Parisian gallerist Kamel Mennour has always let his intuition guide him, forging his own path fueled by tenacity. After graduating in economics, for which he had an undoubted aptitude, but no true passion, Kamel Mennour opened his inaugural gallery in 1999, where he began by presenting several giants of photography, such as Araki, Roger Ballen, Larry Clark.
Nearly, 25 years later, Mennour manages four spaces and represents about forty living artists and artistic estates, from among the most significant in the field of modern and contemporary art, including Daniel Buren, Alicja Kwade, Ugo Rondinone, Camille Henrot, Lee Ufan, Anish Kapoor, Douglas Gordon, Mohamed Bourouissa, Huang Yong Ping, François Morellet… to some of the most promising, such as Ymane Chabi-Gara and Dhewadi Hadjab for instance.
Through its exhibitions, its projects developed in partnership with cultural institutions, its presence in major international art fairs, and its network of collaborators throughout the world, the gallery is present from Asia to the Americas, and from Africa to the Middle East. Today, it is one of the key actors in contemporary art and the art market.
