The Galerie Mitterrand is pleased to host Claude Lalanne´s first solo exhibition. This will be followed by a separate exhibition of François-Xavier Lalanne´s work. By exhibiting the artists´ work separately for the first time, the Galerie Mitterrand aims to emphasize each artist´s individuality, and celebrates the extraordinary relationship between Les Lalannes and Jean-Gabriel Mitterrand, a friendship that stems back to the creation of his gallery 30 years ago.
Galerie Mitterrand (previously known as JGM Galerie) was founded in 1988 by Jean-Gabriel Mitterrand and encompasses two large spaces in a privately owned townhouse in Paris’ Marais district. For the past 30 years, it has predominantly showcased sculpture. Today, this special affinity for sculpture leads to exhibitions of works by established artists such as Keith Sonnier, Fred Wilson, les Lalanne, Peter Kogler, Tony Oursler, Allan McCollum, and Niki de Saint Phalle, as well as by young, emerging artists such as the Chapuisat brothers, Mark Handforth, Jonah Freeman & Justin Lowe, Gary Webb, Rachel Feinstein. Over the years, the galerie Mitterrand has indeed developed profound expertise in the field of monumental sculpture. This has been manifested around the world through exhibitions in public spaces and, occasionally, in museums.
