Galerie Laurent GodinParis, France
The gallery was founded in 2005 by Laurent Godin. It is located in the heart of Le Marais in Paris, one block from the Centre Pompidou. Since 10 years the program focuses on emerging and established artists – the gallery currently represents 20 artists – working with different media and participating to the discussion and evolution of contemporary art debate with a particular attention to practices dealing with politics and socio-cultural content. Acclaimed solo shows by Peter Buggenhout, Gonzalo Lebrija, Haim Steinbach, Mika Rottenberg, Alan Vega– among others – have been held in the Marais space. But also several group shows gathering works by the artists of the gallery and other great international artists such as Eugène Leroy, Hans Josephson, John Armleder, Francis Picabia… In October 2015, the gallery celebrated its 10 year anniversary, opening a new space ; 500 square meters in the east of Paris. This second space is a new tool for new perspectives : As the space is located off the city center, it is an invitation to take time to re-think our relation to art works and gallery exhibitions, out of the « classical gallery track ». This gallery is a multi task / multi fonction project space were we are organizing group shows but also solo shows only twice or three times a year, events, talks…It is an ongoing project that aims to open to new perspectives for visitors and artists of the gallery. The 10 Year anniversary exhibition was the first group show gathering all the artists of the gallery and articulated into two parts from october 2015 to May 2016. After that, Claude Closky first (Spring 2016) then Wang Du (Fall-Winter 2016) presented two large solo shows.
