FROM EAST, WEST AND AFRICA - Booth B15

On the occa­sion of Art Paris Art Fair 2017, Claude Lemand will be pre­senting an impres­sive pro­ject titled From East, West and Africa: a solo show ded­i­cated to the recent paint­ings of the Moroccan Najia Mehadji and a group show of a choice of works by 11 other artists.

Solo show. Najia MEHADJI.

Najia Mehadji will be exhibiting her large com­po­si­tions, whether can­vases or gouaches on paper, in which she draws her inspi­ra­tion from the music and dances of Eastern and African mys­tical soci­eties and from the recent migra­tion move­ments to the North :
- Mystic Dance, 2016. Digital works on canvas, each one 200 x 200 cm.
- Gnawa Soul, 2016. Acrylic on canvas, 160 x 150 cm + gouache on paper, 50 x 50 cm.
- Blue Wave, 2016. Acrylics on canvas, 120 x 200 cm + gouaches on paper, 50 x 50 cm and 65 x 50 cm.

Group show: From East, West and Africa.

The exhi­bi­tion com­prising of four Moroccan artists and four Algerian artists is an act of faith and of hope for the African con­ti­nent, as Africa is the guest of honour in Paris this spring 2017, not only at Art Paris but also in var­ious museums and public or pri­vate insti­tu­tions. In a booth of over 120 sq. m., the fair’s largest, Claude Lemand sought to show­case to the 57,000 vis­i­tors of the Grand Palais the rich eclec­ti­cism of the work of thir­teen artists from his gallery, who bear wit­ness to the cre­ative dia­logue between the Eastern, Western and African cul­tures.
