    Venus Over Manhattan, New York

    Coinciding with Franz West’s major retrospective at the Centre Pompidou, Venus Over Manhattan will present Dorit, one of the artist’s best-known and largest works, in the Jardin des Tuileries. For its debut European presentation, the colossally-scaled pink sculpture will stand twenty feet high in the Fer à Cheval, prominently on axis with the Obelisk on the Place de la Concorde. Previously featured in the center of Franz West’s breakthrough exhibition at New York’s Lincoln Center in 2004, and again outside the artist’s first American retrospective at the Baltimore Museum of Art in 2008, Dorit is one of Franz West’s most important works, which he returned to in a number of collages.
