Global superstar Pharrell Williams is trying his hand at curating. According to Madame Le Figaro, the singer of Happy is to curate a large exhibition at Perrotin’s new gallery in the hotel d’Ecquevilly in the Marais, Paris. Entitled Girl, like Williams’s latest album, it will gather around 40 artworks, including 10 pieces commissioned for the event. The exhibition is conceived as an homage to liberated women “freed by artist’s boundless imagination,” the dealer told Madame Le Figaro.
