With just less than four weeks to go before Art Basel Hong Kong, the contemporary art fair at which the Galerie Nathalie Obadia Paris-Brussels will be taking part for the second year.
The Galerie Nathalie Obadia Paris-Brussels, which has been based in Paris for over 20 years, and in Brussels since 2008, is one of the first French international galleries to have blazed a trail of contemporary art between Paris and Brussels.
Many of the gallery’s artists appear on the exhibition programme of the most prestigious cultural institutions, including recent shows by Portugal’s Joana Vasconcelos at the Château de Versailles, India’s Rina Banerjee at the Musée Guimet, American Barry X Ball at the Ca’Rezzonico in Venice, Egyptian Youssef Nabil at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris and American Huma Bhabha at PS1 MoMA, while the first European retrospective of Lorna Simpson will be staged at the Jeu de Paume in June 2013.
At Art Basel Hong Kong, the Galerie Nathalie Obadia Paris – Brussels will be showing works by internationalartists such as the Chinese collective Xu Zhen by MadeIn Company, the two Indian artists Rina Banerjee and Mithu Sen, Youssef Nabil from Egypt, the Young British Artist Fiona Rae, Manuel Ocampo from the Philippines, Ramin Haerizadeh from Iran and Joana Vasconcelos from Portugal.
That being so, an article was published on 29 March 2013 in “Le Nouvel Economiste”, and two other articles about Madame Nathalie Obadia are due to be appearing in “Figaro Magazine” and “Challenges” in May.
They are commemorating 20 years of commitment to contemporary art, crowned by the recent successes of the Galerie Nathalie Obadia Paris-Brussels at the Armory Show (New York), Art Dubai, Art Paris and Art Brussels.
The articles also look at the opening of the gallery’s third space in Paris on 27 February 2013, and the resounding success of the exhibition Martin Barré, les années décisives, which opened on Thursday 4 April 2013 in Paris.
They likewise offer an incisive analysis of the contemporary art market as seen by the gallery’s founder, its position on the international market, and a portrait of Madame Nathalie Obadia.
