Arty party is way out

An invitation has landed on Astragal’s desk to the first anniversary celebrations of MacVal, the museum of contemporary art in Marne la Vallée, on the outskirts of Paris. The party, on the evening of Friday 1 December, will include a ‘spectacle’ by Xavier Veilhan with music composed and played by Sébastien Tellier. Sadly, Astragal will be unable to attend but notes that the guests will be picked up in smart coaches at Châtelet in the centre of Paris. This will prevent the glitterati having to struggle out on the metro and seedy buses or to find a safe place to park. MacVal may be a brave new art venture, but it sits in a depressing urban wasteland beyond anything that a UK city can produce. Let’s hope that the catering is good – there is nowhere to eat for miles around
