Versailles and Venet

Posted: June 4, 2011 in Uncategorized

This year’s guest artist at the Palace de Versailles is French painter and sculptor Bernar Venet. His monumental sculptures will be adorning the gardens and framing the palace.

After a very popular year with the art of Japanese super star Takashi Murakami, the museum veers in more concrete and less whimsical direction. Venet’s avant-garde sensibilities in his paintings, installations, performance, gigantic sculptures and even writing have made a lasting mark on the contemporary aesthetic landscape. The exhibition is on view from June 1st through November 1st, 2011.
