Exhibition “Les Femmes s’en mêLent revisited: Facts and Fantaisies” Curated by Stéphane Amiel & Marie Magnier
February 1-25, 2017 Opening Tuesday January 31, 6-9pm
In February 2017, Les Femmes s’en Mêlent festival (LFSM) and Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire (LFDC) decided to celebrate their 20th anniversary together. These two Paris-based institutions both de- velop and defend an original and finally quite similar vision of women artistic expression. For this reason, it only seemed natural for the gallery to host an exhibition on the history of the festival and more broadly, on women iconography in the music world. More information & PR are here.

This unexpected juxtaposition playfully subverts cultural spaces and punctures meanings traditionally associated with them, while posing questions about power, gender, colonialism and cultural appropriation through allegory.

HAPPINESS, A PLACE IN THE SUN
SEPTEMBER 20 – NOVEMBER 5, 2016
The International Photography Festival ENCONTROS DA IMAGEM returns to the city of Braga to focus on the affective dimension, during a time of tremendous changes and upheavals.

A selection of works from Punks (Karen Knorr and Olivier Richon) will be appearing in an exhibition marking the 40th anniversary of the British punk movement. The other artists included are: Simon Barker, Dennis Morris, Jamie Reid, Shiela Rock and Ray Stevenson. More info is here.
