  • Description:

    In exclusivity Friedman & Vallois Gallery will present, famed European painter and sculptor Rachid Khimoune, next November 8th, 2012 until December 21st 2012.

    From a Berber background, Rachid Khimoune, grew up in Paris suburbs, in a housing project. His work is imbued of the dual cultural heritage he was born with.

    Khimoune delivers a message of wisdom and peace by presenting a recent series made of found materials and objects. Totems and masks, made during the past five years, evoke Africa and its traditions with humor, assembling disparate scraps of modern life and fusing them into a new identity playing with their initial definitions.

  • Galerie Downtown by François Laffanour Booth 30 at Pavilion of Art and Design

  • Nov 10, 2011 to Nov 14, 2011
  • Location: Park Avenue Armory
  • Description:

    The Galerie DOWNTOWN, which is present at all the
    major international art market events (TEFAF, Biennale
    des Antiquaires, DesignMiami/Basel, FIAC), will be taking
    part in the first Pavilion of Art and Design in New York,
    from 10 to 14 November 2011.


    Going against the grain, in the early 1980s, François
    Laffanour created the Galerie DOWNTOWN with a thoroughly avant-garde brief: the rehabilitation of 20th century architects’ furniture which had sunk into oblivion. For
    more than 30 years, François Laffanour has been tirelessly
    championing the work of two pionneers of 20th century
    Decorative Arts: Jean Prouvé and Charlotte Perriand
    (joint founder of the Union des Artists Modernes with Le
    Corbusier in 1929), as well as that of Serge Mouille and
    Isamu Noguchi.

    The gallery also holds the archives of the gallery owner
    Simon Steph, from 1956 to 1974 producer of the furniture
    of  Prouvé, Perriand, Mouille, Jouve and Noguchi.
    Essentially passionate about freedom, these postwar

  • Location: Friedman and Vallois Gallery

    L’exposition "Kota Ancestors" aura lieu à New York du 11 Mai au 11 Juin 2011. Bernard Dulon exposera à la galerie Friedman et Vallois vingt pièces rares d’art Kota un art africain. Le vernissage aura lieu le 12 Mai de 16 heures à 20 heures lors de la première édition de la foire AOA Tribal Art Fair - America Oceania Africas.

    Le Kota, est compris de nombreux groupes ethniques plus petits. Les membres du groupe Kota pratiquent l'adoration d'ancêtres qui est la base de leur art. C'est le cas au Gabon oriental, où la plupart des formes d'art sont connectées d'une manière ou d'une autre à la vénération des ancêtres ou aux reliques héréditaires.

    Les œuvres du Kota sont uniques en leur genre se caractérisent surtout de figures de reliquaires avec des têtes stylisées couvertes de cuivre. Le corps est le plus souvent d'une forme triangulaire simple supportant la tête. Ces figures, d'habitude plutôt petites, étaient placées dans des boîtes de fibres ou des paniers, appelés "Bwete".
