It’s the first time in France that photographer Luo Yang, icon of the Chinese counterculture, exhibits a retrospective of his work at the Maison Dentsu. Listed among the world’s 100 most influential women by the BBC in 2018, Luo Yang is an avant-garde counterculture artist who questions the femininity of a Chinese society still largely dominated by the weight of traditions.
Entitled “Girls”, this exhibition, realised in partnership with Maison Dentsu and Moonduckling, an international agency specialised in the production of art projects, unveils photos realised over more than 10 years where the artist gives a committed, poetic and unvarnished look at the place of women in modern societies.
The exhibition, which is open until late November, is also an opportunity to discover the Maison Dentsu, a hybrid space in which co-creation comes to life to inspire and create singular, relevant and magnetic objects. Located at 176 rue de Rivoli and occupying some 300m2, this open house, jointly run by Thierry Jadot, Olivier Sebag, Alexander Sap, Julien Grollemund, Cécile Bitoun and Thomas Erber, is a unique bridge between creators and brands to imagine communication objects, reconciling meaning and performance.
As a gallery, creative agency, event venue, and art exhibition venue, it’s a safe bet that Maison Dentsu will become an essential artistic and cultural venue in the heart of Paris…
