After the launch of these spaces in Abidjan in Côte d’Ivoire in 2012 and Dakar in Senegal in 2018, the Cécile Fakhoury Gallery joins the prestigious Avenue Matignon as do the Galeristes Emmanuel Perrotin, Mariane Ibrahim and Nathalie Obadia

This third space, which will open on October 21, 2021, is the first outside the African continent, and offers the opportunity to proceed with its commitments to artists, but also to write its part of contemporary history of Africa and its diaspora through a new topography, between Abidjan, Dakar and Paris.

The Galerie Cécile Fakhoury also offers visibility to innovation and variety in African contemporary art through its solo and group exhibition program, but also through its investment in fairs and biennials and through its coordinated efforts with other foreign galleries. A natural continuation of its desire to praise the prolific flow of creativity.

It represents artists who distinguish themselves by a plastic language that frees itself from borders and rejects geological denigration. The variety of their creations focused on mastering the subtleties of history constantly pushes us to re-evaluate our relationship to the world.

For its first exhibition at 29 Avenue Matignon, the Galerie Cécile Fakhoury in Paris will be the setting for a discourse between unpublished works by Ivorian artists Ouattara Watts, Jems Koko Bi, Aboudia and Senegalese Kassou Seydou, an interesting prologue to the variety of taste and reasonable sumptuousness.

The Cécile Fakhoury Gallery also represents the artists : Mariam Abouzid Souali, Jess Atieno, Armand Boua, Dalila Dalléas Bouzar, Binta Diaw, Adji Dieye, Serigne Ibrahima Dieye, Dimitri Fagbohoun, Rahima Gambo, François-Xavier Gbré, Yo-Yo Gonthier, Carl-Edouard Keïta, Elladj Lincy Deloumeaux, Marie-Claire Messouma Manlanbien, Vincent Michéa, Roméo Mivekannin, Cheikh Ndiaye, Sadikou Oukpedjo, Paul Sika and Bamouin Sinzé.
