The Fondation Cartier presents the second part of its 30th anniversary: two exceptional exhibitions created especially for the occasion, Musings on a Glass Box and The Inhabitants.

Created by the internationally acclaimed interdisciplinary design studio Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Musings on a Glass Box is a complex work occupying the entire ground floor of the Fondation Cartier, where a disturbance in the ceiling will trigger a surprising reaction. The result is an immersive environment, including an integral acoustic component by American composer David Lang and sound designer Jody Elff that works with the building’s architecture to raise questions about transparency, perception, and one’s relation to space.

The Inhabitants, an installation created by the Argentinian artist Guillermo Kuitca, borrows its title from a film of the same name by Artavazd Pelechian. Occupying the entire lower level, it plunges visitors into a pictorial and sound environment, building an intricate network between his own art and that of fellow artists David Lynch, Vija Celmins, Patti Smith and Artavazd Pelechian. Guillermo Kuitca’s work mirrors the history of the Fondation Cartier and its unique way of establishing relationships between artists and artworks, inciting encounters of many kinds, and making connections from one project to the next over the years.
