193 Gallery is an art gallery located in Haut-Marais, open since 2019. Cosmopolitan, colorful and warm, it is like the welcoming deckchairs installed in front of its entrance on summer days.

A Gallery therefore, which aims to take a tour of the world of contemporary art through exhibitions dedicated to some of the most promising artists from emerging countries.

Indeed, for César Lévy, director of the gallery, contemporary art is not reserved for American and European visual artists and collectors. With his team, he has made it his mission to introduce contemporary sculptures and paintings from around the world to a wider audience.

Until February 28, 2021, it is still color that will dominate at 7, rue des Filles du Calvaire, with a focus on abstract art and the visual impact of color through the exhibition: “Colors of Abstraction.”

Harry Moody, Abstract YellowBlue – Oil on canvas – 91,4 x 76,2 x 3,8 cm – 2019

Abstract art, born at the beginning of the XNUMXth century from Fauvism, Cubism and Expressionism, sees artists freeing themselves from form and subject. Artistic creation is liberated through color.

This first exhibition of 2021 brings together seven artists of different nationalities (South Africa, Mexico, Brazil, United States, France, Italy).

The artists presented at the 193 Gallery pursue this principle of liberation of form and subject in a very contemporary way through bold colors and graphic and clear-cut visual constructions, as illustrated by the crates of Valentina Canseco, the geometric combinations of Hugh Byrne and Ben Arpea, but also denser works where material and color become one, like those of Harry Moody, Aldo Chaparro and Anton Alvarez, whose variations of color through material are at the center of the concerns.

The best tattoo parlors in Marais

Tattooing, an age-old practice, has long been the prerogative of convicts, dock workers, the underworld and sailors. Although it has become democratized, now affecting all profiles and concerning one in five French people, including 16% women compared to 10% men, it still remains taboo due to its definitive and transgressive nature.
