reason to move to france


Let it be said there is a reason to move to France. The Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation in Paris designed by Frank Gehry. This new center will be built on island located on the Siene outside Paris. It will be the centerpiece of the campaign to invigorate France’s contemporary art scene. And if that is not enough, Culture minister Renaud Donnedieu de Vabres announced that the goverment has approved a new tax benefit to encourage young people to pursue careers in the arts and to entice foreign artist to settle in France. One benefit amounts to a 50 percent tax reduction for the first five years of an artist’s working life. Also, the country has reinstated a policy whereby public buildings projects must use at least 1 percent of their budget to purchase or commission artworks. You can read more about this in February’s ArtNews, and Dexigner.

car art


The BMW Art Car Collection started in 1975 when Alexander Calder transformed french racing driver Herve Poulain BMW 3.0 CSL into a work of art before its 24-hour race in Le Mans. Enthusiasm for the art car concept soon grew, as famous artists such as Frank Stella, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein created their own unique cars. Today the BMW Art Car Collection totals 15 automotive works of art, as nine countries from every continent of the world are represented. The show comes to the Whitney Museum in 2008.

gallery name and concept


Limited Addiction Gallery opens its doors this weekend. Their roster of artists is pretty impressive as is the way it came to be. Above is a gorgeous Dalek piece which they have available for $2500.
From their site…
The Limited Addiction concept began when a group of collectors nationwide created an art discussion forum in March, 2005 around an emerging art movement. The rapid growth of the forum sparked the development of the Gallery, and it grew organically in line with the interests of the forum’s community.

reaffirmation of banksy’s greatness


After painting over a banksy piece in a railway station in the U.K. and recieving massive complaints from the public, a network railway spokesperson had this to say… “We have now issued our maintenance crews with photographs of Banksy’s work, so if they come across it, they’ll recognise it for what it is. We will then try and remove it if at all possible and auction it for charity.”
