The month of March is a great opportunity to not only see the great art in the streets of Paris, but also to visit different shows and exhibitions, and maybe even invest in your little art collection?
We have selected the top 7 current exhibitions of urban art in Paris, and we hope you’ll love it!
1° « Birdland » Parvati’s first solo show
In-flight with Parvati
Milan Kundera depicted people with dog heads in his novel. Parvatin decided to turn them into bird heads. The artist opens up the door of the birdcage. She offers us a festival of feathers and colours, whispers to our eye some unknown yet familiar melodies. It puts into perspective our spiritual desire and our contemporary condition, reduced to that of consumers. An exhibition that elevates the soul and the state of mind, a lesson in humanity.
