For more than 35 years, Galerie Samuel Lallouz has played a notable role in the representation of the most innovative contemporary artists whether Canadian, American, or European. Founded in 1979 the gallery has never ceased to be a pioneer both in its choice of artists and in the freedom allowed to them.
Since the late 1970s Samuel Lallouz has chosen to exhibit American artists who initiated minimalist and conceptual art such as Richard Serra, Sol Lewitt, Lawrence Weiner. At the same time Samuel Lallouz was one of the early supporters and defenders of feminist artists: Joan Jonas, Carolee Schneemann and, more recently, Monika Weiss.
Today, the gallery reaffirms its transatlantic position, supporting and showing artists from two continents. It also continues its commitment to historical figures such as Karl Appel, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Joseph Beuys, Louise Bourgeois, Carolee Schneemann, John Erhard Walther. The gallery also maintains its fostering of current generations of artists: Janieta Eyre, Monika Weiss, Leiko Ikemura… and looks forward to doing the same for future generations.
In effect, Galerie Samuel Lallouz has always had a watchful eye on young creators; this is why it has created the GSL lab, a space where the artists of tomorrow appear and confront those of today.
