INAUGURAL EXHIBITION

THE WORLD MEETS HERE

THE WORLD MEETS HERE

To inaugurate Custot Gallery Dubai, the new gallery in the heart of Alserkal Avenue, the city’s hub for arts, Stéphane Custot presented a group show The World Meets Here.

 

The exhibition invited us on a journey that reflects Stéphane Custot’s personal taste as a respected connoisseur with 25 years of experience in Paris and London, focused on post-war masterworks and contemporary art.

The selection for the inaugural exhibition embodied the two cornerstones of the gallery, contemporary fine arts and large-scale sculpture. The unusual architecture of the new space gives these artists the opportunity to show these works at their best.

Stéphane Custot’s ambition is for it to be a showcase for international modern and contemporary art for Dubai and the surrounding region. He is proud to inspire and be inspired by this fast-growing artistic community.

Custot Gallery Dubai presented emblematic works surveying the best of international contemporary art with painstaking care and research invested in the exhibition’s design and presentation highlighting Stéphane Custot’s support for these artists.

Artists exhibited: Chu Teh-Chun, Ian Davenport, Nicolas de Staël, Barry Flanagan, Peter Halley, Robert Indiana, Jedd Novatt, Marc Quinn, Pablo Reinoso, James Rosenquist, Pierre Soulages, Frank Stella, Bernar Venet, Fabienne Verdier
