Paris Internationale welcome 55 galleries as well as eight project spaces from 19 countries
Paris Internationale 3rd edition. 11, Rue Béranger, 75003 Paris. 18—22 October 2017. Preview & Opening October 17.

The third edition of Paris Internationale will continue the effort to support a young generation of galleries and their artists. The fair will adhere to the spirit of the first two editions, but will see a complete departure from their aesthetic by exchanging the ornate settings of the hôtels particuliers on Avenue d’Iéna for a converted multi–storey car park in the Haut–Marais that housed the headquarters of Libération, a newspaper co-founded by Jean-Paul Sartre in 1973 in the wake of the Paris protest movements of May 1968, for almost thirty years.

In this context, that will resonate with current challenges to journalism and urban development, Paris Internationale will welcome 55 galleries as well as eight project spaces from 19 countries. Responding to the current climate of art fairs in regard to artistic production and reception. Paris Internationale is a joint initiative from five emerging galleries – Crèvecoeur, High Art, Antoine Levi, Sultana and Gregor Staiger – as a collective attempt to develop an appropriate model for fostering new advanced initiatives in contemporary art.

MdM Gallery presents: CAROLINA PONTE & PEDRO VARELA - TENDER CONSTRUCTIONS
'​Tender Constructions' propose un dialogue entre les oeuvres de deux artistes brésiliens, Carolina Ponte et Pedro Varela. Tous deux travaillent à étendre les frontières de perception du dessin. Une partie de leurs oeuvres reste posée sur le papier mais ils s'attachent à explorer les différentes façons dont le dessin peut influencer d'autres media tels également dans la forme des oeuvres. Les artistes créent ici un assemblage de références variées, semblable à un collage mental. 

Le vernissage de l'exposition est précédé d'une rencontre avec les artistes, autour de leur expérience de résidence à la Cité internationale des Arts, de leur travail et plus généralement, d'une présentation de la scène artistique contemporaine brésilienne. La rencontre sera animée par Isabel Junqueira, journaliste culturelle brésilienne vivant à Paris et Maria do Mar Guinle, conseillère artistique. 

Carolina Ponte est lauréate de la commission Arts Visuels de la Cité internationale des Arts. 

Mercredi 31 mai, 19h rencontre à l'auditorium / 20h vernissage à la galerie 

Exposition jusqu'au 30 juin 2017, Entrée libre, 14h-19h, fermé les dimanches et lundi 5 juin

'Lissa Rivera - Beautiful Boy' at ClampArt
ClampArt is pleased to announce “Lissa Rivera: Beautiful Boy”—the artist’s first solo show with the gallery.
 
Lissa Rivera’s “Beautiful Boy” portraits revel in gender as a repertoire.
—Stephen Vider, social and cultural historian
 
On the subway one evening, Lissa Rivera’s new friend BJ shared that throughout college he had almost exclusively worn women’s clothing.  However, after taking a professional job, he felt much less free to explore gender.  Lissa, having struggled through her own fraught relationship with the demands of proscribed femininity, suggested to BJ that perhaps photographs might help create a space for him to explore his identity outside isolation.
 
Lissa writes:  “Taking the first pictures was an emotional experience.  I connected with my friend’s vulnerability.  I wanted to make sure that the images were not a compromise for either of us, and we engaged in many discussions.”
 
Eventually, Lissa and BJ found themselves falling in love. Now romantic partners, the two are collaborators who have sought to “perform and reshape gender individually and as a couple,” writes Stephen Vider.  Rivera relishes in the visual pleasure an intimate muse can inspire, as so many male artists have experienced historically.
 
“Beautiful Boy” investigates a visual language of femininity that is deeply embedded in the DNA of our cultural perceptions. Drawing from Lissa and BJ’s shared interests, the earliest photographs mine the history of 20th-century film, photography, and painting. However, as the project evolved, the images began to flood over boundaries of scripts and sets, and reveal individual experiences of gender, desire, and cultural taboo.
 
Lissa Rivera is based in Brooklyn.  Her work has received multiple grants and honors and has been exhibited internationally.  She grew up near Rochester, New York, home of Eastman Kodak, where as a child she was exposed to the treasures at the Eastman Museum.  After receiving an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, Rivera worked professionally in collections, including the Museum of the City of New York, where she became fascinated with the social history of photography and the evolution of identity in relationship to photographic technologies.  Rivera was chosen as a "Woman to Watch" for the biennial exhibition at the National Museum of Woman in Arts. Selected honors include the Griffin Museum’s Peter Urban Legacy Award; Feature Shoot’s Emerging Photography Award; Photographic Resource Center Exposure 2016; Danforth Museum Purchase Prize; Filter Photo Festival’s People’s Choice Award; and the 2017 D&AD Next Photographer Shortlist.  She is now Associate Curator at the Museum of Sex in Manhattan.
