Jean-Michel Othoniel at Versailles
If you have the chance to be near Versailles outside of Paris this summer, make sure to wander through its castle's garden.
Selected through an international competition, French artist Jean-Michel Othoniel makes history with his installation, titled Les Belles Danses, in the Théâtre d'Eau at Versailles. Three centuries have passed without addition to the palace's sumptuous collection of art, and now for the first time Othoniel has the honor to add a piece of permanent contemporary art to the castle's grounds with his three fountain-sculptures.
The opening ceremony in May featured dance performances by the LA Dance Project (founded by Benjamin Millepied) and Lil Buck, and the installation is on from 10 am to 6 pm.
