Must-See: Immerse Yourself in PZ Opassuksatit's Sensation Universe

Tonight in Paris, the culmination of events orchestrated by PZ Opassuksatit will take place at the PZWORLD PROPERTIES OPEN HOUSE at Oddity, now renamed Monsieur Agent for the occasion. In her latest work, PZWORLD PROPERTIES, the Thai artist based in Paris continues her exploration of the blurred boundaries between art, fashion, and daily life. This third edition follows the resounding success of her previous volumes, where she has already shone with her unique approach and quirky style. For this new project, she delves into the real estate universe, positioning herself as an expert in properties with a touch of irony and fantasy. In addition to presenting fictitious properties, she playfully and inventively addresses all facets of real estate, from investment to renovation, and even pest control. Every page of the book reflects PZ's creativity and avant-garde spirit, as well as her eclectic network of collaborators, including fashion designers, artists, and designers such as Doublet, Vaquera, and Gab Bois.

Where to Shop: Support Young Artistic Creation at 100% L’EXPO

This week, instead of filling your probably bursting wardrobes, we advise you to decorate your shelves with works by freshly graduated artists. Every spring, La Grande Halle de la Villette transforms into a dynamic stage dedicated to young artistic creation with 100% L’EXPO. Until April 23, 2024, around fifty artists recently graduated from six art schools gather in this 3,500 m² space. This sixth edition is neither a traditional contemporary art fair nor a thematic exhibition but rather a lively celebration of the diversity and vitality of the new French artistic wave. By collaborating with institutions such as the Beaux-Arts de Marseille – INSEAMM, and other prestigious schools, La Villette facilitates an essential transition between the academic world and the professional field of contemporary art.
