A good reason to go on the Champs-Elysée, is this major exhibition on the French artist Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) held at the Grand Palais. Sculpter, movie maker, painter, she has been an inspiration for art rebellion over half a decade.

Known for her black “Nanas”, these Botero-like scuptural and colorful female figures of brides and women, this exhibition is more about her feminist side. She was a strong-willed, free-spirited and independent painter, who made it through the very masculine world of art in 1960s to become a reference for the next generations of female artists.

Before the famous “Nanas”, in the early 60s, she used to shoot at bags full of paints, put in front of her canvas, to spread the colors. A violent but intensely creative way of painting, isn’t it?  

The Gaudi-inspired ex-model also vehemently denounced religion -especially catholicism-, racism and patriarchy. Still in a very imaginative way, like the Rosa Parks “Nana”. Moreover, she didn’t want art to be out of reach for most of the people. Time for you to honor this will and head to that unique exhibition.

From September 17, 2014 to February 2, 2015. Book your tickets here.

Tip: Don’t miss the nocturnal session from Saturday January 31 10am to Sunday February 1, 8pm for 34 straight hours.
