Showing: Remed – “Plenium” @ David Bloch Gallery

David Bloch Gallery in Marrakech is currently hosting a third solo show from Remed. Plenium opened on December 23rd, consisting of a vibrant series of canvas, drawings and sculptures inspired by Spanish artist’s latest trips around the world.

Showing: Thomas Canto – “Illusory Perspectives” @ Centre Georges Pompidou
