Éric Dupont

 Opened in January 1997, in the Marais, at the heart of Paris’ contemporary art gallery district, Eric Dupont Gallery has championed the work of emerging artists and participates on a regular basis in international art fairs including FIAC, Art Brussels, the Armory Show, Art Abu Dhabi and Scope Miami. In the fall of 2011, Eric Dupont will open a bigger, 270 square meter space, also located in the Marais at 138 rue du Temple.

Newcomers to the Gallery include Taysir Batniji and Fouad Bouchoucha. Taysir Batniji was part of the selection of Palestinian artists for the Venice Biennal in 2009. He has been selected to participate in the Twelfth Istanbul Biennial, curated by Adriano Pedrosa and Jens Hoffmann and opening in September 2011. Fouad Bouchoucha, a young artist born in Marseille in 1981, will have his first solo show at the gallery in 2012. He has been selected as a resident artist at the Palais Tokyo. Bouchoucha’s work involves performance, sound and installation. He is currently working with automotive firm Bugatti ‘s Veyron, the fastest car in the world, on a project about speed and mutation.

Recent exhibitions at the gallery include a tribute by Pascal Convert to the French resistance, through the character of Joseph Epstein. In March 2011, his movie about the famous French resistant Raymond Aubrac was shown on France 2. Jean-Louis Froment for La Force de l’Art, the triennial of art in France selected convert. His huge crystal sculpture of Joseph Epstein carrying his son was acquired by the Pompidou Centre collection. Last Fall, Convert participated in a prestigious exhibition about Aby Warburg, Atlas: How to Carry the World on One’s Back?. Curated by Georges Didi-Huberman at the Reina Sofia in Madrid, this exhibition moved last May to the ZKM in Karlsruhe and then it will move in September to the Sammlung Falckenberg in Hambourg.

After a great success at the FIAC, Yazid Oulab was chosen for the residency program of the Calder Workshop in 2009. His works were part of a major group show, Traces du Sacré, at the Pompidou Centre in 2008. Last winter, Yazid Oulab participated in an exhibition entitled, Tenir, debout, featuring renowned artists such as Louise Bourgeois, at the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Valenciennes. In 2012, the FRAC PACA (Marseille Regional Fund for Contemporary Art) will inaugurate its new buildings highlighting the work of the artist and the Abu Dhabi Louvre will do the same for the opening of its contemporary art space.

Damien Cabanes’ work was showcased in a major exhibition, Corps à corps, at the Claudine and Jean-Marc Salomon Foundation in 2009. This coming September, the Musée d’Art Moderne of Saint-Etienne will dedicate to him his first retrospective. He is also nominated for the Marcel Duchamp award in 2011.

Regina Virserius’ works were acquired by the Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage in 2007, and were shown in 2008 in the Gaspé Museum (Canada) and in the Rencontres d’Arles in 2009. In 2010, a series acquired by the FNAC (French National Contemporary Art Fund) was shown in the Photographie Biennial in Moscow and in 2011, she will have an exhibition at Musée des Arts et Métiers in Paris. A new book on her works, Una Cosa Mentale, has been presented at the Musée des Arts Décoratif on May 18th.

Clément Bagot had his first solo exhibition in 2010. Among his recent group shows include Collection 3 at the Claudine and Jean-Marc Salomon Foundation, at the Grainetterie in Houilles, with Rafael Zarka, and at the Ecole Nationale d'Architecture at La Villette, Paris.

Gil & Moti, the Dutch-Israeli performance duo, embarked in February 2011 on a year and a half-long tour that brings their works to several important European art centers and museums, including Kunsthallen Nikolaj in Copenhagen (Denmark), Kunstmuseum in Bochum (Germany), Tensta Konsthall in Stockholm (Sweden), Stavanger Kunstmuseum (Norway) and Lentos Kunstmuseeum in Linz (Austria). The Israeli-Palestine conflict is at the heart of a life’s work that aims to bridge and bring harmony to the two communities.

The Gallery has championed the work of Paul Pagk, Didier Mencoboni, Damien Cabanes, Siobhan Liddell for over fifteen years.
