In this series, Éric Manigaud has turned his attention to the protests by Algerians that took place in Paris in October 1961 and which were violently repressed by the French police. Using photographs by Georges Azenstarck, Elie Kagan and Georges Méanger, and a film by Jacques Panijel, Éric Manigaud has worked to show one of the darkest chapters of recent French history.
Founded and directed by Vincent Sator to promote up-and-coming contemporary French and international artists, Galerie Sator opened its doors in the Marais in Paris in 2011. With masters degrees in Political Science and in Art History, Vincent Sator has worked in France and Hong Kong for public institutions such as the European Commission, the French Ministry of Culture, the Centre Georges Pompidou, the Musée du Louvre and the Hong Kong University Museum. Initiated into the art market by Marc Blondeau in Geneva, Switzerland, he founded his first gallery in Paris with American partners. Focused on Russian contemporary art, it remained open from 2007 to 2010. Vincent Sator relies on his knowledge of art history and his experience of international museums and cultural institutions to build his gallery. Connections to history and art history, politics and society are among the themes and the directions defended by the gallery, along with a questioning of the contemporary relation to images.
