Jack Pierson Exhibit

What’s better than a little dose of art to recoup from the opulence of couture? So if you’re killing time in Paris waiting to place your Givenchy gown orders (we’re saving up for the gold number), take a stroll down to Thaddaeus Ropac gallery for their latest exhibit, featuring the work of American bad boy Jack Pierson. An idol and Jedi master to a whole generation (including Ryan McGinley), the photographer has gone slightly romantic, weaving a decadent fantasy of Roman lovers and silent film stars. There’s even a cheeky allusion to his long career with the aptly titled Golden Years. The grand unveiling on Tuesday night proved that Pierson is still alive and kicking, drawing the likes of Mario Testino and Nan Goldin, who braved the Parisian heat to pay to respects to one of the originals. On view through July 30.
