As You Like It At Praz-Delavallade

Hunter Drohojowska-Philp talks about a group show organized for sultry summers.


From the episode:

The Paris-based gallery Praz-Delavallade opened their mid- Wilshire space last year and their current show presents both artists they represent and others they simply admire. Organized by René-Julien Praz, emphasis is on the pleasure of being out of doors, enjoying aspects of the natural world and doing exactly as you please. Based loosely on ideas in the Shakespeare play, As You Like It, works in the show relate to the forest of Arden, fecundity and bliss but also underscore the fragility of that natural bounty.
