On the menu of this spring issue, we've put together a dossier on artivists and on the relationship between the commitment and the institutionalization of art, with Ernest Pignon-Ernest, Blu, Escif, C215 and Luzinterruptus.
London artist D * Face, the artist on our cover, recounts in an interview the evolution of his artistic approach; from his childhood dream - American dream and graffiti - to the reflection he leads today around pop culture. Kim Jung Gi, drawing genius turned "graphic performer", tells his story and his work.
Plunge without hesitation in the imagination of Agostino Iacurci, the Italian who apprehends muralism as a poetic act. We then discover a portrait of the all-Mexican artist Smithe who continues to deconstruct our reality with his fragmented compositions.
A third interview with Frenchman Thomas Canto invites us into his universe in three dimensions where volume, abstraction and light intertwine. Finally, we get lost in the thousand and one stripes and geometric shapes of Daniel Buren, while the Bozar of Brussels devotes a retrospective.
While Steve Lazarides's gallery is celebrating its tenth anniversary, we have investigated the recent seven-figure investment by a Qatari businessman and the new start for this English gallery. We also return to the event that marked the month of March: Blu repainting twenty years of work in Bologna, opposing the exhibition Street Art Banksy & Co which alone was already enough to raise the issue of the conservation of urban works.
We also discover the workshop of Hopare, close to Paris and we inform you of our visits of the exhibitions of Cleon Peterson in Hong Kong, Mode2 in Milan, Boris Tellegen in Brussels and group show "Rough Cast" at the Colab Gallery .
Finally, our agenda of gallery and museum exhibitions will allow you to miss no event by the summer!
