Un Vernissage Rouge

"... je questionnais simplement une certaine forme d'art qui privilégie, par facilité commerciale je crois, le ludique au détriment d'une vraie recherche de sens..."

Those words above echoed so much in my mind when, Alexandra & myself, we went to the opening of la FIAC on wednesday evening. Lucky us, yes, minus the hour & a half queue outside of the Grand Palais. I'm not the right one to judge but I do have the impression that the common sense & the beauty of art were not that much present on that night. Of course, you have the pleasure to see a piece of Calder, a Gunther Fürg, un sublime Nicolas de Staël... But what is contemporary art today ? I am afraid I don't have the answer...
