Created 32 years ago by Éric Dupont, the gallery emerged in the early 1990’s in Paris, presenting young artists mostly preoccupied by formal research in pictorial expression, such as Damien Cabanes, Didier Mencoboni, Siobhan Liddell, Carlos Kusnir, Hyun Soo Choi, Eric Poitevin and Paul Pagk. The gallery started to diversify its collection in the mid 1990s, with artists like Romain Pellas or Musée Khômbol. The gallery’s dynamic evolution continues in the early 2000s with new artists coming, using various art media (painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video, performance) : Pascal Convert, Gil & Moti, Regina Virserius, Yazid Oulab and Taysir Batniji, who question topics such as memory and time, power of images, persistence of conflicts... In the 2010s, new international photographers joined the gallery: the American photographers Nicholas Nixon, the Canadian Michel Campeau, the French artist Mathieu Pernot who analyses our contemporary society and Claude Iverné and Jacqueline Salmon.

In 2011, the gallery moved to a new and luminous 200m2 space, in Le Marais, in the center of Paris. Always keen to seize a new eye, the gallery welcomed young women artists, such as Olympe Racana-Weiler, Tahmineh Monzavi, Wiame Haddad and Katarzyna Wiesiolek.

The Eric Dupont gallery broadens its aesthetics and presents artists from the African continent, driven by a desire to talk about their heritage, their culture and to get to grips with a part of Art History. This is the case of a new generation of artists: the Beninese painter Roméo Mivekannin, the Congolese artist Willys Kezi and the visual artist from South-Africa Senzeni Marasela. 

The gallery’s artists have been exhibiting in major European and International institutions. Among them: the MoMA (Nicholas Nixon, Forty Years of the Brown Sisters), the Centre Pompidou (Pascal Convert, Yazid Oulab, Taysir Batniji), the Musée d’art moderne de la ville de Paris (Damien Cabanes), the Venise Biennal (Guy Limone), the Tessaloniki Biennal (Taysir Batniji), the Dakar Biennale (Roméo Mivekannin and Willys Kezi) as well as the Rencontres de la Photographie in Arles (Mathieu Pernot, Wiame Haddad and Jacqueline Salmon).

Since its creation, the gallery has evolved holding on to its first artists while welcoming new generations. It supports various and new art forms, defending artists who share human values and an interest in a formalist aesthetics. In constant cross-cultural dialogue, the gallery often participates in major international events, as well as several art fairs (1-54, Paris Photo, Art Paris…).
