From October 16th until October 30th Galerie Droste will be presenting the 4th iteration of Sasha Bogojev's Universes concept in Paris. Coinciding with the 2021 FIAC International Contemporary Art Fair, Universes 4 will be on view at a pop-up location in the fashionable Marais district in the 3rd arrondissement.

Curated by the Juxtapoz magazine's contributing editor, writer, and curator, Sasha Bogojev, and organized by Galerie Droste, Universes 4 will bring another selection of international artists whose work revolves around depicting scenes and characters from their own distinctive universes. On top of being the biggest edition of the series, the presentation will also introduce a selection of sculptural works, marking the expansion of the concept from the flatness of a canvas into a 3rd dimension.

Altering the common elements of our shared reality through their own unusual filters, and/or portraying the inhabitants, settings, and scenes from their fictional worlds, Universes 4 presents the type of work that blends the imagination and technical accomplishment into an unusual and novel sensory treat. And while imagination and sheer creativity take the leading role in this exhibition, the masterful and wide-ranging ways of manipulating the paint or the chosen sculpting materials are bound to elevate the viewer's experience.

Ákos Ezer, Arjen, Asif Hoque, Bas De Wit, Bianca Fields, Bridget Mullen, Brittney Leeanne Williams, Carlos Rodriguez, Chia-Chun Chung, Daan Gielis, Dennis Scholl, Drew Dodge, Felix Treadwell, Hein Koh, Ivana De Vivanco, Jake Troyli, James Ulmer, Jason Boyd Kinsella, Jeremy Ville, Kiko Miyares, Koji Kastani, Kristina Schuldt, Lily Wong, Makito Takagi, Miguel Angel Payano Jr, Mira Makai, Olivia Sterling, Roby Dwi Antono, Ryan Travis Christian, Salman Khoshroo, Tomohiro Takahashi, Trent Whitehead, Wardell McNeal
