There were a couple of pieces of art that he owned that he had loaned to the Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, I wonder how long they are going to stick around?
And do you think that the bailiffs were stymied by all the construction?
And what with all the talk about corruption in Montreal happening these days, I wonder if anyone at city hall or the museum cared that there was a lien on M. Marciano’s property when he proposed lending his property (because before he loaned the statues to the museum, he loaned them to the city first…) My take on the situation back in April 2010 here. Macleans take here.
Chris ‘Zeke’ Hand having a rambling discussion with Liz Pieres about some ‘public art’ on display in Old Montréal until September 2010. Specifically Shadows II by Jaume Plensa, The Volumptuous Man by Fernando Botero, Hommage à Eiffel by César Baldaccini (who also has An Ostrich on Roller Skates on exhibit in Old Montréal), Three Hearts on a Rock by Jim Dine, Love by Robert Indiana and Le tournesol polychrome by Fernand Léger.
