Other artists featured in “GOLD!” hail from England, France, Belgium, Germany, Poland, and the Afro-Brazilian state of Bahia, Brazil. Walking around the exhibit, the viewer has the intriguing task of trying to guess which works correspond to which cultures. One thing is clear: no matter where the artists are from, or what their cultural influences might be, the material itself, noble and glittering, is the great unifier.
“GOLD!” is on view at Galerie Agnès Monplaisir, Paris, Mar. 20–Apr. 18, 2015.
