Exhibition: Mohamed Bourouissa, Urban Riders

For his very first exhibition in France, the French-Algerian plastic artist Mohamed Bourouissa chose the musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris (museum of modern Art of the City of Paris). He’s presenting "Urban Riders", a retrospective inspired by his movie "Horse Day" (2014-2015), shot in the Philadelphia (US), inside a poor neighbourhood of the city called Strawberry Mansion. This video paints the portrait of the associative stables of "Fletcher Street", created by Afro-American riders. They are known for sheltering abandoned horses and offering the district’s youth a safe place to retreat. The piece is surrounded by a set of approximately 80 graphic works, which question the notions of collective history and the representation of identities. This event is available until April 22nd, 2018, just a few-minute walk away from the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni.

Open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10a.m. to 6p.m.
