Close to Maison de la Poesie on rue Quincampoix, a still modest street of galleries in Paris, is the agnès b Gallery du Jour. Often overlooked for her sincere contribution as a curator agnès b. (fashion designer for the modern, European homme et femme) demonstrates a classically Parisian flexibility when it comes to multi-métier activities. Suitably so, Jonas Mekas exhibits works of poetry, video, sound recordings, stills, installation and artifacts all seamlessly conversing with one another.
