Artsy Hour en couleurs

 

Artsy hour is the new night event at the Fondation : one Friday a month Frank Ghery’s glass ship welcomes visual, auditory and taste experiences.

 

Friday May 13th, Artsy Hour channels ‘Observatory of Light’, an in situ and ephemeral installation by Daniel Buren at the Fondation.

 

The program for this colourful evening inspired by Buren:

 

- DJ Set: Planet Claire (Clek Clek Boom)

Planet Claire’s musical selection Colors elicits the visual atmosphere of the Fondation created by Daniel Buren and its reflections, changing from a pale softness to an acute saturation according to the sun’s position in the sky and the light’s intensity. A chromatic and auditory crescendo in sight, with a participatory surprise to finish.

 

Exhibitions : intervention in situ by Daniel Buren, ‘Observatory of Light’ and ‘Chinese Artists at the Fondation Louis Vuitton’

Discover the exhibitions and the intervention thanks to knowledge-intensive micro-visits lead by our mediators.
