836M Gallery presents:

La Rose des Vents Dedication

Thursday, September 15, 5:00pm-7:00pm, San Francisco CA


La Rose des Vents is a monumental work of public art located in front of the Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. Created by renowned French artist Jean-Michel Othoniel, the gilded, kinetic sculpture now belongs to the city's Civic Art Collection as a gift from 836M.

The sculpture's dedication ceremony, which is free and open to all, will begin at 5 p.m. on September 15 with representatives from several divisions of city government in attendance. In the first hour, attendees will be treated to a performance designed by choreographer Dimitri Chamblas.

Titled Slow Show, the site-specific performance features an ensemble of 50 local performers and music by artist and deejay Eddie Ruscha, responding to the immediate context of the location through a series of intense, concentrated and trance-like operations. Slow Show premiered in 2017 at various sites around Los Angeles followed by public square performances in Arles and Paris, France; an outdoor amphitheater in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso; and a frozen lake in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Following celebratory remarks, the program will close with a musical concert performed by special guests.


Jean-Michel Othoniel lives and works in Paris, and holds the distinction of being the first artist to have a permanent installation on the grounds of Versailles in over 300 years. He began working with glass in the early 1990s after being introduced to some of the finest glassmakers in Murano, Italy.
