"Any good work of art should have at least ten meanings." —Walter De Maria
This is the last week to see “Walter De Maria” at Gagosian Le Bourget, Paris—the show closes Saturday, April 22. To mark the last day, we will be hosting a symposium which will, for the first time, bring together collaborators of the artist, specialists, and acclaimed thinkers to explore the evolution of De Maria’s practice, discuss how his sculpture establishes a personal relationship with viewers, and question what this work may mean to today’s culture and life.
