Pharrell Williams has a long history of supporting and being a patron of the visual arts. In addition to designing furniture, collaborating with artists like Takashi Murakami (remember that $2 million sculpture?), and owning a lot of art by KAWS, he ventured into curating last year, notably for the “This Is Not a Toy” exhibition at the Design Exchange in Canada.

Now, he’s taking it a step further and curating an exhibition at esteemed Parisian gallery, Galerie Perrotin. Founder and owner Emmanuel Perrotin tells Madame Le Figaro that the name of the exhibition is “Girl,” sharing a name with his newly released album. It will open May 27 (closing June 25) at the gallery’s new space in the hotel d’Ecquevilly in Le Marais, Paris.

According to Perrotin, it’s dedicated to strong, free women and will have work by 32 artists (16 are women) including Marina Abramovic, Valérie Belin, Sophie Calle, Tracey Emin, Guerrilla Girls, and Cindy Sherman.
