Art-Trope suggests 3 exhibitions not to be missed in Paris, New York and London :

Paris : French Landscapes – Bibliothèque Nationale de France
New York : Laura Owens – Whitney Museum of American Art de New York
Londres : Inside Pussy Riot – Saatchi Gallery

Paris : French Landscapes – Bibliothèque Nationale de France (until February 4th, 2018)

Since its opening on October 24th, 2017, the exhibition entitled French Landscapes, a photographic experience (1984-2017) at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France in Paris aims at offering a new vision of France. In fact, the idea is to show France’s profound changes since the 80s through 160 photographers’ artworks. Therefore, the exhibtion puts together over a 1000 photographs, including some from reknown masters such as Raymond Depardon, Lewis Baltz, and Elina Brotherus.

New York : Laura Owens – Whitney Museum of American Art (until February 4th, 2018)

For more than twenty years, Los Angeles–based artist Laura Owens has been pushing the boundaries of figuration and abstraction. Effectively, her ongoing artistic process consists in exploring the relationships among avant-garde art, craft, pop culture, and technology. The Whitney Museum of Fine Arts proposes a mid-career survey of the Artist. To that end, over 60 canvases extracted from Laura Owens’ 90s phase are put together. Therefore, the idea is to show how her early works deeply influence her contemporary artistic statement.

London : Inside Pussy Riot – Saatchi Gallery (until December 24th, 2017)

As sexual harassment cases have been hiting the headlines, London-based Saatchy Gallery hosts a post punk-feminist experience. Effectively, since November 15th, 2017, the Gallery has been hosting the new creation of Les Enfants Terribles entitled Inside Pussy Riot. In fact, Olivier Lansley and James Seager, founders of Les Enfants Terribles, invite the audience to an immersive experience. The goal is to make the audience understand what Nadya Tolokonnikova and her punk band Pussy Riot went through. Consequently it aims at making people reflect on protecting freedoms.
