Created in 1991 by Eric Dupont, the gallery presents young artists concerned with formal research in the field of pictorial expression, such as Damien Cabanes, Didier Mencoboni, Siobhan Liddell, Carlos Kusnir, Hyun Soo Choi, Eric Poitevin and Paul Pagk.
The evolution of the gallery continued in the early 2000s with the arrival of new artists questioning the notions of memory and time, the power of the image, the persistence of conflicts: Pascal Convert, Gil & Moti, Regina Virserius, Yazid Oulab and Taysir Batniji.
In the 2010s, international photographers joined her: Nicholas Nixon, Michel Campeau, Mathieu Pernot as well as Claude Iverné and Jacqueline Salmon.
In 2011, the gallery moved to a 200 m2 space in the Marais. Always eager to capture a fresh perspective, the Eric Dupont Gallery welcomes new artists, such as Olympe Racana-Weiler, Tahmineh Monzavi, Wiame Haddad and Katarzyna Wiesiolek.
The Eric Dupont Gallery is broadening its focus to include artists from the African continent who are driven by a desire to talk about their heritage, their culture and to reclaim a piece of art history, such as Beninese artist Roméo Mivekannin, Congolese artist Willys Kezi and South African artist Senzeni Marasela.
The gallery's artists have exhibited in major international institutions, including MoMA (Nicholas Nixon), the Centre Pompidou (Pascal Convert, Yazid Oulab, Taysir Batniji), the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris (Damien Cabanes), the Tessaloniki Biennial (Taysir Batniji), the Venice Biennial (Guy Limone), the Berlin Biennial (Taysir Batniji and Mathieu Pernot), the Dakar Biennial (Roméo Mivekannin and Willys Kezi), as well as the Rencontres de la Photographies d'Arles (Mathieu Pernot, Wiame Haddad, Jacqueline Salmon)
Since its creation, the gallery has grown with its first artists while hosting new generations. It welcomes a variety of media and champions artists who share human values and an interest in form. Thanks to a constant intercultural dialogue, the gallery regularly participates in major international events and fairs (1-54 London, Paris Photo, Art Paris, Drawing Now, etc.).
