Attention Francophiles and general art enthusiasts: the ever-evolving and inspiring shop Nationale delivers Portland a photo report from France. Shop-keep May Juliette Barruel spent a month of research and curation in Paris which included a Mike Kelley retrospective at the Centre Pompidou and a visit to the bookshop/gallery 0fr in Paris. Armed with loads of inspiration and an armful of specialty French items for her shop (get your espadrilles while they last!), Barruel returned this June. Pay Nationale a visit and catch the current Marie Koetjie exhibit while you're at it.
