40mcube

40mcube est un espace d’exposition d’art contemporain, une structure de production d’œuvres, un lieu de résidences d’artistes et un bureau d’organisation de projets d’art contemporain.

40mcube travaille en collaboration étroite avec les artistes tout au long des étapes que sont la recherche, l’étude de faisabilité, le suivi technique et la fabrication, jusqu’à la présentation des œuvres dans le cadre d’expositions monographiques et collectives, leur diffusion et leur médiation auprès du public.

Outre les expositions dans ses locaux, 40mcube présente des œuvres dans l’espace public, accompagne particuliers, entreprises, administrations et collectivités dans la commande d’œuvres d’art.

Parallèlement, 40mcube est à l’initiative et met en œuvre GENERATOR, programme de professionnalisation à destination de jeunes artistes et de jeunes commissaires d’exposition.

En 2015 et 2016, l’espace d’exposition et les ateliers de 40mcube sont temporairement fermés en raison de travaux. Durant cette période, 40mcube poursuit ses activités et propose la programmation Outsite : des expositions dont 40mcube assure le commissariat et la coproduction sont présentées dans différents lieux d’exposition et sur son site Internet.

http://www.40mcube.org

Founded in 2001, 40mcube is an exhibition space and office of organization for contemporary art projects based in Rennes. 40mcube’s principal activity is art production, where there exists a close interaction with the artist through all aspects of the process including its feasibility, technique, fabrication, up until the presentation and public mediation.

This process of production, from exhibitions to mediation, is made through a reflection on contemporary art, which is further shown through 40mcube’s published editions. Edited through a collaboration with partners of publishing houses and distributors, these publications are available in bookstores.

40mcube has developed several different sectors that act as a part of the organization : 40mcube – exhibition ; 40mcube – publishing ; 40mcube AV, which co-produces artists’ videos with the audiovisual sector ; 40mcube – public space, which works with artistic projects taking place in a public space, notably the project Chantier public and the New Patrons program created by the Fondation de France.

40mcube occupies an industrial building that includes an exhibition space of 170m², a black room dedicated to a programming of international artists’ films, an office, a studio for artists in residence, which all exists on a plot of 1100m² divided into three sections : a courtyard, a patio, and a garden. Considered a public place, this exterior site will be used to house artistic projects with the same statute as the exhibitions as well as works of a more permanent nature, which will eventually lead to the creation of an urban sculpture park.

Chatterjee & Lal

Chatterjee & Lal was formed in 2003 by husband and wife team Mortimer Chatterjee and Tara Lal. Based in Mumbai’s Colaba art district, the gallery’s program is focused both on the work of emerging artists and historical material. Increasingly the interest of the directors is towards the collapsing of the boundaries that have traditionally held apart work of differing practices and of divergent timelines.

Over the last seven years the gallery and its artists have formed an important node in the city’s maturing art scene. In addition to the exhibiting of work within the confines of the gallery, Chatterjee & Lal has also organised a number of projects that have utilised non-traditional spaces within the city by artists that use mediums as diverse as performance, video and installation.

Città dell’Arte

Cittadellarte’s aim is to inspire and produce a responsible change in society through ideas and creative projects.

Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto was instituted in 1998 as a concrete action of the Progetto Arte Manifesto where the artist Michelangelo Pistoletto proposed a new role for the artist : that of placing art in direct interaction with all the areas of human activity which form society.

The name Cittadellarte incorporates two meanings : that of the citadel or rather an area where art is protected and well defended, and that of the city, which corresponds to the idea of openness and interrelational complexities with the world.

Cittadellarte is a great laboratory, a generator of creative energy that generates unedited processes of development in diverse fields of culture, production, economics and politics.

The activities of Cittadellarte pursue a basic objective : to operationally take artistic interventions into every sector of civil society to contribute responsibly and profitably to address the profound changes of our age.

Cittadellarte is structured organically according to a cellular system that configures itself in a main nucleus that subdivides into different nuclei. These take the name of Uffizi. Each office carries out its own activity addressing specific areas of the social system. The goals of the Uffizi are : to produce a responsible transformation of global society, starting from their smaller local dimensions.

The Uffizi are divided into the following categories Art, Education, Ecology, Economy, Politics, Spirituality, Production, Work, Communication, Architecture, Fashion and Nourishment.

The logo clearly represents the cellular structure of Cittadellarte and reflects this in the way it organically functions.

Cittadellarte is situated in Biella along the banks of the Cervo River in the restored premises of industrial archaeology. The symbolic denomination Cittadellarte is united with the legal name Fondazione Pistoletto ONLUS that has an agreement with the Piedmont Region and the Municipality of Biella.

Dar al-Ma’mûn

Dar al-Ma’mûn est un Centre international de résidences artistiques situé à 14 km de Marrakech dans le village de Tassoultante (vallée de l’Ourika). Le projet s’affirme comme une plateforme culturelle ayant pour vocation d’apporter un soutien à la création en arts visuels et littéraire et ainsi favoriser la promotion de l’identité culturelle marocaine et africaine au-delà des frontières en œuvrant aux échanges interculturels. Nous considérons que la culture est un des vecteurs essentiels du développement économique et social local.

Dar al-Ma’mûn rassemblera des ateliers d’artistes, un pôle de recherche en traduction littéraire ainsi qu’une bibliothèque ouverte à tous, spécialisée dans les sciences sociales, la littérature, la poésie, l’esthétique et l’histoire de l’art. Dar al-Ma’mûn proposera tout au long de l’année des conférences sur des thèmes de société et des manifestations culturelles afin de sensibiliser les publics à la création dans une volonté de décloisonnement.

En attendant la livraison du bâtiment final de 4000 mètres carrés, Dar al-Ma’mûn s’est installé au coeur de l’Hôtel Fellah, s’engageant à nos côtés comme partenaire privilégié de part ses valeurs d’investissements éthiques communes. Favoriser le développement local

Le projet Dar al-Ma’mûn est conçu à partir de l’idée que la culture est un agent de développement personnel et social primordial. Nous avons donc deux objectifs principaux : être un outil pour les populations d’accroissement de la connaissance et une visée disciplinaire dans chacun des domaines où nous sommes actifs. Pour se faire nous développons des programmes à l’année envers les populations immédiates à l’environnement de Dar al-Ma’mûn : alphabétisation, accès à la lecture, sensibilisation à l’art contemporain et à la littérature, redécouverte du patrimoine bâti et artisanal local. Il en est de même avec des publics spécifiques, tels les étudiants en écoles d’art et en universités : conférences d’auteurs, traducteurs, intellectuels et artistes sur leurs pratiques, workshops de plusieurs jours avec les étudiants. Dar al-Ma’mûn est une structure unique au Maroc, la non-lucrativité de nos actions est un moteur puissant pour fédérer le milieu culturel marocain et en retranscrire la vivacité hors des frontières. Accompagner la scène artistique émergente

Dar al-Ma’mûn est un centre pluridisciplinaire regroupant des résidences en arts visuels, un centre d’art, un pôle de recherche en traduction littéraire et une bibliothèque de type universitaire. La résidence pour artistes ne se résume pas à la mise à disposition d’un espace : pour nous l’accompagnement des jeunes artistes en séjour est une notion centrale dans la définition de nos actions. Elle favorise la professionnalisation des artistes, elle se distingue de deux façons complémentaires : la production d’oeuvres et le développement du réseau professionnel. Ce deuxième aspect prend forme en amont par l’organisation d’un jury de professionnels renouvelé à chaque session et investi d’un rôle de tuteur auprès des artistes bénéficiaires et d’autre part, par la mise en place en concertation avec les artistes et en regard à leur pratique, d’un programme de visites d’ateliers à la carte : des professionnels du monde entier (critiques d’art, curators, directeurs d’institutions…) effectuent une visite sur site pour rencontrer de manière privilégiée les artistes en résidence. Dans l’optique de cet accompagnement, la création de partenariats avec d’autres structures culturelles partageant nos valeurs est capitale : nous développons pour nos résidents des programmes de résidences croisées offrant la possibilité de séjourner dans une autre structure de résidences d’artistes à l’étranger. Promouvoir la mobilité artistique

Les visites d’ateliers que nous effectuons au bénéfice de nos résidents et les programmes-mêmes de résidences internationales pour artistes et traducteurs sont les applications immédiates de notre engagement à réaliser un modèle de partage favorisant une pensée complexe et créant de la différence. Dar al-Ma’mûn est un lieu d’échange où le partage d’expériences et des savoirs, a vocation aussi bien à créer des dynamiques locales qu’à soutenir la création contemporaine dans son ensemble.

Aux confluences de l’Afrique, du Moyen-Orient et de l’Europe, dans un monde en pleine mutation qui a tendance à resserrer la politique dans des postures autoritaires, Dar al-Ma’mûn conçoit son action de manières transversales, polysémiques, et globales. Nous mettrons en place prochainement des programmes de mobilité pour les professionnels de la culture marocains et africains (étudiants, artistes, universitaires, curators… ).

General

Dar Al-Ma’mûn is an international center for artistic residencies located 14 km from Marrakesh in the village of Tassoultante (Ourika valley). The project emerged as a cultural platform aimed at providing support to emerging artists in visual arts and promote Moroccan and African cultural identity beyond borders by working towards intercultural exchange as we believe that culture is a key expression of local, economic and social development.

Dar Al-Ma’mûn will include artist studios, a research center in literary translation (Arabic-English-French) and a library open to all, specializing in social sciences, literature, poetry, aesthetics and art history. Throughout the year, Dar Al-Ma’mûn will offer lectures on social themes and cultural events heightening participants’ awareness of contemporary creativity with a desire of openness.

Awaiting completion of the final 4000 sq.meter building, Dar Al-Ma’mûn is currently settled in the heart of the Hotel Fellah, who, as a privileged partner, support our shared ethical and common values.

Encouraging local development

The Dar Al-Ma’mûn project is conceived from the idea that culture is an essential factor in personal and social development. We have two main goals : to be a tool to enable people to increase knowledge and a disciplinary aim in each area where we operate.

To do so we develop yearly programs dedicated to those in the immediate environment of Dar Al-Ma’mûn : literacy, non-formal educational programs, access to reading, awareness of contemporary art and literature, rediscovery of built heritage and local crafts. These programs are also aimed at other audiences such as university and art school students, author conferences, translators, intellectuals and artists talks on their methods and multi-day workshops with students.

Dar Al-Ma’mûn is a unique structure in Morocco and the non-profit-making status of our activities is a powerful force in unifying the Moroccan cultural interests and in raising its profile beyond borders. Supporting the emerging art scene

Dar Al-Ma’mûn is a multidisciplinary center comprised of residencies in visual arts, an art center, a hub of research in literary translation and a university-style library.

The artists’ residency does not just mean the provision of a space : for us supporting young artists in residence is a central concept in defining our actions. It promotes the professionalization of artists, and differs in two complementary ways : the production of works and the development of the professional network. This second aspect takes shape in advance by organizing a panel of professionals, renewed each session, who undertake the role of mentor with the artists and other beneficiaries, setting up consultations, and according to their methods, a program of personalized workshop visits from international professionals (art critics, curators, institution directors …) who conduct a privileged on-site visit to meet the artists in residence.

In view of this support, building partnerships with other cultural organizations who share our values is essential : we thereby develop alternate residency programs for our residents and offer them the possibility of staying in another artists’ structure abroad. Promoting artistic mobility

As mentioned earlier, the studio visits organized for the benefit of our residents and the international residency programs for artists and translators are immediate responses of our commitment towards achieving a shared model to promoting complex thinking and making a difference. Dar Al-Ma’mûn is a forum where the sharing of experience and knowledge, is intended not only to create local dynamics but also support contemporary creation as a whole.

At the coming together of Africa, the Middle East and Europe, in a changing world that tends to tighten policy in authoritarian postures, Dar Al-Ma’mûn sees its scope of action as transversal, multi-faceted and global. Mobility programs for professionals of Moroccan and African cultures (students, artists, academics, curators, etc.) are planned up soon.

Esther Schipper

Esther Schipper ouvre sa première galerie à Cologne en 1989. Ce qui débuta comme un lieu dédié aux projets d’édition de multiples et d’écrits, se tourna progressivement vers une galerie plus commerciale. Elle fut parmis les toutes premières à présenter des artistes comme Angela Bulloch, Liam Gillick, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Carsten Höller et Philippe Parreno. Tous sont représentés par Esther Schipper depuis le début de leur carrière.

En 1995, la galerie ouvre un second espace à Berlin avant qu’il ne soit entièrement déplacé deux ans plus tard. Depuis lors, la programmation a été élargie et inclut des artistes comme Thomas Demand, Ceal Floyer et Gabriel Kuri. Depuis 2005, la galerie représente la succession de General Idea. L’origine de leur relation remonte aux tous débuts de la galerie Esther Schipper, lorsque celle-ci ouvre à Cologne avec le collectif canadien. Au fil des ans, la galerie a constitué une somme d’archives des plus complètes.

En janvier 2011, après quinze années passées à Berlin Mitte, la galerie déménage à Schöneberger Ufer 65, un quartier voisin de l’historique Neue Nationalgalerie qui fut le premier centre des galeries à Berlin il y a cent ans. Le nouvel espace d’exposition est installé dans une résidence classique des années 1890, qui fut réhabilité par l’architecte berlinois Arno Brandlhuber, et dont les bureaux ont été dessinés par l’architecte berlinoise Christiane Schmitz.

Esther Schipper opened her first gallery in Cologne in 1989. What started as a project space for publishing multiples and writing, gradually turned into a commercial gallery. She was among the first to show artists like Angela Bulloch, Liam Gillick, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Carsten Höller and Philippe Parreno. All of them have been represented by Esther Schipper since the beginning of their artistic career.

In 1995 the gallery opened a second space in Berlin before it has been relocated completely two years later. Since then the program has been expanded to include artists such as Thomas Demand, Ceal Floyer, and Gabriel Kuri. Since 2005 the gallery represents the estate of General Idea. The origin of this relationship goes back to the beginnings when Esther Schipper initially opened her gallery in Cologne with the Canadian collective. Over the years the gallery has built up a most comprehensive artist archive which provides monographic material, and moreover documents the artistic interactions of the gallery artists.

In January 2011, after 15 years in Berlin Mitte, the gallery moved to Schöneberger Ufer 65 – an area in the direct neighbourhood of the historic Neue Nationalgalerie, which was the first centre of commercial art galleries in Berlin a hundred years ago. The new exhibition spaces are located in a classical residence from the 1890s, which has been redesigned by the Berlin based architect Arno Brandlhuber, while the interior design of the new offices has been realized by the Berlin based architect Christiane Schmitz.

Galerie Cécile Fakhoury

Ouverte en septembre 2012 et basée à Abidjan en Côte d’Ivoire, la galerie Cécile Fakhoury oeuvre à la promotion de l’art contemporain sur le continent africain en tant que structure locale dynamique. Son espace de 600 m2 entièrement dédié à la création contemporaine est un lieu de découvertes, d’échanges et de rencontres. La galerie propose des expositions individuelles et collectives, dont certaines voyagent, afin de donner une visibilité à la créativité et à la diversité artistique contemporaine en Afrique et de sensibiliser un public international. Forts de leurs identités et de leurs histoires respectives, les artistes de la galerie se distinguent par un langage qui a la particularité d’abolir les frontières en refusant la stigmatisation géographique. Le dialogue créé par les artistes de la galerie se veut résolument contemporain, fort, passionné, parfois engagé. Observateurs du monde dans lequel ils vivent, ces hommes et ces femmes portent un regard lucide et acéré sur notre société dont ils consignent l’histoire, contribuant à la mémoire vive de leurs pays et à la redéfinition de leurs liens au monde.

Opened in September 2012 and located in Abidjan in the Ivory Coast, Cecile Fakhoury Gallery’s mission is to promote contemporary art in the African continent by developing a locally based dynamic structure. Its space of 600m2, entirely dedicated to contemporary artwork, is a place for discoveries, exchanges, and encounters. The gallery will showcase individual and collective exhibitions, some of which will be itinerant to help connect the continent to the rest of the world and reach a worldwide audience as well.

At the heart of this approach is the desire of universality and sharing. Strongly rooted in their respective identities and stories, the artists represented by the gallery distinguish themselves through the use of a language that abolishes the barriers while rejecting geographical stigmatization.

The dialogue created by the gallery’s artists aim to be firmly contemporary, strong, passionate, and sometimes engaged. Observers of the world they live in, these men and women take a lucid and sharp look at our society and record its history while participating in the living memory of their country and redefining their link to the world.

La Galerie Krinzinger a été créée en 1971. Depuis, au moins 300 expositions solo, de groupe ou thématiques ont été organisées.

Une des lignes conductrices de la galerie tient à la performance et à la question du corps dans l’art (Chris Burden, Mike Kelley, Paul McCarthy, Nancy Rubins) basée à l’origine sur le travail des actionnistes viennois (Günter Brus, Otto Muehl, Hermann Nitsch, Rudolf Schwarzkogler).

À côté de cela, la galerie a toujours travaillé avec de jeunes artistes autrichiens et internationaux et représente : Atelier van Lieshout, Dubossarsky & Vinogradov, Erik van Lieshout, Jonathan Meese, Bjarne Melgaard, Shintaro Miyake,Werner Reiterer, Eva Schlegel, Frank Thiel, Gavin Turk, Martin Walde, Mark Wallinger, Erwin Wurm et Thomas Zipp.

Les derniers ajouts au programme (Zhang Ding et Sudarshan Shetty) sont le fruit des recherches d’Ursula Krinzinger en Inde et en Chine.

En plus du programme de la galerie, Ursula Krinzinger organise et assure le commissariat d’expositions dans différents lieux à l’extérieur de la galerie, notamment dans l’espace du Krinzinger Projekte, fondé en 2002. Orientées vers l’international, les expositions de groupe et thématiques définissent le programme du Krinzinger Projekte, qui a rapidement su gagner une réputation internationale. En outre, la Galerie Krinzinger et le Krinzinger Projekte invitent les artistes à participer à leur programme de résidence, incluant en ce moment des destinations en Autriche, Hongrie et au Sri Lanka.

Galerie Krinzinger was founded in 1971. Since then at least 300 solo, group and topic shows have been organized.

The main issue of the gallery program results on one side from international performance art and body related art (Chris Burden, Mike Kelley, Paul McCarthy, Nancy Rubins) based originally on Viennese actionism (Günter Brus, Otto Muehl, Hermann Nitsch, Rudolf Schwarzkogler).

Besides that the gallery has always been working with young national and international artists and is representing the following younger artists : Atelier van Lieshout, Dubossarsky & Vinogradov, Erik van Lieshout, Jonathan Meese, Bjarne Melgaard, Shintaro Miyake, Werner Reiterer, Eva Schlegel, Frank Thiel, Gavin Turk, Martin Walde, Mark Wallinger, Erwin Wurm and Thomas Zipp.

The latest additions to the program are results of Ursula Krinzingers researchs in India and China : Zhang Ding and Sudarshan Shetty. Besides the gallery program, Ursula Krinzinger also organizes and curates exhibitions in various spaces outside the gallery, including the Galerie Krinzinger project space : Krinzinger Projekte, which was founded in 2002. Internationally orientated, group and topic exhibitions define the Krinzinger Projekte program, that quickly earned an international reputation. In addition, Galerie Krinzinger and Krinzinger Projekte invite artists to participate in their residency program, that currently includes destinations in Austria, Hungary and Sri Lanka.

Galleria Continua

Galleria Continua est née à l’initiative de trois amis : Mario Cristiani, Lorenzo Fiaschi et Maurizio Rigillo, en 1990 à San Gimignano, en Italie.

Installée dans une ancienne salle de théâtre et de cinéma, Galleria Continua est implantée là où personne ne l’attendait, dans un lieu, San Gimignano, chargé d’histoire et intemporellement magnifique.

De nouvelles possibilités de dialogues et de croisements peuvent ainsi naître entre des géographies inattendues, rurales, industrielles, locales et globales, art d’hier et d’aujourd’hui, artistes de renom et émergents. Galleria Continua est ce désir de continuité entre les époques, ce vœu d’écrire une histoire présente sensible de la création actuelle qui nourrisse le lien entre hier et demain, les individus et les géographies diverses et inaccoutumées.

Ainsi, depuis près de vingt ans, Galleria Continua s’est forgée, au fil de rencontres et d’expériences, une identité forte autour de valeurs généreuses et altruistes qui ont servi de base à ses collaborations artistiques, à son rapport au public et à son développement.

www.galleriacontinua.com

Galleria Continua opened in San Gimignano (Italy) in 1990, the result of the initiative of three friends : Mario Cristiani, Lorenzo Fiaschi and Maurizio Rigillo.

Occupying a former theatre and cinema, Galleria Continua established itself and thrived in an entirely unexpected location, in a town (San Gimignano) steeped in history, timeless, magnificent. This choice of location provided scope for the development of new forms of dialogue and symbiosis between unexpected geographies : rural and industrial, local and global, art from the past and the art of today, famous artists and emerging ones. Galleria Continua is all about a desire for continuity between ages.

Remaining faithful to a spirit of perpetual evolution and committed to interesting as broad a public as possible in contemporary art, in the course of over twenty years, Galleria Continua has created a strong identity for itself through its ties and experiences.

The aspiration to having a part in writing the history of the present, a history that is sensitive to contemporary creative practices and which cherishes the link between past and future, and between different and unusual individuals and geographies.

Gazelli Art House

Gazelli Art House provides a new setting for Contemporary art whilst delivering the message of the finest international artists to a wide audience of both new and established collectors. The gallery invites individuals to engage with Contemporary art on a deeper level through bespoke events – building on dialogues and relationships between artist, writers, specialists, students, and novices through exhibitions, talks, workshops and tours.

In 2011, Gazelli Art House launched a series of five exhibitions in London loosely based on the five classical elements – Fire, Earth, Water, Air and Ether. Focusing on individual associations and reactions to the presented artworks – from aggression and passion to calm, rediscovery to new beginnings – each show was exhibited in a different independent space, with venues ranging from private houses and foundations to warehouse spaces, encouraging viewers to engage with and understand art outside the “white cube”.

The opening exhibition of its permanent space on 39 Dover Street marked the final exhibition of the series – Bodhi. Focusing on the awakening and enlightening aspect of the classical element Ether, the gallery thus began its programme of exhibitions with an ending ; completing a cycle and providing a conceptual continuity in the shows that is still present today.

In October 2012, Gazelli Art House reopened its exhibition space in Baku, Azerbaijan, where the gallery was once active in 2003. Implementing the exhibition programme from London, the gallery focuses on bringing and showcasing only international artists in the region, engaging further with a wider audience, and providing a platform for international dialogue.

The founder and Director of Gazelli Art House, Mila Askarova was born and raised in Azerbaijan before moving to Istanbul and later settling in London. Upon successful completion of her International Relations BSc degree at the London School of Economics and Political Science, Mila worked at Sotheby’s in the Client Development department while curating a number of exhibitions in Baku and Istanbul. She then managed the PR and Communication of a commercial art gallery in London, before focusing on curating and private art dealing. During her active years on the art market, Mila studied at Central Saint Martins and Christie’s Education, gaining a theoretical insight into Collecting Contemporary Art, Independent Curating and Art Business.

Une question abordée Cela lors d’un séminaire "L’art contre l’Apartheid", en 1985 puis monté en un spectacle qui dénonçant le régime répressif de l’Apartheid. En 2008, Givon a vendu la galerie à Liza Essers qui a apporté beaucoup de nouveaux artistes dans le catalogue de Goodman mais aussi maintenu de fortes connections internationales pour la galerie.

La Goodman Gallery a évolué dans son ambition de devenir un leader des institutions d’’art contemporain en Afrique et était la seule galerie du continent à figurer à Art Bazel en Suisse en 2010. La galerie est le foyer d’une quarantaine d’artistes incluant des artistes comme William Kentridge dernièrement exposé au Jeu de Paume à Paris et au Louvre, David Goldblatt, dernièrement exposé au Musée d’Art Moderne de New York et Moshekwa Langa, récemment exposé à la 29ème Biénnale de Sao Polo.

The Goodman Gallery is at the forefront of contemporary art in South Africa. Its focus is on artists from South Africa, the greater African Continent, and other countries that engage in a dialogue with the African context.

The gallery has a long history in South African art. It was established by Linda Goodman (now Givon) in 1966 and, from the outset, championed the work of young black artists who had little access to galleries and museums in South Africa. It was involved in the seminal Art Against Apartheid exhibition in 1985 and held shows that spoke out against the repressive apartheid regime. In 2008, Givon sold the gallery to Liza Essers who has brought several new artists into the Goodman fold and has maintained a strong international connection for the gallery.

The Goodman Gallery has evolved into the leading contemporary art institution in Africa and was the only gallery on the continent to feature at Art Basel in Switzerland in 2010. The Gallery is home to forty artists including visual art luminaries such as William Kentridge, (currently exhibiting at Jeu de Paume in Paris and the Louvre), David Goldblatt (currently exhibiting the Museum of Modern Art in New York) and Moshekwa Langa (currently exhibiting at the 29th São Paulo Biennial).

As well as taking South African artists to major international events and fairs such as Art Basel, Art Basel Miami and the Armory Show In New York, the Goodman Gallery has brought various international artists to South Africa including Kara Walker, Hank Willis Thomas, Jenny Holzer and Ghada Amer. All of these artists, as well as a range of artists from the African continent, featured on the Gallery’s 2010 collaborative initiative titled In Context. This biennale type event powerfully brought together artists from diverse backgrounds who all confront conditions pertinent the African context.

Goodman Gallery has major spaces in Johannesburg and Cape Town, a project space at Arts on Main in downtown Johannesburg, and a viewing room at the One&Only Hotel on the Cape Town Waterfront.

SAM Art Projects

SAM est l’acronyme de Sandra et Amaury Mulliez. SAM Art Projects, projet de mécénat pour l’art contemporain, a été conçu et crée en avril 2009. C’est une initiative privée financée exclusivement par ce couple.

Ce projet a vocation à aider, promouvoir et défendre dans le temps et à travers le monde tant le travail d’artistes contemporains venus de pays dits émergents, que le travail d’artistes français souhaitant réaliser un projet artistique dans un pays du Sud. SAM Art Projects souhaite ainsi encourager toutes les formes artistiques qui stimulent la création contemporaine plastique et visuelle, et favoriser les échanges culturels entre l’Europe et les pays émergents. SAM a ainsi l’ambition d’instaurer un dialogue entre les artistes, les professionnels, les collectionneurs et le public de l’hémisphère Nord et leurs homologues de l’hémisphère Sud. Dans ce cadre, ce projet de mécénat a lancé deux type d’actions :

1. SAM Art Projects attribue chaque année un prix, au mois de décembre, à un projet à destination du Sud d’un artiste plasticien résidant en France. L’objectif est de soutenir et confirmer la notoriété de cet artiste en favorisant sa reconnaissance par les professionnels de l’art, en donnant plus de visibilité à son œuvre à un niveau national et international. L’artiste lauréat du prix, sélectionné par un comité composé de huit personnalités renommées du monde de l’art, est annoncé tous les ans au mois de décembre. La dotation de ce prix s’accompagne d’une exposition dans un Module du Palais de Tokyo, et d’une publication.

2. SAM Art Projects finance et gère également une résidence d’artistes à la Villa Raffet, à Paris dans le 14e arrondissement. Cette résidence accueille successivement chaque année, pour une durée de cinq mois, deux artistes issus de pays dits émergents sélectionnés par le même comité composé de huit personnalités du monde de l’art de renommée internationale.

L’action de SAM Art Projects se résume ainsi à la remise d’un prix et à l’attribution de deux résidence chaque année, ainsi qu’à la production d’une exposition et d’une publication pour chacun de ces trois lauréats.

Hans Ulrich Obrist, co-directeur de la Serpentine Gallery à Londres, et Fabrice Hergott, directeur du Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville Paris, ont été membres du Comité de SAM Art Projects d’avril 2009 à décembre 2011. Ce projet de mécénat privé a été dirigé par Delphine Perru d’avril 2009 à juin 2011.

START by Serge Tiroche

START was established in 2008 by the collector Serge Tiroche. It is the first art incubator project in Israel. Through a variety of programs, it aims to assist artists, curators and collectors make their first steps in the art world, and seeks to promote Israeli contemporary art internationally.

START envisions an environment in which local artists can flourish, both creatively and economically. Conscious of the difficulties that young artists face at the early stages of their career and the gaps in the education they receive, START mentors, guides and finances a select group of young talents.

Equally important, START helps young collectors make their first acquisitions and through the Curating START program, now also provides a platform for emerging curators.

START also cooperates with Museums, Select Hotels, Galleries, Art Fairs, Auction Houses, the media, as well as independent curators to promote and expose works from it’s collection, or to facilitate the commissioning of site-specific artworks.

To support young artists in the first years of their professional career, START acquires a body of works and establishes an on-going dialogue with the artists, providing them with opportunities for public exposure and introductions to leading galleries, curators and collectors. It also offers studio space and occasionally launches artists at art fairs.

Today, START’s collection counts over 700 works by some 150 Israeli artists from multiple ethnic backgrounds, working in all mediums, styles and techniques. The collection truly captures the diversity of Israeli Contemporary Art and is perhaps the largest collection of its kind in the past decade, casting a broad net over a complex set of narratives and discourses.

START was established in 2008 by the collector Serge Tiroche. It is the first art incubator project in Israel. Through a variety of programs, it aims to assist artists, curators and collectors make their first steps in the art world, and seeks to promote Israeli contemporary art internationally.

START envisions an environment in which local artists can flourish, both creatively and economically. Conscious of the difficulties that young artists face at the early stages of their career and the gaps in the education they receive, START mentors, guides and finances a select group of young talents.

Equally important, START helps young collectors make their first acquisitions and through the Curating START program, now also provides a platform for emerging curators.

Thomas Brambilla

Thomas Brambilla Gallery has been founded with the specific purpose to present and create a real dialogue – not only formal and artistic, but also generational, among artists of different ages and formation. The work of the gallery has focused mainly on finding new artistic scenes (both American and Italian, with artists like Brendan Lynch, Grayson Revoir, Erik Saglia, Corinna Gosmaro, Alessia Xausa) combined with artists of a different generation, such as Ron Gorchov and William Anastasi, or Marco Cingolani and Thomas Helbig.

White Cube

White Cube was set up by Jay Jopling in 1993 as a project room for contemporary art. Although it was one of the smallest exhibition spaces in Europe, it was arguably one of most influential commercial galleries of the past decade. Situated on the second floor of 44 Duke Street, St James’s, one of London’s most traditional art dealing streets, White Cube, Duke Street was, literally, a simple white cube, a room within a room, designed by the architect Claudio Silvestrin.

The central concern when establishing the programme was to create an intimate space in which an artist could present a single important work of art or a coherent body of work within a focused environment, an idea that in some way, stemmed from the memorable experience of Walter de Maria’s ‘Earth Room’ in New York. The programme was singular among commercial galleries in that an artist was invited to exhibit only once. Since its inception, the gallery mounted exhibitions of work by many leading international and British artists including Franz Ackermann, Miroslaw Balka, Chuck Close, Tracey Emin, Katharina Fritsch, Mona Hatoum, Damien Hirst, Gary Hume, Ellsworth Kelly, Julie Mehretu, Doris Salcedo, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Luc Tuymans and Jeff Wall. White Cube, Duke Street closed in 2002.

In April 2000, White Cube, Hoxton Square was set up as a second, larger gallery space in London’s East End. Housed in a 1920s light industrial building, and designed by architects MRJ Rundell and Associates, White Cube Hoxton Square has 2000 square feet of uninterrupted exhibition space.

White Cube, Mason’s Yard opened in September 2006. It is located off Duke Street, St. James’s, home of the original White Cube gallery, on a site that was previously an electricity sub-station. Also designed by MRJ Rundell & Associates it is the first free-standing building to be built in the St James’s area for more than 30 years. The building houses a main, basement floor gallery which is a naturally lit, double-height space with a second gallery on street level providing 5000 ft² of exhibition space. White Cube, Mason’s Yard continues with an international, high profile programme of exhibitions and was launched with an inaugural exhibition by Gabriel Orozco.
