G O S E E: LINE VAUTRIN: 100 years of magnitude
MASON GERARD new york, may 16th - june 21st 2013
“Line Vautrin, a revered French artist of the 20th Century once dubbed ‘the poetess of metal’ by Vogue… Vautrin’s artistic signature is very much in evidence in this extraordinary highly personal collection of her extremely rare and intricate detailed boxes. Carefully amassed over more then 40 years, it’s the largest of its kind to ever reach the market. It began with decades’ worth of romantic gifts from the collector’s father to his mother, with the son often brought along on visits to both Vautrin’s boutique and her legendary Marais atelier in the 50s and 60s.”

Recently appointed curator of New Museum’s 2015 Triennial, Lauren Cornell, spotlighted in the fall design issue of T Magazine, has come a long way from her childhood idealization for the director of the Whitney and ”has many reasons for championing difficult art: ‘because it is new, and thus not accepted or considered ugly and unhip; because it is old and forgotten and important…’ ” To follow her 2005 work with the museum on the inauguration of The Generational: Younger Than Jesus, the 2015 Triennial will be her third edition of The Generational where she will explore “how art can point toward the future in a moment when we’re so deeply obsessed with the past.”
