While the cultural life in France has been a hit, a new MENA art gallery will arrive in the Parisian art scene between 27-30 May, from 13 different countries.
Among the exhibitions participating in MENART are two from Saudi Arabia - Mono Gallery and Athr Gallery. Consequently, the exhibition will also welcome collections from notable museums including the Palais de Tokyo, the Center Pompidou and the Museum of Modern Art in Paris. In compliance with social distancing, mask-wearing measures, and capacity restrictions, the event will take place in an intimate setting at the Cornet de Saint-Cyr auction house, which was established in the early 1970s.
The elegant space, distributed on three levels, is housed in a traditional building in the 8th arrondissement of the French capital, consisting of patterned white walls, art deco windows, and large fireplaces, it provides an interesting contrast to the liveliness and modernity of the artwork on display.
