Culture vultures jetting off to one of the stunning hotels in Paris
won`t have to look far for high quality art from now on as preparations build for the opening of a prestigious art gallery at Le Bourget airport.
A warehouse at the international gateway – designed by acclaimed French architect Jean Nouvel in the 1950s – has been converted by US art mogul Larry Gagosian into a vast new art space to coincide with the French capital`s FIAC contemporary art fair.
Forming the latest addition to the international Gagosian gallery group, the opening of the institution will include a purpose-made installation for the white, hangar-like space – a sculpture of a golden wheat field inside a giant steel cage – designed by German artist Anselm Kiefer.
The work fits in with Gagosian`s aim for the gallery to showcase monumental works too big for display in an inner city Paris location. Be sure to check it out next time you fly into the French capital on your vacations.
