Since it was founded by Bernard and Gwenolée Zürcher in 1992, Galerie Zürcher has chosen emerging artists in France and abroad with whom it maintains long relationships. These choices indicate a predilection for the visual arts (painting, photography, video) as well as a lively interest in sculpture and installations. 15 years after the creation of Galerie Zürcher in Paris, Bernard and Gwénolée Zürcher decided to pursue the gallery’s action by opening Zürcher studio in New York. The decision to open Zürcher studio confirms their willingness to foster close relationships with their artists on the long-term and springs from the desire to have a more permanent presence in the US as well as promoting dynamic exchanges between the two cities.
Bernard Zürcher is an art historian, author of several works on modern art, in particular about Georges Braque (L’Office du Livre, Fribourg & Rizzoli, New York) and Les Fauves (Hazan, Paris). Vice-president of the Congres interprofessionnel de l’art contemporain (CIPAC) and a member of the Art Galleries Committee (CPGA), he is also one of the founders of the Contemporary Art Centre on the H.E.C. campus as well as L’Entrée, the contemporary art space of Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche. He also recently created an international contemporary art prize for the Hôtel Le Meurice in Paris.
Gwénolée Zürcher, expert in Asian Art has translated several books on art (Degas, by Denys Sutton; New York 1945 — 1965, L’Office du Livre).
