High Up in a Pedestal: Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin

Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin is one of the most exciting contemporary art galleries operating in the art world today. The credit goes back to the man behind the commercial gallery himself, Emmanuel Perrotin, a truly inspiring individual with an exquisite taste for art. Over the years he had built an impressive roster of internationally acclaimed artists and continually searches (and finds) emerging artists from the contemporary art world.

Aside from offsite exhibitions such as Maurizio Cattelan's monumental sculpture at Palazzo Real, Piazzo Affari, Milan, and Takashi Murakami's Murakami Versailles at Château Versailles, his galleries have been producing fascinating exhibitions of their artists. This includes Paola Pivi's What Goes Round Art Comes Around, KAWS' Pay the Debt to Nature, and Daniel Arsham's Alter.

What Goes Round Art Comes Around shows the magical world of Paola Pivi through her latest sculpture and installation work. Being one of the most anticipated artist from the Italian art community, Pivi offers a unique perspective on objects and things around us. She ultimately justifies our focus on aesthetics and the environment we live in.

KAWS' Pay the Debt to Nature once again showcases the resurfacing of familiar photographs and twists on popular culture characters. The exhibition combines fiberglass sculptures and paintings. Brian Donnelly strikes again, this time with a more abstract twist.

In conjunction to Miami Art Basel, Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin put together a solo exhibition of Daniel Arsham. The exhibition, Alter, is comprised of three new body of works includingObjects from Antiquity, Push Puppets, and Pixel Clouds. My personal favorite is the Pixel Cloud piece, which I find to be very calming or soothing.
