answer to WHY Jeff Koons in VERSAILLES (Very Personnal Comment from the redaction!!)

"
The world’s most expensive artist will show works in one of the world’s most lavish exhibition spaces next year, Agence France-Press reports. In his first major French museum show, Jeff Koons will exhibit 12 to 15 of his large-scale works at the Palace of Versailles, Marie Antoinette’s legendary former palace outside Paris.


Works on display might include those owned by the French billionaire Francois Pinault, who heads his own contemporary art museum, the Palazzo Grassi, in Venice. The Palazzo Grassi and Versailles are connected in that Versailles president Jean-Jacques Aillagon is the former manager of Pinault’s museum.

The exhibition is slated for September 26 through December 14, 2008, and the show is an extension of the palace’s "Versailles Off" program that puts temporary contemporary art exhibitions on the Versailles grounds. "Our job is not to do what modern art museums or the Tate Gallery do,’’ Aillagon said. "What is interesting is to explore the resonance between artists’ works and Versailles, and invite the visitor to look at the palace differently."

Cities of Peace

highly recommended...It was a treat to be able to listen to the artist at the opening.
I had my eyes on this artist since my friend told me about a show I should go and see: Ellen Frank showed at Concordia College Bronxville At that time, I didn't take the time to go and see the exhibit
.And I happen to like very much this current gallery TRIA where you're really welcome ( not a quality for most of those Chelsea Galleries where no one is even saying hello behind those high counters,......) well, Personal taste and experiences,.......
