Jacques Villeglé to be Awarded Prestigious Title


On Tuesday, November 23, 2021 in Paris, France artist Jacques Villeglé will become a Commander of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (the Order of the Arts and Letters) for his significant contribution to the enrichment of the French cultural inheritance. Villeglé was initially nominated in the summer of 2019 and will now be presented the medal by the former French Minister Mr. Jean-Jacques Aillagon. The Order of Arts and Letters was originally established in 1957 by the Minister of Culture with the purpose of recognizing significant contributors to the arts, literature, or prorogation of these fields. The Order has three grades: Commandeur (Commander), Officier (Officer), and Chevalier (Knight). Villeglé will be receiving the highest honor of commander, which only 20 people are awarded a year.

The Alan Koppel Gallery presents MILLENNIAL'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY, a space-themed group exhibition on view from February 19th - April 15th, 2016.
Humanity's vision of outer space developed exponentially in the 20th Century, shifting from the earth-bound perspective of cameras and telescopes to first-hand experiences of space exploration. The eclectic body of works included in MILLENNIAL'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY aims to form a timeline through our ever-evolving perceptions of outer space, as explored by a variety of mediums. The collection includes collage, sculpture, photography, painting and pen drawing, as well as objects and artifacts as diverse as a Sabatini space-age tea set, an astronaut suit, collectible robots and an iron meteorite. Featuring emerging artists alongside contemporary masters, the show juxtaposes generational and cultural notions of the cosmos.

This generation gap, in fact, formed the springboard from which MILLENNIAL's GUIDE TO THE GALAXY was conceived. The Alan Koppel Gallery held a show in 2000 entitled TOMORROWLAND, which showcased owner Alan Koppel's curious collection of robots and space paraphernalia. MILLENNIAL'S GUIDE curator Nicole Rudden came to the gallery in 2015, and conversation soon revealed how relevant and distinctive a similar show would be 16 years later
"There is a vast difference between what my parents' and grandparents' generations thought of the universe, growing up in a time when space exploration was a dream of the future. As a millennial, man's first step on the moon was a page in my history books between the Civil Rights Movement and Watergate," explains Rudden. "Technology has advanced and international relations have shifted in a way that's created an entirely new perspective on the "new frontier"-- the show is designed to be both playful and provocative, while grounding the artworks in their historical contexts."
Artists featured in MILLENNIAL'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY include Vija Celmins, Yves Klein, Daniel Bruttig, Edward Lipski, Dianna Frid, Melinda Marquardt, Alex Lark, NASA, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Lino Sabattini, Jacques Villegle and Sylvie Spewak.
The Alan Koppel Gallery will hold an opening reception for MILLENNIAL'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY on Friday, February 19, 6 - 8:30 p.m.
