I love the contrast in exhibitions where modern art or objects are placed in grand, traditional and stunning venues. It keeps institutions alive whilst giving the modern art gravitas. I'm posting rather late on this I know, but I loved the look of the Murakami exhibition at Versailles.
And I really really want to see the exhibition of 1930s fashion designer Gres at the Musee Bourdelle in Paris. My Aunt who is not normally into such things says its beautiful and judging from the picture below it looks very elegant. I've got until July 24th though so..
And these Venini lamps add a touch of humour at the Museo Bagatti Valsecchi Milan.
