DESCRIPTION

Albert Baronian opened his first gallery in 1973 and immediately enjoyed international success thanks to the presentation of Arte Povera artists Alighiero e Boetti, Mario Merz, Giulio Paolini, Gilberto Zorio.

Later, as president of the Gallery's Association, the Brussels Art fair took a more international turn whilst under his direction.

Edmond Francey began his career more than ten years ago at Yvon Lambert gallery in Paris. From 1997 to 2001, he worked for the Waddington Galleries and as Director at Helly Nahmad in London. There, he organised major shows such as "Picasso, Artist of the century" and "Joan Miro a retrospective". He also worked closely with Young British Artist for the organisation of Contemporary shows.

Their knowledge of the main artistic movements combined with their experience as dealers has led them to open a gallery in Brussels in March 2002.

They see the responsibility of the gallery as three fold; to work for the long term development of each artists career, acting as a liaison to international galleries and museums as well as placing works in collections; to create an historical archive for each artist; and to act as an accessible public space in which the exhibitions become an exemplary gesture of the power of subjectivity to the audience at large.

The program is dedicated to contemporary art as well as important artistic movements and artists that have defined the last fourty years.
