Only in Paris—Veilhan at Beaugrenelle

I’m jealous. One of my family members sent me a photograph of a newly opened local shopping mall and I was amazed to see installed in the central atrium a mobile by Xavier Veilhan. You may remember Veilhan’s The Bear and his exhibition at the Phillips last fall. In fact, I had originally experienced the same sculpture when it was on view at the Grand Palais’s exhibition, Dynamo. Tell me, is it only in Paris that you can go from updating your wardrobe to seeing amazing art in the same place?
