The exhibition City Prince/sses is presented as an imaginary, multiple and complex city, without borders, messy, staggering and creative: an unpredictable laboratory, which is always in motion and being (re)constructed. Visual artists, creators, fashion designers, experimenters, tattooists, musicians: a good fifty artists are presented without any geographical grouping, mostly via new productions and in situ interventions.

Pierre Jean Mariette (1694–1774) brought together one of the most fascinating collections in the whole of the 18th century, particularly showcasing drawings, with some 9,600 sheets. Masterpieces by great artists stood alongside pieces of bravura by minor masters, in line with the encyclopedic commitment of this “genius jack-of-all-trades” in his effort to perfectly summarize the history of drawing, from its origins through contemporary artists. Following on from Pierre Rosenberg’s 2011 publication of the first two volumes devoted to French drawings from the Mariette Collection, the publication of a catalogue raisonné of Italian drawings likewise accompanies this exhibition of some one hundred of the most remarkable Mariette sheets from this school: works by the greatest Italian artists, including Raphael, Michelangelo, Titian, Veronese, Carracci, Guido Reni, and Guercino, have been taken from several Parisian collections, first and foremost that of the Musée du Louvre.

One of Jacques-Louis David’s (1748–1825) most famous pupils, and known as the painter of the Napoleonic epic, Antoine-Jean Gros is rightly considered a forerunner of Romanticism. Early on, his drawings, more so than his paintings, began to reveal a gradual shift away from David’s teachings, leading to a definitive break with neoclassical aesthetics and a distinct style heralding the new artistic movement.

An artist, writer and thinker, Ernest Mancoba (1904, South Africa – 2002, France) lived through the whole of the 20th century. For the first time in France, this exhibition showcases this path erased by racism.

Over fifty sculptures and sixty drawings to discover the work of the Danish Sonja Ferlov Mancoba (1911-1984), a major modernist sculptor who has also left us an original and intimate body of work on paper.

Sixty years in the career of Takesada Matsutani (born in Osaka, Japan in 1937, installed in Paris since 1966), from the late 1950s to the present day. Constantly experimenting with organic matter and its links to the spiritual, Matsutani has never ceased to seek out his “internal image”.

“HX” is the solo exhibition by Chinese artist Cao Fei (born 1978, Guangzhou), and the international debut of her long term research project “Hong Xia”. It includes the feature film Nova, a collection of videos, photographs and archive materials as well as installations. Together, they (re)narrate and (re)imagine the past, the present and the future of a changing community and its inhabitants in a rapidly modernized country.

The Centre Pompidou reviews the work of Bernard Frize, an important French painter on the international artistic scene right from his early work in 1977. Known for his conceptual abstract paintings, Frize integrated figurative elements into his practice in the 1980s and also developed an interest in photography.

Trisha grew up in California; now she lives and works in New York – and wherever she’s exhibiting. This is her fifth solo show with us since she first came to Air de Paris in 2002. She discovered Jean Painlevé’s films at school – like Michel Houellebecq, who was exhibiting here at the same time as the second part of our Painlevé series. The third part is vintage photos, mainly from the 1930s, of insects, small crustaceans and marine creatures, and we’re scheduling her with that.
