On March 10, 2023, Claire Silver posted a Twitter thread stating that there was a miscommunication. Instead of appearing at the Louvre proper, her work would be shown at The Carrousel du Louvre, an underground shopping mall attached to the Louvre museum. “This is obviously not what Superchief, WME, or I had understood….At this point I’m going to pull out of the Paris exhibition altogether and am considering further options,” she wrote.
Silver admitted that she was partially at fault, as she didn’t wait for all the necessary paperwork to be finalized before making the announcement. “I assumed that by the time the Variety article came out, everything was ironclad and in writing. That was a mistake….I dont blame Superchief, my team, my agency, or Variety, all of which I admire and respect. I blame the person from Paris Blockchain that repeatedly misrepresented the event, & I blame myself for not having it in writing before letting my excitement & naivety carry me to twitter,” she wrote.”
