Until September 12th, at Fondation Cartier in Paris, you can attend do a great exhibition developed by Beat Takeshi Kitano and called Gosse de Peintre.

Takeshi KitanoWikipedia says: Takeshi Kitano, born January 18, 1947, is a Japanese filmmaker, comedian, actor, film editor, presenter,screenwriter, author, poet, painter, and one-time video game designer who has received critical acclaim, both in his native Japan and abroad, for his highly idiosyncratic cinematic work—the famed Japanese film critic Nagaharu Yodogawa once dubbed him “the true successor” to influential filmmaker Akira Kurosawa. Several times rewarded at Venice and Berlin movie festival, his career of film maker is a brilliant one. What we know less is his talent for contemporary art.

gosse de peintre - Takeshi KitanoGosse de Peintre (Painter’s Kid) was developed by Kitano specially for Fondation Cartier. All different supports were used, from painting, to sculpture throught out video and sounds. Kitano also brought strange objects and machines that will entertain and surprise the visitors.  For him it is a way to show a funny vision of contemporary art, bringing subjects like Art, japanese tradition to a child level. Either a bad joke or the quintessence of the artist… it will be up to you to say.

From March 11th until September 12th.
