Dressing The Air is the brainchild of the London-based artist Paul Schütze.

In a career spanning 30 years, Schütze has exhibited his photographic and installation works in galleries and museums around the world, released over thirty albums of original recordings, scored a number of films and performed numerous concerts. He has collaborated with artists such as James Turrell, Josiah McElheny and Isaac Julien and musicians as diverse as Bill Laswell, Raoul Björkenheim, Toshinori Kondo, Lol Coxhill and Jah Wobble.

Dressing The Air is a unique open resource that aims to enrich creative thinking by encouraging a multi-sensory approach. A constantly evolving archive and creative news feed, Dressing The Air monitors and reports on a diverse range of art-forms from cinema to sculpture, painting to furniture design, land-art to perfumery.

Guimet Museum

H & B Guidan

Paris, France

1889

Spectacular collection of Asian art housed in an non-descript vernacular structure which conceals breathtaking interior rennovations, articulating light and space and greatly invigorating the exhibits.

Light is the most articulated element in the design of the Guimet interiors. A masterful combination of natural and very carefully tuned artificial light enables every exhibit to be seen clearly without endangering light-sensitive artifacts. The arrangement of spaces is such that objects can breathe and in turn the visitor is able to properly digest what is seen, move around the works and feel some connection with the collection. It is only after spending time in this museum that we begin to see how sublime, compared to other well-known insitutions, it is.
