Gagosian Le Bourget

 In > art culture design
Just like Thaddaeus Ropac and his new space in Pantin, Larry Gagosian inaugurated a monumental space outside of Paris last month during the FIAC, also with a show by Anselm Kiefer. Adjacent to the private jet rich airport Paris-Le Bourget, 11km north of Paris, the bold new gallery space has been designed by world-renowned architect Jean Nouvel in collaboration with HW architecture. The exceptional space, an industrial building from the 1950s, comprises 1650M2 over two levels and provides the opportunity to exhibit large-scale sculptures, paintings and installations. For his show ‘Morgenthau Plan,’ Anselm Kiefer has filled the gallery with a sculpture of a golden wheat field, enclosed within a 5-meter high steel cage. Kiefer’s wheat field refers to the plan proposed in 1944 by former US Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau to transform Germany after World War II into a pre-industrial, agricultural state thereby limiting its ability to wage war.
Until 26 Jan. 11am-7pm. Closed Sun, Mon.
800 Avenue de l’Europe, 93350 Le Bourget.
