Perrotin launch #UNLOCKED

Perrotin launch #Unlocked — a series of artist interviews, studio and home visits, podcasts, playlists and virtual exhibition walkthroughs that they hope will bring us closer during a time of unprecedented change.

First up: Painter Claire Tabouret takes over

First up: Painter Claire Tabouret takes over Perrotin’s Instagram stories from her home in Los Angeles.

Enjoy Perrotin’s collection of virtual visits — Cinga Samson’s Amadoda Akafani, Afana ngeentshebe zodwa (Men are different though they look alike) and Bharti Kher’s The Unexpected Freedom of Chaos.

Join Cinga Samson in his Cape Town studio as he prepares a new body of work.
According to Siddhartha Mitter, The New York Times, the work is

“triumphantly single-minded,” adding that “His characters are black people, unperturbed and living their best lives; they mix jeans and undershirts with Xhosa robes and beads, tote shopping bags from the mall, feed each other grapes in a Dionysian scene at the Cecil Rhodes memorial”.

Here, Daniel Arsham walks us through the making of Paris, 3020.
For those that don’t know, Daniel was granted unprecedented access to the Réunion des Musées Nationaux (RMN), a 200-year-old French molding atelier reproducing masterpieces for Europe’s major encyclopedic museums.

Our new series #OnTheRecordWith asks our artists about everything, ranging from their creative inspiration to what is on their current playlist.
