A lesson in luxury and mediums, and a nod to the lavish and extravagant display of the Palace of Versailles, Versailles Now present a challenge to commodity culture itself by using tropes, materials, and concepts often associated with wealth, quality, and value with the collective survey of works confusing and appealing to the viewers.  What is value in a world where we seek the cheapest alternatives?  How do we identify ourselves through something more than what we own?  This visually stunning exhibition of works seeks to answer these questions and more, while working within the realm of consumer culture.
