Baux-way Boogie Woogie

Truly one of the most baffling exhibitions I’ve ever seen. I’m not even sure if I saw it, and if it’s an exhibition.

Les Baux, a medieval hilltop fortress ruin in Provence, is hosting a retrospective of Piet Mondrian. The exhibition is comprised of several info panels scattered around the gardens approaching the fort. There is no original art, or anything even close; and no explanation for why Mondrian or why here.

It apparently took eleven people from the government’s attractions management contractor, Culturespaces, to decide to print Mondrian’s wikipedia page on enamel panels and plant them on the lawn.

Meanwhile, the site’s trebuchet demonstrations and crossbow gallery, operated by medieval cosplayers, have apparently been discontinued in favor of art-related content.
