Salon de Fleurus
Salon de Fleurus is an educational institution dedicated to assembling, preserving, and exhibiting memories on early modern art. Its permanent exhibit, titled from The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, located at 41 Spring Street, New York, was open to the public from 1992 – 2013. A selection from the Salon’s permanent collection was part of the Fiction Reconstructed that was shown in Ljubljana, Belgrade and Budapest from 2000 to 2002. In 2002, Salon de Fleurus was included in the Whitney Biennial, Sydney Biennial, and exhibition Am Anfang der Bevegung stand ein Skandal in the Lenbachhaus Munich. Selections from the Salon’s permanent collection were also shown at the exhibitions What is Modern Art? (Kunstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, 2006), The Making of Americans (James Gallery, CUNY Graduate Center, New York), Les Fleurs Americaines (Le Plateau, Paris, 2012), and The Unmaking of Art (e-flux, New York, 2015). In 2011, the Metabolic Studio (Los Angeles) opened another version of the Salon de Fleurus, with a collection titled Portraits and Prayers that more closely resembles the early twentieth century Paris Salon and traveled to Ashkal Alwan in Beirut, 2014.
