Our Gallery

Imane Farès chose to bring together artists from the Middle East and from the African continent so that her program has a direct reference to her own background and experience. Founded in 2010, the Imane Farès gallery is active at the junction of various worlds, with the ambition to reinforce connections with the international art world. The European context of her platform and movements to international art fairs allow these articulations. Five exhibitions per year create opportunities for new productions.

Every two years, Imane proposes a collective exhibition to introduce emerging artists. In a quest for originality and dynamism in art, the gallery presents artists with multidisciplinary and engaged practices.

Each exhibition at the gallery is accompanied by the publication of a newspaper, for which renowned art critics and curators are invited to write on the presented artists. They have included Simon Njami, Roxana Azimi, Cécile Bourne-Farrell, Julie Crenn, N’Goné Fall, Caroline Hancock, Bernard Marcadé, Brigitte Ollier, Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez, Rasha Salti, Eyal Sivan, Ala Younis, Akram Zaatari.
