Maarten Baas, les curiosités d’un designer
7 October 2011–12 February 2012
Les Musée des Arts Décoratifs, located in the Louvre museum’s west wing, is the only museum in France which can offer a vast panorama of the decorative arts from the Middle Ages to the present day. The museum is focused on decorative-arts and design, and is internationally known for its distinguished exhibitions.
Les Arts Décoratifs gave ‘carte blanche’ to Maarten Baas for his first exhibition in a Parisian museum. Maarten Baas, famous for his iconoclast and fanciful creations, has imagined a universe inspired by the curiosity cabinets that first appeared in the 14th century.
