Famed art dealer Patrick Seguin invited NY-based Gavin Brown’s Enterprise to take over his Parisian gallery for a group exhibition titled “Just what is it that makes today so different, so appealing?” The presentation is part of Seguin’s ongoing exhibition series called “Carte Blanche.” The group installments sees a roster of dynamic artists presenting original artworks that examine the functionality of household objects. Works by Rob Pruitt, Marck Leckey, Tomas Bayrle, among others fill the white-walled space.

“A home is altered by every encounter with an ‘outside’ world, as it does not exist without social exchange, and will reflect the broad political turmoil of our time. The ‘home’ is a living metaphor for one’s mind – a larger and contested idea of home. For whom and by whom. It is a personal indoor and simultaneously outdoor space, an echo of an inner-psyche. It is the private made public,” said the gallery in a statement.

View select works above and then visit Galerie Patrick Seguin’s website for further details. The exhibition will be on view from October 18 to November 23 at the address below.

Elsewhere in art, take a look at the sprawling “Dark Fantasy” exhibition featuring sculptures by Virgil Abloh, Rick Owens and more.
