Two giants meet at Fondation Vuitton

What links Egon Schiele and Jean-Michel Basquiat? This exhibition showed me that despite being one century apart, coming from different cultures and backgrounds the two artists shared quite a lot. Both criticized their societies as well as ironized about themselves despite their existential anguish; they possessed sure brush-strokes and a frenetic creativity. Both also died way too young: Schiele (1890-1918) in the Spanish flu and Basquiat (1960-88) in an overdose.

An innovative way to discover art, through sound and light, is spreading in France. It started a few years ago in Provence’s low mountains, Les Alpilles, situated in the South. This innovation is lately also making a buzz in Paris.
