Still trying to figure out what Mr. Roth will be presenting in his first Paris solo show, View in Room, opening on October 10 at Xpo Gallery, but his new Vine videos and tweets are starting to unveil the look. Here is the gist of the show from one of the best multimedia artists working today: The title View In Room comes from a common feature of art-for-sale websites that allows the user to view a piece of art on a virtual wall.

Living wall inventor Patrick Blanc's latest installation called L'Oasis D'Aboukir (the Oasis of Aboukir) includes plants from 237 different species planted in diagonal waves. Coinciding with Paris Design Week (Sept. 9th-15th) the wall occupies a five-story building and brings some much-needed green to the inhabitants of the city. We think there should be more of these out there!

We collected some of Lyle's older paintings to showcase his style...

We begin our afternoon by looking back at the work of Henrique Oliveira, whose newest installation "Baitogogo" we showed you last week. You'll find some more pictures of the installation and some of his earlier work after the jump! On display through the Summer, Ovlivera created this incredible installation using an a few mediums. Consisting mainly of tapume wood sticks, which are commonly used in the streets of Sao Paulo to construct fences or isolate developments from public entry. Oliveira creates a monumental experience by blending space and sculpture, encapsulating the viewer not only visually but physically.
