Basquiat and Warhol in Paris at the Fondation Louis Vuitton.
5 April – 28 August 2023
My invitation to the Press day opening came one day before opening to the public, on April 4 2023. I took the line 1 over to metro Le Sablons and walked an easy 10 minutes through the Bois de Boulogne to get to the museum.
Here are some of my photos, thoughts and takeaways.
“Painting Four Hands “ is the working title in English and perfectly namedas
We see the Beautiful chaotic and colourful works of two geniuses of the 20th century – both hands from 1984 to 1985 when they co-created 160 works of art.
Some 300 pieces are on display in collaboration with Fondation Brant who will later this year show it to an American public, after this show.
My greatest delights were the video and audio behind the scenes footage of both artists .
Also running into the man who first introduced the two: Bruno Bischofberger! downstairs at the reception and taking his photo.
