Patrick Altes (http://patrickaltes.com)
International artist, whose solo show “Tolerance”, we are currently exhibiting.
A leading light in the emerging Franco-Algerian art movement, Altes’s first-hand experience of unjust, brutal and discriminatory societies fuelled a sense for the politically, socially and humanly acceptable which has become a thematic concern visible in all his creative work. In this timely, major exhibition, Altes confronts negative cultural stereotypes and advocates for tolerance and respect in times of angst, division and separatism.
