ParisJeune Création. A Support to Young Artists
60 Artists Selected By Jeune Création To Show Works At The Large-Scale Pantin Gallery Space In September 2020
All Sales Proceeds To Go Directly To The Artists And Their Galleries
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac dedicates its 2,000m2 exhibition space at the Paris Pantin gallery to an exhibition that supports young and emerging artists and galleries. The Ropac gallery’s infrastructure promotes the exhibition of 60 international artists selected to participate by the Jeune Création committee, to foster much-needed sales of their work at a critical time.
Thaddaeus Ropac comments, ‘This is an unprecedented time for so many, but within our art world community it is particularly challenging for the next generation of artists and young galleries. By offering our largest gallery space and our full infrastructure to present work by 60 young artists we can support those in our community who are most in need.’
Jérémy Chabaud, director of Jeune Création, states, ‘In this troubled period of health crisis, Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac and Jeune Création unite with vigour and reinforced solidarity to celebrate the 70th edition of Jeune Création and affirm their support to artists. Everyone will be invited to create, reflect and act together in favour of creative freedom.’

This is the third occasion that Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac has collaborated with Jeune Création.
