The Dumas and Flaubert-derived title of the Air de Paris exhibition HOUSE OF GAGA—20 YEARS LATER (A SENTIMENTAL EDUCATION) refers to the year in the late 1990s when Fernando Mesta joined Air de Paris to do an internship.
Ten years later, Mesta and José Rojas founded House of Gaga in Mexico City. This Air de Paris show celebrates the gallery and two decades of art by Julien Ceccaldi, Nicolas Ceccaldi, Trisha Donnelly, Bruno Pelassy, Vivian Suter, and Danny McDonald (Mended Veil).
Through June 15.
