    Galerie Mitterrand was founded in 1988 by Jean-Gabriel Mitterrand and is currently located in a townhouse in Paris’ Marais district. Originally dedicated to showcasing contemporary sculpture, the gallery progressively widened the scope of its program and focused on exhibiting historically significant artists who began making art from the 1960s onwards.

    Since its creation, Galerie Mitterrand served as a platform for international artists in France. The gallery fostered appreciation for the work of Edi Hila, Allan McCollum, Niki de Saint Phalle, Tony Oursler, Anne and Patrick Poirier, to name but a few, and supported many others. The gallery also collaborates actively with the estates of Carlos Cruz-Diez, Dennis Oppenheim, Marta Pan, Francisco Sobrino, and Keith Sonnier to shed new perspectives on celebrated bodies of work.

    Galerie Mitterrand always was interested in promoting artworks deemed essential to our understanding of contemporary art. Reflecting on the rich complexity of the 21st century creative processes, the artistic programme recently expanded to a younger, more diverse, group of artists, making virtue of a dynamic intergenerational dialogue to address the many differences of a connected yet fractious world.

    In 2021, a new chapter of collaborations opened with the representations of Raphaël Zarka, My-Lan Hoang-Thuy, Wallen Mapondera and Mamali Shafahi.
