Created thirty years ago by Eric Dupont, 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 formalist aesthetics. In constant cross-cultural dialogue, the gallery often participates in major international events and art fairs.
Galerie Eric Dupont presents artists from across the African continent who are driven by a desire to talk about their heritage, culture and confront art histories. This is the case of a new generation of artists: the Beninese painter Roméo Mivekannin and the Congolese artist Willys Kezi. The gallery also accompanies artists whose heritage is linked to French colonial history and creating works that denounce the discriminatory consequences they suffer, such as the photographer Wiame Haddad and the visual artist Yazid Oulab.
