Spotlight on the contemporary art world with Xavier Veilhan

In today’s Culture show we look at the extraordinary success of contemporary art. Eve Jackson meets one of the most interesting artists of our time, the inventive sculptor Xavier Veilhan. Also in the show the Paris contemporary art fair, the FIAC, thumbs its nose at the economic woes. We discuss this year's edition with our resident art critic, Sean Rose.
