It's the setting, right? It brings to mind the Spring/Summer 2014 Chanel "Art Show" despite itself. Except the demographic viewing this spectacle is apt to buy companies, not just quilted bags.

Whoah! Palais de Tokyo does it again, Not only in terms of convening another knock-out and suitably enough, drop dead curatorial exercise, but also in terms of the stunning cultural self-awareness embedded in the idea of this exhibit. For the premier contemporary art space in Paris to structure an exhibition around the concept of the "cemetery" is beyond ironic and actually a form of cultural criticism of the best order. Paris as a Necropolis... The museum as the repository of a decaying past...art as a cultural funerary rite! That's so dense and rich a self-critque especially because the thought-system is delivered via a bricolage of unexpected artists ranging from Rodin to Ian Hamilton Finley to Duane Michals. This exhibition goes down as one of the best of the year in TI's books.
