Other great galleries you MUST visit if you’re in Paris…
“The exhibition at LE BAL testifies to the vastness of Antoine d’Agata’s production, the implications behind it, and the position of a man who instils the extreme experience of his own and others’ existence with a revelatory power. This deliberate, conscious choice to live life on the edge - the ultimate form of resistance - has resulted in images that become one and the same object. The body-object he uses to give a voice to contemporary alienation. The innumerable, the unspeakable, stupor, ecstasy, mutism all betray the relationship between d’Agata’s work and death; the limit he addresses and opposes.”

Another exhibition is by Ron Mueck at the Foundation Cartier Pour l’art Contemporian opening the 16th of April until the 29th of September.
Mueck’s art consists of realistic human sculptures and highlights a resonance of our time. His art has been recognized throughout the world with different events gaining global exposure when he started in a small studio in North London. It is a rare show to see and doesn’t happen often so if you are near this is a top recommendation.

Another well known artist, Keith Haring, is opening his show at the Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. The Political Line will feature Haring’s art that reflects political and society issues in today’s modern times. Sending messages of social justice, individual freedom and change, Haring hopes to move a generation with his art and encourage others to do the same.
