ART with skis on your feet.
It did not exist last winter,
and yet it now satisfies contemporary art fanatics, who discover its long term standing in France, after having “taken their skis off”: the Aspen Art Museum has opened a new building, designed by Shigeru Ban, thank you very much…Having recreated our Centre Pompidou in Metz, the winner of the 2014 Pritzker Architecture Prize has inaugurated his gigantic transparent structure in the poshest resort in the States. Since its’ opening, it has played host to the most specialised of exhibitions! Current displays include artist Agnès Martin – contemporary specialist in abstract expressionism -, videos by Nick Relph and the installations of Lutz Bacher amongst others…but above all, you can sign your children up to specialist workshops between tobogganing sessions. Makes a change from the usual underground kid’s clubs, don’t you think?
