The programme
Exhibition Anish Kapoor

Exhibition Anish Kapoor

Gardens of the palace of Versailles / 9 June - 1st November 2015

After Lee Ufan in 2014, Anish Kapoor is the contemporary artist invited to Versailles in Summer 2015. Lee Ufan and Giuseppe Penone in 2013 wanted to « have a conversation » with André Le Nôtre. Anish Kapoor, though, will bring a more political perspective on power and its depiction at Versailles as it celebrates the tercentenary of Louis XIV’s death. From June to October, his work will stand in the Gardens and for the first time in a unknown though emblematic location in Versailles.
