The Ron Mueck exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris, France has been extended until October 27. I’m still yet to see any of the hyper-realist sculptor’s work and would love to use this exhibition as an excuse to go and have a coffee and people-watch in Paris, but the bank thinks my mortgage is more important! Damn my shackles.
There’s also a video showing of the London based artist working which is really interesting. Also, something new I just learned (I don’t know much about the sculptor) is that Paula Rego is Ron Mueck’s mother in law. Learn something new everyday
