The Fondation Beyeler presents, until 02 September, the first exhibition dedicated to Jeff Koons who needs no introduction. It is curated by Theodora Vischer.
The show focuses on three central series of works – The New, Banality and Celebration – which represent crucial stages in Koons’s development and lead to the nucleus of his thinking and creative activity. The New comprises the ready-made-like cleaning appliances of his early period, symbols of newness and purity. Banality includes those traditionally crafted sculptures in porcelain and wood which have since become (post-)modern icons. Finally, in the Celebration series, on which Koons has been working for almost twenty years, appear high-gloss steel sculptures of unique material perfection, and large-format paintings in which the artist celebrates childhood in a veritably baroque way. Koons’s equally spectacular and subtle works are repeatedly concerned with themes such as innocence, beauty, sexuality and happiness. These reflect his conception of an art that is accessible to every viewer.

Barry X Ball is an amazing artist

Artist Jeremy Deller selected to represent Great Britain at 2013 Venice Biennale



I was recently reporting on the interesting and fun artwork of Jeremy Deller at the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Arts (http://tinyurl.com/6tsxuoy ) and guess what? He's so good that he's been selected to represent Great Britain at the 55th Venice Biennale which will take place next year.

He will present a solo exhibition in the British Pavilion, which will run from June to November 2013. Born in London in 1966, Deller is an artist of a different stripe from most of his contemporaries. Often working in collaboration with others (among them artists, makers, musicians and other members of the public), he brings together elements from traditional and contemporary culture to create new types of work: films, installations, performances and events which are often humorous, but which don't seek to satirise the people or subjects involved. His works display an engagement with all sorts of communities that exist in today's society, and whose interests are brought to our attention by Deller with wit and clarity. 


Well done !

Monumenta 12: Daniel Buren





Daniel Buren, « Excentrique(s), travail in situ », Monumenta 2012


"C'est un signe fort que d'aller voir Buren plutôt que d'aller inaugurer la dernière succursale de la BNP", s'enthousiasme Jean-Michel Ribes, directeur du Théâtre du Rond-Point au sujet de la visite de F. Hollande à Monumenta 2012.
