The exhibition “The Pavement and the Beach” that is a group show curated by Mick Finch and Guillaume Paris will held at Paradise Row from July 8th to August 13th by 23 artists. There will be Private View and Summer Party for this exhibition on 7th July from 6:30.
The exhibition’s starting point is a phrase that defines an historical moment. The Situationist slogan ‘beneath the pavement, the beach’, famous from Paris ’68, proposed leisure as a potential site of resistance to the instrumental demands of capitalism. This exhibition seem to explores the historical shift that has rendered that utopian hope absurd.
