It was during the “Nocturnes” exhibition at the Fondation Henri Cartier Bresson (3rd arrondissement) that we discovered an unprecedented corpus of works by the Spanish artist Marie Bovo: photographs from five different series, but all taken at dusk, between dog and wolf, which magnify deserted cities and falsely depopulated spaces. While the confinement has just been extended until May 11, these images of the void, captured between France and Africa, seem particularly appropriate.

After two solo exhibitions, "Uma Historia de formas quebradas" and "7/7" at La Junqueria (Lisbon) in 2018 and "Soudure et Mayonnaise" at the Galerie Thomas Bernard (Paris) in 2020, it's time for the Palace from Tokyo to present the work of contemporary artist Kevin Rouillard in a new cultural event called "The Great Wall". At the same time sculptor and archaeologist of the present, Kevin Rouillard registers his artistic practice in an amazing recovery process.

Former members of Christie's, Olivia de Fayet and Fanny Saulay wanted to offer art lovers an accessible and pleasant place to find atypical works.

A comfortable loft where the favorite pieces of these 2.0 gallery owners blend into the decor.

The exhibition “Constructed worlds” presents around fifty sculptural works from the collection of the Center Pompidou. From the famous Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi to the Polish plastic artist Monika Sosnowska, the event explores the issues of modern and contemporary sculpture. To approach this century of creation is also to pay homage to the artists who liberated sculpture from the yoke of tradition.

Discovered on Instagram under the pseudonym Sejkko (@sejkko), the Portuguese photographer Manuel Pita immortalizes the isolated houses he meets during his wanderings in Europe, from his country of origin to Croatia via Turkey.
