86 CULTURED © PHOTO DIANE ARQUES/ADAGP, PARIS A s Xavier Veilhan was preparing for his seventh solo show at Galerie Perrotin, his longtime dealer Emmanuel Perrotin suggested he make it a double. "It was definitely his idea," says Veilhan of his new two-venue show, "Music," on view at the gallery's Paris and New York locations. "I wanted to draw attention to the producers, the people who give shape to sound. I discovered that what they're doing is somewhat symmetrical to what I'm doing as a visual artist. We're all giving form to our imagination and desires." Among the subjects he's rendered in wood and metal are Giorgio Moroder, Quincy Jones, Lee "Scratch" Perry and Rick Rubin. "I find it amazing that there are producers who have had such an impact on the sounds we know, but remain relatively unknown." That may not be true for much longer—at least not in New York or Paris. By Tali Jaffe MUSIC MAN "Music" is on view at Galerie Perrotin, New York from February 26 to April 11 and at Galerie Perrotin, Paris from March 7 to April 11.
