And here's some news for art lovers out there. France is hosting a contemporary art exhibition, showcasing the best works of an internationally known artist, Lee Ufan.

Lee is a South Korean minimalist painter and sculptor. The 77-year-old has created a variety of artworks made of stone and steel that are being displayed in the gardens of Versailles palace. And all of them are entirely new. Some even have an unusual size to correspond to the spaces in the gardens. That includes this imposing 12-meter-high solid metallic arch sculpture that’s enclosed by two giant rocks. Over the past few years, the Versailles gardens have showcased works by other artists as well. But Lee Ufan’s work is like no other. The exhibition will continue to run until November 2nd.
