In May 2018, Galerie Templon will open a second space on rue du Grenier Saint Lazare. To celebrate this new 600 square meter space, the gallery is giving carte blanche to famous choregrapher, performer, and visual artist Jan Fabre. Mixing drawing, sculpture and performance, Jan Fabre draws a multilayered, tongue in cheek, subversive portrait of himself as a “Belgian artist.” Around the corner, on rue Beaubourg, in the now historic space, Galerie Templon will present for the first time a spectacular solo show of American painter Robert Motherwell (1915-1991), one of the masters of Abstract Expressionism.
Daniel Templon was only 21 when he founded his gallery in 1966 on rue Bonaparte in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. In 1972, the gallery moved to its current location on rue Beaubourg, just a five minute walk from the Centre Pompidou, which opened in 1977. Daniel Templon was one of the pioneers of contemporary art in Paris and began by exhibiting many conceptual and minimal artists, including Donald Judd, Art&Language, Dan Flavin, and Frank Stella. Many now iconic artists have been represented by the gallery: Andre, Basquiat, Boltanski, Buren, César, Clemente, Immendorff, Flavin, Kelly, Lichtenstein, Rauschenberg, Schnabel, Stella, and Warhol, among many others. Today, the exhibition program creates a dialogue between established artists (Anthony Caro, Jim Dine, Claude Viallat), and the experiences of younger artists (Jonathan Meese, Chiharu Shiota, Kehinde Wiley). The gallery has two spaces in Paris and one in Brussels and is opening an additional space in May 2018 at 28 rue du Grenier Saint-Lazare, 75003 Paris.
