MAMbo! MAMbo! It’s such a cute name! We went to MAMbo, Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna. There was American artist, Nick Van Woert exhibition. It presents Van Nick’s 33 works. It was very first time to see his works. So as soon as I saw his works, I thought this was exhibition from many artists. Because it presents a variety of his works. I was so ridiculous!
There is Italian painter, Giorgio Morandi Museum in MAMbo. He is famous for still life. They have his significant works. It’s good to visit there. It’s not allowed to take a picture. So I have nothing to show you.
Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain is 30 years old! Cartier inaugurated the Fondation Cartier near Versailles 30 years ago. Ten years later, the Fondation Cartier moved to glass and steel building by Jean Nouvel in Paris. Many artists were exhibited in this awesome space for 30 years. The Fondation Cartier celebrates its 30th anniversary with the exhibition Vivid Memories, accompanied by concerts, events and some of the most symbolic works of the Fondation Cartier collections. There were some works I already saw from the past exhibitions.
I liked paper lights by Issey Miyake in the garden. They were moving like accordions. So cute!
Italian painter and sculptor, Lucio Fontana at Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris! I could see many his works never known before. I knew only one series of his works(get canvas torn). 😀 So it was good to learn of a wide range of his works. Last video one is my favorite. I couldn’t recognize the narrow entrance if a keeper didn’t tell me about it. Along the maze, you can reach the Fontana’s major work. Wow!
My parents came to Paris, too. We rent a cute Fiat to go to suburb of Paris. At first, we went to Chateau de Versailles to see Korean artist, Lee Ufan exhibition in beautiful Versailles Garden. For the past several years, the palace invited contemporary artists to exhibit works in the garden. Ten works by Lee Ufan were installed in the garden. “L’ombre des etoiles” was my favorite piece. Shining white stones on the floor were awesome. His modern installations are in harmony with garden. If you have a plan to go there, take a map to see every works! Because it’s difficult to find them in this huge garden and some works are hidden.
I went to Japanese artist, Kusama Yayoi exhibition at Hangaram Gallery. She is famous for dot repetition. She collaborated on a collection with Louis Vuitton in 2012. Most of her works is in psychedelic colors, repetition and pattern. It was fun to participate in her installation with four different dot stickers.
Korean sunglasses brand Gentle Monster shop just opened! Black submarine in the shop… automatic mirror door(looks like a wall)… The exterior and interior design are very unique. I tried every sunglasses to find good one for me.
I went to Hiroshi Sugimoto’s exhibition at Leeum. I could see a wide range of his art from the late 1970s to the present. It was fun to experience his long exposure idea in front of his famous theater.
