Translating to “The French Street Salon” in Cantonese, the new show will introduce thirteen established and emerging artists active in the street art scene in France to Hong Kong viewers and collectors. Through its cohesive narrative, the show will highlight the participating artists’ diverse personal backgrounds, stories, and influences while drawing out points of confluence that make their works distinctly French.
After La Street Francaise, our first curated show in November 2019, we are back once again to highlight the diversity of French street art, this time with an expanded group of artists hailing variously from Paris—arguably the most iconic city of street art in the world—as well as Montpellier and Avignon in the South of France and the Brittany city of Rennes.
Many of the participating artists, including Joachim Romain and Ender, will be shown in Hong Kong and Asia for the first time.
More than thirty artworks across the mediums of paintings on canvas, pollard sculptures, art toys and prints will be presented at the exhibition. In addition to our main works, video interviews and performances will be shown during the exhibition to give viewers a more in-depth look at the participating artists’ backgrounds and processes.
