The 60th annual Montrouge art fair is, as ever, a joyfully eclectic exploration of contemporary young artistic talent.
It might be celebrating its 60th birthday, but art fair Salon de Montrouge is still as fresh as a daisy. With 60 (of course) artists invited this year, with an average age of 32, the Salon is an opportunity to discover a range of exciting young contemporary talents. Painting, photography, video, sculpture, installations, drawings and more are all included – keep a particular eye out for François Malingrëy’s otherworldly golden beach scenes, Marie Jacotey’s pop art-esque parodies of contemporary obsessions and Filip Marazovic’s symbolist extravagances. As ever, the Salon offers an explosive eclecticism, with Dadaist performances or cardboard Gameboy sculptures everywhere you look. It’s a bit bonkers, but on balance always a positive, encouraging, joyful display of artistic talent at its most enthusiastic, experimental and varied.
