FIAC Paris Art Week Photo Report

2 years ago

We got back from Paris where we attended the fairs and some of the multitude of events that where going on in town.

Here is our photo report that includes some of our favorite works starting from Officielle with Ryan McNamara at Brand New Gallery and Maha Malluh at Selma Feriani; moving over to FIAC the next day, where our favorite included works like David Altamejd’s at Andrea Rosen and Paul McCarthy’s at Hauser & Wirth. At the Asia Now fair at Espace Pierre Cardin we enjoyed Insook Kim’s works at 313 Art Project and Gao Brothers’ one at ifa gallery.

Wandering around town we managed to see some of the exhibitions that galleries, museums, foundations and art spaces where showcasing such as: Follia Continua!, the exhibition that celebrates the 25 years of adventure, projects, sharing and madness of Galleria Continua; Take me I’m Yours, curated by Christian Boltanski, Hans Ulrich Obrist and Chiara Parisi at Monnaie de Paris, that transforms the venue into a space of creative exchange, designed to overturn the conventional relationship between art and the public; Beauté Congo – 1926-2015 – Congo Kitoko presented at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, which traces almost a century of artistic production of the African country; the deeply decadent and symbolist aesthetics of Hernan Bas exhibition, Fruits and Flowers at Galerie Perrotin; Christian Boltanksi, Faire-Part, a complete installation that talks about meditation on disappearance and the passage of time at Marian Goodman gallery; There is no there there at Edouard Malingue gallery, the first international solo exhibition of the critically acclaimed Chinese painter Yuan Yuan; Philippe Halsman, Astonish Me! at Jeu de Paume, a retrospective on one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century, curated by Anne Lacoste, curator at the Musée de l’Elysée and Sam Stourdzé; Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster. 1887-2058, an exhibition at Centre Pompidou that, through a maze of rooms, environments and passages, gives a complete overview of the French artist work. And finally the most talked about show, Ugo Rondinone: I ♥ John Giorno at Palais de Tokyo, the first retrospective of the life and work of the American poet John Giorno, a key figure of the American underground scene of the 1960s.
