Founded in 2006 by Flore and Romain Degoul, Galerie Paris-Beijing is dedicated to contemporary world photography and comprises a 300 squared meters space in Beijing, at the heart of 798 Art District, and a 150 squared meters space in Paris.
The gallery represents artists whose original and conceptual creativity associates aesthetic considerations with technical mastery, from traditional photography to the new possibilities offered by digital processes.
An essential link between Paris, a capital of world photography, and Beijing, now an established art scene, the gallery's distinctive selection follows two simple objectives :
Passionate and vibrant, Galerie Paris-Beijing particularly supports rising artists with the ultimate goal to make them parts of important public and private collections; this is why, in addition to local exposure, Galerie Paris-Beijing publishes art books and catalogues on their behalf, as well as presenting them in the foremost international photography festivals and art fairs.
- To discover and promote internationally a new generation of rising and established Chinese photographers.
- To be a platform in China for acclaimed western photographers and to represent their works in a country where their names and works are little known or displayed.
Ultimately, the gallery bears witness to the richness of China's contemporary photography creation through its collection, and is pleased to offer its expertise to new as well as established collectors.
