Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in France
Farah Atassi

Farah Atassi
PARIS  •  Galerie Xippas  •  Ongoing

For her second solo exhibition at the Xippas Gallery, Farah Atassi displays a group of never-before-seen canvases that she produced in New York while at the ISCP residency. In these works, she confronts modernism with a rival aesthetic: German Expressionism and folkloric ornament.

Born in Brussels in 1981, Farah Atassi was the first to be awarded the Jean-François Prat Prize in 2012. This year she benefitted from a six-month residency in New York with the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP). Her works are part of several collections, including the National Museum of Modern Art/Georges Pompidou Center, Mac/Val (Museum of Contemporary Art in Val-de-Marne), and France's National Collection of Contemporary Art.
