Galerie Claude Lemand
Stand B15
Art Paris Art Fair 2017 Grand Palais
29 March-2April 2017

On the occasion of Art Paris Art Fair 2017, Claude Lemand will be presenting an ambitious and impressive project titled FROM EAST, WEST AND AFRICA: a Solo show dedicated to the Moroccan Najia Mehadji and a Group show to 11 other artists.

The exhibition comprising of four Moroccan artists and four Algerian artists is an act of faith and of hope for the African continent, as Africa is the guest of honour in Paris this spring 2017, not only at Art Paris but also in various museums and public or private institutions. In a booth of over 120 sq. m., the fair’s largest, Claude Lemand sought to showcase to the 57,000 visitors of the Grand Palais the rich eclecticism of the work of thirteen artists from his gallery, who bear witness to the creative dialogue between the Eastern, Western and African cultures
