Think of luxury as a way of life, a life that is abundant, overflowing - a luxurious life, a lush life. This group exhibition is the 'mode d'emploi' (user manual) for this way of thinking.
an exhibition curated by Nicolas Liucci-Goutnikov with Bernard Blistène
"THERE IS NOT ONLY MONEY IN LIFE. THERE IS ALSO FUR AND JEWELRY": had it been less long, this Elizabeth Taylor joke would probably have been an excellent title for the exhibition. In this time of financial crisis we should repeat loud and clear that there is no money in life and think rather of luxury. Think of luxury, but not as the transformation of money into furs and jewellery. Think of it as a way of life, a life that is abundant, overflowing - a luxurious life, a lush life. This exhibition is the 'mode d'emploi' (user manual) for this way of thinking.
The exhibition features works by: Boris Achour, Cecil Beaton, Erwin Blumenfeld, Marc Bohan pour Dior, Bill Brandt, Buffon, Walter Carone, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Matthew Darly, Olivier Dassault, Honoré Daumier, Wim Delvoye, Henri Duparc, Michael Elmgreen & Igmar Dragset, Sylvie Fleury, John Galliano pour Dior, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Jan Harmensz Muller, Georg Herold, Hiro, Thomas Hirschhorn, Damien Hirst, Ann Veronica Janssens, Yves Klein, Kata Legrady, Helmut Newton, Victor-Jean Nicolle, Martin Parr, Irving Penn, Francis Picabia, Tom Sachs, Roger Scémama pour Fath, David Seidner, Jeanloup Sieff, Yinka Shonibare, Xavier Veilhan, Raymond Voinquel, Paul-Emile Victor, Heimo Zobernig, Weegee
