FIAC Jardin des Tuileries and Louis Vuitton Foundation

November 20, 2014

At the Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain (FIAC) the Tuileries Gardens were filled with site specific sculptures, creating compelling juxtapositions between the contemporary and the classical. Highlights include: New Age Demanded (Angel Racer Marble) by Jon Rafman; Alma by Christian Boltanski; and Many Small Cubes by architect Sou Fujimoto. Also taking place during FIAC week was the much anticipated opening of the Frank Gehry designed Louis Vuitton Foundation building in the Bois de Bologne. The 85 year old visionary has once again reinvented his architectural style with this graceful and streamlined design, a clear contrast to his two most famous buildings, Guggenheim Musuem Bilboa in Spain and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. Art installations include works by include Olafur EliassonEllsworth Kelly, and Cerith Wyn.
