Ron Mueck in Paris
The Ron Mueck exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris, France has been extended until October 27. I’m still yet to see any of the hyper-realist sculptor’s work and would love to use this exhibition as an excuse to go and have a coffee and people-watch in Paris, but the bank thinks my mortgage is more important! Damn my shackles.
There’s also a video showing of the London based artist working which is really interesting. Also, something new I just learned (I don’t know much about the sculptor) is that Paula Rego is Ron Mueck’s mother in law. Learn something new everyday
