Britney Spears’s Artwork is headed to a Gallery in France.
Galerie Sympa, in the south-western village of Figeac, France, announced the show on Instagram recently.
It seems that Britney Spears is cementing her status as a multi-hyphenate in the new decade. The pop singer‘s original artwork is set to be featured in a show opening in France on January 18th, reports Artsy. Galerie Sympa, based in the south-western village of Figeac, announced the news of the exhibition in an Instagram post on Monday.
The gallery’s website offers no further details — including how many pieces will be featured in it, how the gallery and Spears first began talks, and whether or not the “Oops!…I Did It Again” singer will be present at the opening. What is known is that the exhibition will be titled “Sometimes you just go to play!” and will run “Till the world ends.” The title is a nod to the caption of the infamous video that Spears shared to Instagram and Twitter back in 2017, which showed her painting on a small easel while Mozart’s “Piano Sonata 11” plays in the background. The end date, of course, is a nod to her hit 2011 song.
The “Gimme More” singer donated one of her works—a canvas painting depicting flowers painted in pink, purple and blue hues— to a Las Vegas charity auction back in 2017. It sold to Robin Leach, the onetime host of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous for $10,000, and Spears donated the proceeds to benefit victims of the shooting that had happened in Las Vegas just one month prior. “The flowers in my painting represent a new beginning, and it’s in that spirit that we move forward,” she reportedly said in a video message at the time of the benefit. The same painting is used to advertise Spears’s upcoming solo show on Galerie Sympa’s website, suggesting that it will likely be shown as part of the exhibition.
