Pharrell Curates His First Art Exhibit at the Galerie Perrotin
From 27 May 2014 to 25 June 2014
Music and art collide in the Marais
The Galerie Perrotin is offering the extraordinary opportunity to step inside of the happy world of Pharrell Williams with an exhibition called 'G I R L.' From now until June 25, 2014 the hit-making musician presents his very first art exhibition, which coincides with the release of his album, also entitled 'G I R L.'
The Galerie Perrotin is a famous Parisian art gallery that was established in 1990 by Emmanuel Perrotin. Located in the hip Marais neighborhood, the gallery is known for representing well-known artistis such as Takashi Murakami and collaborating with music artists like Massive Attack and Feist.
Now, it is Pharrell Williams who has been given free reign to open an entirely new exhibition space situated a few steps away from the Galerie Perrotin itself. The partnership with Williams first began in 2008, when the musician created a piece of furniture at the request of Emmanuel Perrotin. Then, after the 2013 opening party of Perrotin's new gallery in New York, Williams played a few tracks from his upcoming album G I R L.
This led to the continuation of the partnership between Williams and Perrotin, enabling Williams to select 34 artists to participate in his first art exhibition. Forty works will be on display during the exhibition, revolving around the theme of love, relationships and women.
