Current Viewing: Paul McCarthy Chocolate Factory : Monnaie de Paris 11, Quai de Conti - Paris: Until Jan 4 2015

Plutôt incroyable et fascinante cette Chocolate Factory de McCarthy!Plutôt incroyable et fascinante cette Chocolate Factory de McCarthy!

A l’occasion de sa réouverture, la Monnaie de Paris présente Chocolate Factory, une exposition de Paul McCarthy qui s’installe dans les nouveaux espaces d’exposition rénovés de la Monnaie de Paris, marquant ainsi le début d’une nouvelle ère de la programmation d’art contemporain.
Figure majeure de la scène artistique internationale et une source d’inspiration pour de nombreux artistes, toutes générations confondues, Paul McCarthy insuffle l’énergie et la capacité de réinvention permanente propre à Los Angeles dans cette première exposition personnelle d’envergure dans une institution française. Créée pour la première fois il y a sept ans à New York, cette adaptation à Paris de Chocolate Factory reprend les bases de sa précédente installation, tout en utilisant le décalage contextuel, du décor white cube et austère de la galerie Maccarone à la flamboyante et baroque Salle Guillaume Dupré, pour transformer et faire évoluer le projet.

CURRENT VIEWING: In. Border. Deep : Pierre Huyghe : Hauser & Wirth (London)

The ‘Human Mask’ film is inspired by a real situation in Japan, in which a monkey has been trained to work as a waitress.The ‘Human Mask’ film is inspired by a real situation in Japan, in which a monkey has been trained to work as a waitress.

A monkey masked as a Japanese child, lilies stolen from Monet’s garden and a stone sculpture that’s warm to the touch are but a few of the unexpected elements at Pierre Huyghe sensational new London show at Hauser & Wirth. Building on the garden he created in a huge park in Kassel at the last Documenta, with its live, wandering dogs and an entire manipulated ecosystem, Huyghe's current expansion of his oeuvre positions him as one of the current masters of cultural spectacle. Scale it seems is the new battleground for art stardom. Yes we said that dirty word. Press release post-jump.

TI IS MAD FOR: Base Design's logo and visual language for the Foundation Louis Vuitton

"If the building is a sailboat, why not a vessel that will take you on new and exciting journeys?""If the building is a sailboat, why not a vessel that will take you on new and exciting journeys?"

Louis Vuitton’s chairman Bernard Arnault wanted to offer Paris an exceptional new space for contemporary art. So he asked Frank Gehry to design an emblematic building-vessel “symbolizing the cultural calling of France”. Base's task was to create a logo and visual language that embodied the vision of the project’s two grandmasters.

David Zwirner is pleased to present its first exhibition of Jason Rhoades’s work since Black Pussy in 2007. On view at 537 West 20th Street in New York, the show will be a reinstatement of the artist’s PeaRoeFoam project, which debuted at the gallery in 2002 (then located on Greene Street in SoHo) in the first of a trilogy of exhibitions that also brought it to Vienna and Liverpool the same year. A seminal work within Rhoades’s career, it has not been exhibited as a comprehensive presentation until now and many of the individual components are shown here for the first time since the original installations.
