After the exhibition dedicated to John DeAndrea in June 2018, the Georges-Philippe and Nathalie Vallois gallery (6ème arrondissement) continues its study of American hyperrealism by presenting for the first time the hyperrealist works of the artist Robert Cottingham. Zoom on his almost photographic inventory of North American urban landscapes, Hollywood villas with details of urban architectures.
Photo enthusiasts were looking forward to this weekend! Until November 10, it is under the nave of the Grand Palais that the cream of the crop of the discipline is found for an exceptional event hosting more than 200 exhibitors. Portraits, nudes or conceptual photographs, there is something for all tastes, including for architects as we are. Focus on the best of urban photography and salon architecture!
In parallel with the flagship event of the Grand Palais, the International Fair of Contemporary Art is also exposed Hors les Murs. Contemporary sculptures and installations unfold in the Parisian urban landscape, from the Jardin des Tuileries to the Place de la Concorde. For its forty-sixth edition, the FIAC, in collaboration with the Victoria Miro Gallery, gives carte blanche to the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. As Halloween approaches, Place Vendôme, usually so serious, is adorned with a giant pumpkin, colorful and instagramable at will.
Presented at Sergeant Paper, a hybrid spot between gallery and concept-store of BHV Marais (4th arrondissement), the series "Street View Journey" by the Japanese artist Nao Tatsumi offers a new meaning to Google Street View. Inspired by these digital landscapes, the painter throws them on the canvas offering them a dreamlike pastel treatment.
Here is an amazing collaboration! Nina Dodd knits when Joseph Ford photographs. Their series "Invisible Jumpers" combines their two talents and captures unusual scenes where the clothes imagined by the designer blend with the landscape.
When one hears Banksy's name, no one knows what will follow. Urban installations, hotel or theme park design, no medium can resist it. Added to this list today is the opening of a strange boutique in London (United Kingdom) called "Gross Domestic Product" and bringing together the artist's flagship works in the manner of derivative products. So, publicity stunt or exhibition?
Who said dance and architecture don't mix? Certainly not the choreographers Gerard & Kelly who, on the occasion of the Festival d'Automne, invest the Villa Savoye and the Apartment-workshop of Le Corbusier. On the program: modern architecture and no two!
After his series "Selected People" celebrating the city of Boston (USA), the American photographer Pelle Cass is interested in everyday sports facilities. Thanks to the magic of Photoshop, he creates composite images that fascinate by their realistic appearance. A series that magnifies these spaces dedicated to the cult of the body.
Although the summer is coming to an end, the Scottish photographer Soo Burnell extends the summer period with its "Poolside" series, an ode to the historic European pools. A collection of photographs that pays tribute to the marked geometry and spectacular proportions of these sports buildings.
Following his residency at the Manufacture de Sèvres, the young French designer Arthur Hoffner is celebrated at his Parisian gallery (1er arrondissement) from June 19 to 28 September 2019. On the occasion of this exhibition, he continues to reinvent the interior fountain and presents his last three variations.
