Exhibition from 1st to 25th February 2017

[ Vernissage le mardi 31 janvier de 18h à 21h ]

In February 2017, Les Femmes s’en Mêlent festival (LFSM) and Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire (LFDC) decided to celebrate their 20th anniversary together. These two Paris-based institutions both develop and defend an original and finally quite similar vision of women artistic expression. For this reason, it only seemed natural for the gallery to host an exhibition on the history of the festival and more broadly, on women iconography in the music world.

The audience will have the opportunity to discover concert photographs and artist portraits (Evelyne Coutas, Sarah Bastin, Florie Berger, Renaud Montfourny, Cécil Mathieu, Vincent Ferrané), paintings and drawings (Radenko Milak, Ditte Ejlerskov, LUZ), emblematic artworks of the “rock attitude” (SMITH, Karen Knorr & Olivier Richon, Charlotte Beaudry), text excerpts (Virginie Despentes, Maylis de Kerangas), posters (Hélène Builly, Mylène Lestradic…), articles, magazine covers and rare vinyls.
