      Mid-80s here yesterday. Warmer today. I went out early. Might head to the beach for a bit shortly.

      1. mcpersonalspace54:
        I’m spoiled. It takes longer to roll out my towel than it does to get there.

  1. The hanging -well things. Reminded me of something. Oh it has been a long month this week.

    1. David:
      I added more info on those. (Forgot to note the artist, etc. while there). A Pompidou curator says those look like clusters of grapes. On what planet?

  2. Some of those pieces are stunning but when I saw Figurine In a Box Between Two Boxes Which Are Both Houses my first thought was old-fashioned console TV set.

    1. Bob:
      And it reminded ME of my parents console stereo that sat in the living room from 1965 until 2016. My mother hated it. It was my father’s baby.

    1. Debra:
      As you can probably tell, I love that line-up. I have pictures of it from every angle. Giacometti is one of my favorite artists (of many).

    1. Frank:
      I do, too. And I’m sure we’re not alone. A curator says they look like clusters of grapes. Huh?!?

    1. Jim:
      I wouldn’t mind visiting again and spending more time… without reading.

  3. These sculptures are wonderful! Much more appealing to me than most of the paintings in your previous post. The very oceanic suspended glass globes with their shadows on the indigo wall is very eye-catching. From a different personal perspective than some of your readers (!) the pendulous things look like a herd of camels from the belly down. It would be easy to spend hours and hours at that exhibit.

    1. Wilma:
      I love the globes and the pendulous…. things. And I love your perspective.

  4. Interesting artworks! Funny how the Giacometti looks so much like a television — while obviously the Charbonneaux IS a television. (When was television invented, anyway?!) The lone line of graduated globes is really interesting.

    1. I was confused by the “real” television, too! On investigation, my suspicions were confirmed – the first telly wasn’t invented until the 1920s (by John Logie Baird). The date 1917 is actually the year Philippe Charbonneaux was born, not the date of the exhibit – his Teleavia design was from 1957. Jx

    2. Steve:
      As I replied to Jon: Oops! He pointed out Charbonneaux was born in 1917 and the work was from 1957. I had a little problem transcribing the data.

  5. I first read your post at 6 AM my time, with my eyes barely open. I was surprised that the TV was from 1917 as I didn’t think the cathode ray tube had been invented yet, but I thought, those crazy French always serve up cutting-edge design! Then my bleary eyes took in the lightbulb jellyfish, the ceiling dripping with spider egg sacs and a huge coconut shell bra and I went back to bed. Now that I see all these photos in the cold light of day, it all looks the same, except I’m glad to learn 1917 was Charbonneaux’s birthday and not the TV’s, LOL!

    The long line of roundish objects in descending size was the most interesting one, but as you can probably tell, art galleries are not my natural habitat, LOL!

    1. Tundra Bunny:
      I love museums. Not so much galleries, because someone is always watching and, often, talking. I had initially been entering years that the artists lived, too. I got myself confused! I did love that long line and have another dozen photos of it.

Please share your thoughts...
