Richard Mille
Richard Mille
FOR RICHARD MILLE, THE PERFECT TIMEPIECE MUST BE A TRUE EXERCISE IN THE CREATION OF COMPLEX, HOLISTIC RELATIONSHIPS THAT UNITE THE INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR OF THE WATCH.
The exterior issues of comfort offered by the ergonomic design approach and visually striking lines are important; yet they represent only the beginning of a long process in the creation of a timepiece. The interior of the watch, the entire movement, right down to seemingly inconsequential details of the shape and finish of screws, the architectural way the interior space of the case is utilized for the movement layout (which must also be a work of art on its own) is an aspect of equal importance to me. This is perhaps the essential heart of his approach – a view of watchmaking in which every detail in a timepiece is of crucial importance and easy solutions are not part of the working vocabulary. It is only when a complete unity of approach has been planned and executed in this manner that one can attempt to define and achieve perfection. These are core principles that define every timepiece within the Richard Mille collection.

Fondation Vincent Van Gogh
Fondation Vincent Van Gogh
Vincent van Gogh is a pivotal figure in the art of the 20th century. His oeuvre continues to influence artists and exert an unprecedented magnetism upon the public right up to the present. It was in Arles that Van Gogh produced – within the space of just 15 months between February 1988 and May 1888 – his finest masterpieces.

Inaugurated in April 2014, the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles pays due homage to the work of Van Gogh while at the same time exploring his impact upon art today.

This relationship with contemporary art was enshrined within the principles of the Fondation right from its conception. By presenting the painting of the Dutch master in the context of works by contemporary artists, the Fondation aims to stimulate a fruitful dialogue centred on interrogation and reflection.

Adopting a resolutely contemporary point of view towards an artist such as Vincent van Gogh, a central figure in 19th and 20th-century art, also means examining the unparalleled history of his reception. This latter alone would be sufficient to confirm that Van Gogh is an artistic figure still very much alive today.

The goal of the Fondation is to provide a reference point for the life and work of Van Gogh, in the city in which he arrived at many of the defining images of his artistic career, and equally to invite contemporary artists to express their connection to the artist through their own creations.

Fondation Luma
Fondation Luma
In 2004, Maja Hoffmann created the LUMA Foundation to support the activities of artists,

independent pioneers, and organizations working in the visual arts, photography, publishing,

documentary filmmaking, and multimedia. Originally based in Switzerland and envisioned as a production tool for Hoffmann’s multifaceted ventures, the LUMA Foundation produces,

supports, and enables challenging art projects committed to an expansive understanding of

environmental issues, human rights, education, and culture.

In 2013, Hoffmann launched LUMA Arles to plan, develop, and manage the Parc des Ateliers, an expansive former industrial site located in Arles, France. Situated adjacent to the city’s UNESCO World Heritage sites, the Parc des Ateliers serves as the major programmatic and cultural center for LUMA Foundation’s diverse activities.

LUMA Arles is an experimental contemporary art center where artists, researchers, and creators from diverse fields collaborate on multidisciplinary exhibitions and projects. Based in the Parc des Ateliers—a sixteen-acre site formerly occupied by railroad workshops built in the mid-nineteenth century—LUMA Arles includes a resource center designed by architect Frank Gehry; various industrial buildings undergoing rehabilitation by Selldorf Architects; and a public park designed by landscape architect Bas Smets.

The Parc des Ateliers has regularly hosted exhibitions and projects each year, while continuing to rehabilitate and make available to the public a growing number of large exhibition and programming spaces. In anticipation of its completion, the site’s main building, designed by Gehry, will be opened in stages, beginning in late 2018. Throughout the rehabilitation and expansion of the Parc des Ateliers, Hoffmann has worked closely with the LUMA Arles Core Group (Tom Eccles, Liam Gillick, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Philippe Parreno, and Beatrix Ruf), who present a program that fills the site’s completed venues —the Grande Halle, Les Forges, and the Mécanique Générale—on a rotating basis.

Recent projects produced by the LUMA Foundation for LUMA Arles at Parc des Ateliers in Arles include: Systematically Open: New Forms for Contemporary Image Production (2016); Imponderable: The Archives of Tony Oursler (2015); Frank Gehry: Solaris Chronicles (2014); Wolfgang Tillmans: Neue Welt (2013); To the Moon via the Beach (2012); Doug Aitken: Altered Earth (2012); How Soon is Now (2010) and the symposia How Institutions Think (2016); The Flood of Rights (2013) and The Human Snapshot (2011).
