Pharrell’s “G I R L” Launches at Galerie Perrotin in Paris

Yesterday, Pharrell held a pre-opening party for his new “G I R L” exhibit at Paris’ Galerie Perrotin. The exhibit coincides with his album of the same name and serves as an exploration and admiration of femininity. Offering diversity in approach coupled with a common theme, “G I R L” presents art of various mediums setting out to personify that same diversity found in womanhood.

With “G I R L” opening today, May 27, we are now able to preview a few of the 49 pieces from the show, 12 of which are commissioned works specifically for exhibit, produced by artists that include KAWS, Takashi Murakami, Yoko Ono, Terry Richardson, the Guerilla Girls, Andy Warhol, Marina Abramovic and Ulay, Daniel Arsham, and JR.

Aside from the Pharrell affiliation, what makes this exhibition special is that it marks Emmanuel Perrotin’s first foray at his new Paris locale. The inspiration for the show stemmed from Pharrell letting Perrotin and a select few hear his “G I R L” album last year. As they say, the rest was history:

“After the launch party for my new gallery in New York in late 2013, Pharrell took a few of us to listen to the first 5 tracks of his upcoming album G I R L. The songs put us in such a good mood that we danced to all of them. At this moment, we realized that this tribute to women was going to be a worldwide success and would represent a shift in his career. Pharrell made us feel like we were part of it. This project at the gallery in Paris is a natural continuation of this adventure.”
