Looking Back – October 2015

And off I go to Paris for the 2015 edition of FIAC and (Off)icielle. This edition was remarkable although the French galleries were widely outnumbered. The Lower East Side galleries were very well represented at Officielle at the Cite de la Mode et du Design.

I started the week with a private tour of the Warhol exhibition at the Musee d’Art Modern with its impressive final room that gather 107 of the artist’s Shadow paintings.

At the fair I was drawn to this work by Kader Attia at Lehman Maupin.

And who could not love this work by Ugo Rondinone.

Amongst the many events that week, there was the opening of the Philippe Halsman exhibition at the Musee du Jeu de Paume. The photographer developed a philosophy of jump photography, which he called jumpology. One of the famous jumper is Marilyn Monroe.


However, I loved the jump of the Duke and Duchess of Westminster. How does one look so proper in the air?

The sculptures dispatched in the Luxembourg gardens were also wonderful and the private tour led by Jennifer Flay the director of the fair was truly compelling. We met the star duo Bourellec, presenting their design (here around Jennifer Flay).

I was also happily surprised to see the windows of Berluti. They chose the artist Tobias Tovera who was first shown in Paris by Galerie E.G.P during the exhibition Be My Guest.

Back in New York, we took care of serious business. Our son is a big fan of the Ninja Turtle so that is how we spent Halloween:
