Happy #ValentinesDay! ‘My parents met in front of The Potato Eaters’. And we had the honour of arranging a trip down memory lane.
Jessica shared the moving love story of her parents. ‘At the time, my mum Donatella was an art history student, travelling with two friends across Europe. My father James was a young professor travelling through Europe after an academic conference. My mum knew quite a bit about Van Gogh, so when my father saw her intently observing The Potato Eaters, he guessed she might be interested in talking about Van Gogh. Thankfully, he was right. After wandering through the museum together, my father took her to the museum cafe for a coffee. They heard music coming from the Vondelpark and they decided to check out the concert. Neither one of them had tickets, so my mum climbed a tree that overlooked the concert and invited my father to climb up into the tree. They shared their first kiss up there. Forty-one years later, they are still a very happy couple, have raised two children and spend much of their time gardening at their New England home in the United States.’ #VanGoghCaptures #VanGoghMuseum #Amsterdam #Art #Painting #VanGogh

"A dictionary should begin from the point when it is no longer concerned with the meaning but only with the use of words. Thus “formless” is not only an adjective with a certain meaning, but a term serving to deprecate, implying the general demand that everything should have a form."
—Georges Bataille, 1929

Gagosian Paris is pleased to present "Critical Dictionary: In homage to G. Bataille," a group exhibition that takes its title from Georges Bataille’s deconstructive text and juxtaposes artworks of different time periods and styles.

"To our followers in Bilbao, Spain—Museo Guggenheim's newest exhibition, ""Bill Viola: A Retrospective"", is a thematic and chronological survey of Viola's career that begins with his early single-channel videotapes, including iconic works ""The Reflecting Pool"" (1977–79), and the compilation album ""Four Songs"" (1976). These highly poetic creations address some of the most important themes in the artist's output: the notion of time and its deconstruction, investigations into human existence, and experimentation with the recordings and manipulation of ambient and natural sounds.
