Initiated by the Emerige real estate group at the heart of its flagship Morland Mixité Capitale programme, L’Atlas, galerie des mondes unveils its space for the first time, with an exhibition bringing together four artists whose works have been commissioned and installed in the neighbouring hotel. One hundred and eighteen photograms by Thomas Fougeirol, two marble marquetry works by Alice Guittard, a ceramic work by Elsa Sahal and a monumental resin piece by Neïl Beloufa make up the SO/Paris collection. These works mark the beginning of the artistic history of this new neighbourhood, which will be continued by L’Atlas from next September, with a programme dedicated to the international scene.
For this inaugural exhibition, Laurent Dumas, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, wanted to associate these four artists and their galleries with a cause dear to the Emerige Group, the Racines d’Enfance association, whose mission is to support the education and health of children in Africa. A portion of the sale price of the works of art will be donated to the association for the creation of a new school in the Ivory Coast.
