DVD Voyage dans ma collection
by Alyssa Verbizh
For La maison rouge’s tenth anniversary in 2014, Antoine de Galbert presented a first-time showing of 100 works from his collection. Breaking with convention, these were hung not based on the recommendations of a curator/art historian but randomly, as dictated by a computer program with only the size of each work when framed and its inventory number as data. This behind-the-scenes film documents preparation for the exhibition and the questions such a singular approach raised. From the first meetings to the hanging, it follows Antoine de Galbert and the team at La maison rouge over one year. It is also a between-the-lines portrait of a collector who stands by his choices, regardless of which way the art market wind is blowing.
