The facilities of Neïl Beloufa are always quite confusing. His carte blanche at the Palais de Tokyo, last year, had allowed him to lose himself in digressions on 2000 m2. Called it “a monumental and sprawling”, the exhibition sinked the visitor in a crash, more or less intelligible, mechanical objects, and videos. In the back galleries, the young artist franco-algerian 34-year-old returns to guest at Kamel Mennour, who is devoting her first monographic exhibition in its space in the rue du Pont-de-Lodi.

It is noted that the wall sconces backlit, made from several layers of colored resin are the most successful.
a few streets away, we find Neïl Beloufa in a collective show which celebrates the twenty years of the gallery. “The indian summer” celebrates the most beautiful parts of those who have contributed to the success of Kamel Mennour: Camille Henrot, Liam Everett, David Hominal, Latifa Echakhch… Or the reflection of an emerging generation worn by a merchant pioneer of talent.
