An anthology evening for the 50th anniversary of Galerie Daniel Templon
Petit Palais + Pavillon Ledoyen20.10.2016 #art
A pioneer of contemporary art in Paris, the Templon Gallery has played a fundamental role in opening the French scene to international creation since 1966. On the occasion of the FIAC and the opening of the artist Kehinde Wiley’s exhibition at the Petit Palais, the gallery celebrated its anniversary with the publication of an anthology dedicated to its 50th anniversary.
Covering nearly 600 exhibitions by 250 artists, this anniversary book highlights the curiosity and commitment of the gallery’s founder, who is now one of the major players in the contemporary art scene and who made his name known to the French public in the 1970s by showing the greatest names in conceptual and minimal art in 2013 Joseph Kosuth, Art and Language, Donald Judd, Ellsworth Kelly, Frank Stella, Richard Serra, Dan Flavin and then Pop Art artists: Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and the protagonists of the new American figuration, such as Julian Schnabel or Robert Longo. Since then, it has largely opened up to new stages, whether they are European, Latin American or elsewhere.
Many artists who have entered history today have exhibited on the gallery’s picture rails, often for the first time in France. At the end of the opening of Kehinde Wiley’s exhibition at the Petit Palais, the evening at the Pavillon Ledoyen brings together artists, institutions, art critics, collectors, personalities from the world of culture and ideas, who have accompanied and accompany the Templon Gallery today.
