If you live near Toronto, or if you’re going to Toronto before june, I definitely recommend you to go to the Mike Nelson’s exhibition at the Power Plant, it’s terrific.

Louis Delaporte, “Angkor : Naissance d’un mythe - Louis Delaporte et le Cambodge”, Guimet museum
I’ve finally been able to go the Angkor exhibition at the Guimet museum! Of course it was awfully crowded and I nearly gave up when I saw the huge waiting line going as far as outside, but in the end it was worth the wait. A strange journey between imperial Cambodge and modern Europe.

Hiroshi Sugimoto, 1991, Indian Ocean Bali
Went to the “Accelerated Buddha” exhibition today. It was a very special experience, I’m too tired for writing more but it really made me think about lots of things. One thing I would recommend for anyone thinking about going is to stop by the shop and read carefully the Hiroshi Sugimoto monograph book, it really shows how clever Hiroshi Sugimoto is and how varied his works are. If the exhibition itself is kinda small, reading this book makes it really worth the price.
