PULSIONS@836m celebrates a sharp, creative dialogue between France and California. This collection of contemporary art delivers a brilliant cultural experience to the Bay Area community. It invites the audience to feel the impulse of the French art scene through a carefully curated selection of established and up and coming artists, each engaged with science, social issues, and politics. PULSIONS@836m questions the French artistic identity within an American context by framing exchanges, encounters, and rallying moments.
Before it's March premiere at the Museum of Art and History in Santa Cruz, and December showing at Pro Arts Gallery in Oakland, 836M will host a brief pop-up exhibition featuring the works of SMITH, Delphine Diallo, Anne-Charlotte Finel, Justine Emard, FENX, Tania Mouraud, Eric Michel, and curator Kalie Granier.
A juxtaposition of young talents and established artists, the exhibition highlights the vitality of the French artistic scene.
It makes so much sense that the 836M gallery presented PULSIONS. Since 2015, 836M, the gallery created by Julie and Sébastien Lépinard in collaboration with Agnès Faure, is driven by their shared passion for art, their wish to share it and their conviction that art has the ability to bring people together and inspire a positive and innovating change.
