Bethnal Green’s French Riviera is presenting an informal group exhibition about making things, Grand Magasin, developed in conversation between the London gallery and artist/curator Nat Breitenstein, opening November 30 and running till December 15.
Attilia Fattori Franchini, Harry Burden, Fabienne Hess and Leslie Kulesh are among the 40+ contributors invited to transform the space into a store over the next two weeks, as per the original storefront space’s initial intention. Featuring objects for sale by fine artists, designers and other “makers”, Grand Magasin explores notions of “craft, transference of skills, definition and profitability”, as a study not of “difference but rather of divergence”.
