T+L Reports: Painting Paris Red

An experimental new kid on the block is sending shock waves through the Paris gallery scene. Located in the increasingly swank Right Bank neighborhood of La Bastille, La Maison Rouge (10 Blvd. de la Bastille; 33-1/40-01-08-81; www.lamaisonrouge.org) is a contemporary space created by Antoine de Galbert in a 14,000-square-foot former industrial factory. There, twice a year, you can enter the private world of collectors, but expect a few surprises: in the first exhibition, a team of curators painstakingly re-created the living rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms (down to the trash in the garbage cans) of 18 art enthusiasts. In the current show, on loan from Harald Falckenberg (through January 23), visitors get a chance to see works such as Martin Parr's Common Sense and Nam June Paik's Video Scooter. The rest of the year, La Maison gives artists a blank slate. Next month, American conceptual artist Ann Hamilton will design a video and sound installation that takes inspiration from the original red house—hence the name—around which the complex was built.
