THEATRE DU MONDE AT MAISON ROUGE
For its tenth showing of a private collection, the Maison Rouge invites the extraordinary David Walsh, millonaire, professional gambler, and founder of the headline-grabbing Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Tasmania, Australia, which Walsh qualifies as ‘a subversive Disneyland for adults.’ (Read more about him here, and here.) Curator Jean-Hubert Martin has delved into David Walsh’s own collection, as well as that of the newly reopened Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), to set up relationships between the form or meaning of these works of different origins. Unexpected resemblances are brought to light through themes such as ‘eyes,’ ‘body,’ ‘double’ or ‘war’ and features Australian and international artists including Marina Abramovic, Berlinde de Bruyckere, Sydney Nolan, Mathieu Briand, Arthur Boyd, Damien Hirst, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Erwin Wurm, Markus Schinwald, and Wim Delvoye.
Until 19 Jan. Wed-Sun 11am-7pm (Thu 11am-9pm).
