Galerie Perrotin - Espace Saint-Claude
23 May → 14 Aug 2020
From Tuesday to Saturday from 11 am to 7 pm. Closed Sunday & Monday.
Exceptional location, exceptional exposure! Restons unis is Galerie Perrotin's answer to the problems facing culture today. From May 23rd at the Espace Saint-Claude, mask to nose, come and enjoy a set of works selected by six or seven galleries (Crèvecœur, Frank Elbaz, Danysz gallery, Joseph Tang and many others), which will change every two weeks. At a time when access to cinemas, theatres and major museums is impossible, it is important to offer an alternative. This collaborative project is an invitation to return to the exhibition spaces, in complete safety, and is a first response to the economic danger in which galleries and all the people who depend on them, artists, assistants, vendors, transporters, find themselves today. Viewing rooms, although very practical when you can't leave your home, will never replace direct contact with a work of art. With this exhibition, Perrotin and the associated galleries come to remind us of the fundamentals of their profession: bringing artists to life, showing works, sharing their discoveries. For this second part, the seven participating galleries chose the song "You'll Never Walk Alone" written in 1945 as the title of the exhibition. This song was an immediate success during the Second World War because it had a particular resonance for those whose loved ones were at the front. Today, this song brings a message of hope and solidarity, and echoes the pandemic situation we are experiencing. The seven invited galleries present the artists aaajiao, Kaoru Arima, Sylvie Auvray, Pia Camil, Pierre Clement, Claude Closky, Justin Fitzpatrick, Laura Gozlan, Hendrik Hegray, ICY AND SOT, Florence Jung, Li Shurui, Teresa Margolles, Théo Mercier, Vincent Olinet, Alain Séchas, Abdul Rahman Katanani, VHILS, David Wojnarowicz and Zevs.
