Pharrell Williams is known for putting on stage shows, but this time he has a new venture up his sleeve. Three months after the release of his album G I R L, the entertainer is paying tribute to women with a new art exhibit of the same name.
The art show, which is located at Galerie Perrotin in Paris, features 48 pieces handpicked or commissioned by the “Happy” singer himself. “I have always mixed artworks into my music, clothing, jewelry and my entire way of life,” he shares. Along with celebrating femininity, Pharrell says, “They stimulate creativity, mutual curiosity and simply happiness!”
According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Much like Pharrell’s musical and lifestyle ventures, the show displays a genuine sense of joy and features familiar faces, including works of art based on Lucy van Pelt (from The Peanuts), Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Mona Lisa, and Nefertiti. Among the contemporary pleasers are Ryan McGinley’s airy-fairy-like photography, and historic pieces such as footage of Yoko Ono’s 1965 Carnegie Recital Hall performance, in which the artist invited the audience to come forward and cut off her clothes, piece by piece.”
“G I R L” runs through June 25. Find out more details here.
