GOLDWYN’S BON MARCHE: Paris emporium Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche has tapped Los Angeles-based artist and filmmaker Liz Goldwyn
to curate its next cultural exhibition focusing on the City of Angels. From Aug. 27 to Oct. 12, Goldwyn’s exhibit will consist of two components. The outer one, displayed in 10 store windows along Rue de Sèvres, will feature images of rows of palm trees, superimposed with musical notes. “Every time I drive past the rows of palm trees I imagine a sound track,” said Goldwyn, who is working with musician Money Mark
to create a score that will play in a beat synchronized with passersby. The inside installment, titled “L.A. at Night,” will feature filmed images of Goldwyn’s “Underwater Ballet” billboards placed around the city’s landmarks, along with abstract shots of traffic and cars, projected onto various surfaces in Le Bon Marché’s third-floor, glass-topped exhibition space. Goldwyn’s portrait will appear on a billboard campaign around Paris. In conjunction with the cultural installation, a retail component will feature various Los Angeles-based designers including Current/Elliott, Joie, L’Agence, James Perse, William Rast and Splendid. Citizens of Humanity and J Brand will produce exclusive jeans for the store.
