Pharrell to Curate “G I R L” Exhibition at Galerie Perrotin in Paris
After co-curating last year’s “This Is Not A Toy” exhibition alongside Canadian non-profit Design Exchange, Pharrell Williams is due to make another foray into the world of art galleries in the near future. Taking cues from his new solo LP G I R L, Pharrell will be curating a “G I R L” exhibition in conjunction with Galerie Perrotin. In speaking to French publication Madame Le Figaro, Galerie Perrotin founder Emmanuel Perrotin revealed that the exhibit would fill the gallery’s new Hotel d’Ecquevilly space in Paris with works by 32 artists – 16 of whom are women – including Marina Abramovic, Valérie Belin, Sophie Calle, Tracey Emin, Guerrilla Girls, and Cindy Sherman. Pharrell’s “G I R L,” a nod to female empowerment, is set to premiere May 27 and will be open through June 25.
