Exhibition: Thomas Lerooy, Beauty in the shadow
For the first time ever, the Parisian Petit Palais hosts the contemporary works of young Belgian artist Thomas Lerooy in its permanent collection rooms. Over twenty sculptures and drawings by the artist are thus showcased inside the museum and its inner courtyard garden. The genius of Thomas Lerooy lies his ability to twist the codes of classic art: he plays with these codes to better transform them into something modern.
"Thomas Lerooy: Beauty in the shadow" exhibition, from March 26th to July 5th 2015.
Open Tuesday to Sunday, from 10am to 6pm.
