With the support of the French Ministry of Culture and the Galeria Nara Roesler, Artur Lescher presents Porticus, his first solo exhibition in France, at Palais d'Iéna in Paris from October 16th to 25th. Curated by Matthieu Poirier, Curator and Art Historian with a PhD from Université Paris-Sorbonne, the exhibition will display a set of works, including sculptures and installations, most of them especially created for the show. Palais d'Iéna, which had already presented artists such as Antony Gormley, Francesco Vezzoli and Carlos Cruz-Diez, will be now the stage for artworks that offer a transversal view of Lescher's production and propose a dialogue with Gustave Perret's building in terms of the geometric precision and the sophistication of the classic-modern architecture. The building was inaugurated in 1939 and is now the headquarters of the Economic and Social Council (EESC).
