Apr 15, 2023 | 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM | SUPPORTING ARTISTS INTERNTIONALLY | A SPOTLIGHT ON CHICAGO AND PARIS
Panelists | Guillaume Désanges (Palais de Tokyo, Paris), Mariane Ibrahim (Mariane Ibrahim Gallery, Chicago, Paris, Mexico City), Paul Maheke (Visual artist, Villa Albertine resident in Chicago), Jérôme Poggi (Jérôme Poggi Gallery, Paris). Moderated by Armelle Malvoisin (Beaux Arts Magazine, Quotidien de l’Art).
Over the last decade the relationship between Paris and Chicago’s artistic scenes has continued to deepen thanks to support for artist exchanges through commercial galleries, museums, government-funded residencies and French collectors based in Chicago and Paris. Gallerists Jérôme Poggi (Jérôme Poggi Gallery) and Mariane Ibrahim (Mariane Ibrahim Gallery, Chicago, Paris, Mexico) and museum president Guillaume Désanges (Palais de Tokyo) will discuss different ways of supporting artists in an international career across gallery representation, institutional exposure and international collecting alongside artist Paul Maheke, current resident of Villa Albertine in Chicago. In addition, panelists will discuss the particular role Chicago plays in their individual and collective practices as art and culture professionals across the world.
This panel is presented in partnership with Villa Albertine, a new program of the French Cultural Services in the United States, offering tailor-made residencies for creators, thinkers and cultural professionals from around the world.
