Located on rue Charlot in the 3rd arrondissement in Paris, Galerie Chantal Crousel presents a selection of artists highly diverse in their national and cultural origins and mediums who together contribute to a universal visual language.Read More
Gallerist Chantal Crousel is the gallery’s eponymous founder, beginning her long relationship with art through an early purchase of a work by Man Ray. Establishing the gallery on rue Quincampoix in 1980, Crousel made the choice—being from Belgium herself—to represent artists from around the world.
From an early stage, Galerie Chantal Crousel came to host exhibitions of key international artists including Gilbert & George, Alighiero Boetti, Jenny Holzer, and Barbara Kruger. The gallery has hosted the first solo exhibitions in France of big names like Tony Cragg and Cindy Sherman. Galerie Chantal Crousel also held the only solo gallery exhibition of Israeli-French artist and sculptor Absalon in his lifetime: Cellules (1990). Other big names whose works have featured in the gallery over the years include Andy Warhol, Richard Prince, Sigmar Polke, Bruce McLean, Jeff Koons, and Richard Long.
Transitioning through several iterations, Galerie Chantal Crousel entered partnerships with Ghislaine Hussenot between 1983 and 1987, and with Ninon Roberlin between 1987 and 1993. After several years of independence in the 1990s—during which time Galerie Chantal Crousel first exhibited staple artists such as Gabriel Orozco, Melik Ohanian, and Rirkrit Tiravanija—Crousel’s son Niklas Svennung joined the gallery in 2000. He became a partner in 2004 and co-owner in 2012.
Since 2005, the gallery has been situated on rue Charlot, remaining steadfast in its commitment to an international artistic dialogue.
Galerie Chantal Crousel represents a large and diverse roster of both emerging and established international artists. Presenting a wide spectrum of nationalities and backgrounds and working across a variety of mediums, they are united in their questioning and confrontation of the established social space through new and innovative ideas.
Major international artists on the gallery’s roster—such as multimedia artist Mona Hatoum, Mexican visual artist Gabriel Orozco, and Cuban and American duo Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla—were given their first solo exhibitions in France at Galerie Chantal Crousel. Alongside its international contingent, which includes artists such as Wang Bing, Wolfgang Tillmans, Haegue Yang, and Danh Vo, the gallery works with French artists old and young, ranging from Douard to Jean-Luc Moulène.
In keeping with its international pedigree Galerie Chantal Crousel represents artists at major international art fairs including FOG Design+Art, San Francisco; ARCOmadrid; ART021 Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair; West Bund Art & Design, Shanghai; Frieze London and New York; FIAC, Paris; and Art Basel in Hong Kong, Miami Beach, and Basel. Most of the gallery’s artists now also have works in public and private collections across the globe. Svennung also sits on the general sector committee for FIAC.
