FIRST LOOK | “GIRL” CURATED BY PHARRELL WILLIAMS AT GALERIE EMMANUEL PERROTIN, PARIS
Continuing the push behind his new solo album of the same name, Pharrell opened his group art show GIRL at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris last nite with a gala reception and onsite concert performance for the beautiful people of The City of Lights. Marking his debut as a curator, the musician/producer/designer has brought together 48 artworks (including 18 by female artists) in Galerie Perrotin’s new space, the Salle de Bal, a former ballroom at the Hôtel du Grand Veneur, a 17th century Hôtel Particulier in the Marais area of Paris. Designed to create a visual extension of Pharrell’s current musical examination of and tribute to modern femininity, the show includes works by modern art stars like Chiho Aoshima, Daniel Arsham, Tracey Emin, KAWS, Yoko Ono, Takashi Murakami, JR, Terry Richardson, MR., Ryan McGinley, Cindy Sherman, Taryn Simon, Aya Takano, and Andy Warhol, among others. When questioned about his interest in visual art, Pharrell explained, “I have always mixed artworks into my music, clothing, jewelry and my entire way of life. They stimulate creativity, mutual curiosity, and simply happiness! I’m like a student when I’m with visual artists, I love to learn from them. Artworks teach you how to live and think differently”.
