Niloufar Lamakan to exhibit at Salon des Refusés

I will be exhibiting my painting shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition at Salon des Refusés 2016.

The exhibition follows in the tradition of the 19th century Parisian Salon des Refusés, when Napoleon let rejected works be exhibited alongside those accepted ones after artists protested the Salon jury’s rejection of 3,000 works.

It’s hard to believe, but Édouard Manet, Whistler and other artists whose works are worth millions now, were actually not accepted for the great Salon exhibition in their times in Paris.

The 2016 exhibition will be held at SPACE in Mare Street from 23 to 26 June.
