From Wednesday to Monday from 10 am to 6 pm. Closed Tuesday.
This summer, the Japanese artist Mr., associated with Pharrell Williams, will have carte blanche. The installation, conceived specifically for the Rotunda, a magical space at the top of the Guimet Museum, includes a collection of new paintings and sculptures by Mr. It is populated with colorful childish figures, born of the encounter of the imagination of Mr. and the creative world of Pharrell Williams. The highlight of the installation, a large fresco created by Mr. presents an army of characters, children, as a nod to the tradition of the classic European portrait while being a little alarmist about the future of our planet. The exhibition invites visitors to enter Mr. G.'s fantastic world, a world where everyday life meets the supernatural. The project began almost five years ago when Pharrell Williams proposed this collaboration to one of his favorite artists. Multiple working sessions followed, both remotely and in the studio, to produce this unique presentation. © Mr. / Kaikai Kiki Co., Ltd. All Rights Reserved. Courtesy Perrotin
