Exhibition Joseph Kosuth “Neither Appearance Nor Illusion”

from October 22, 2009 to June 21, 2010

Sentences written in French using neon tubing are suspended along the walls of the medieval Louvre.
Joseph Kosuth, a major figure of the contemporary international art scene, temporarily lays claim to the excavated ancient Louvre, offering visitors a dense and luminous work.

He has thus chosen to work in the Louvre’s medieval moat and write on the old walls of the ramparts, the keep and Saint Louis Room, thereby inviting spectators into this mysterious, subterranean space.

Organized by: Marie-Laure Bernadac, Curator in Charge, Special Advisor on Contemporary Art, Musée du Louvre
