“History of art is a history of great things neglected and ignored and mediocre things being admired. At different times things are different. The history of photography is a history of changes.” –Saul Leiter (more…)
Christophe Guye Galerie is a contemporary art gallery, representing national and international artists who consider the medium of photography within the larger context of current art practices. First and foremost conceptual artists who choose to express their vision through the use of a camera or light sensitive materials, the works of these emerging talents, as well as mid-career and established artists, notably contribute to the historical discourse of art, as well as to the expanding medium of photography and to the evolution of contemporary art at large.
Founded by Christophe Guye in 2006 – former SCALO|GUYE Gallery – in Los Angeles, the gallery moved to its current location in Zurich, Switzerland in 2010. With five to seven shows per year, the program varies between solo and group exhibitions that include works by gallery as well as guest artists and are occasionally organized by invited curators. In addition, the gallery embraces the long-term counseling of collections and the fostering of new collectors, as well as the curating and organizing of exhibitions in collaboration with institutions, museums, and partner galleries. The gallery participates in Paris Photo, Photo London and Unseen Amsterdam.
Moreover, the gallery offers limited edition art books from independent publishing houses such as Amana and FOIL, Tokyo as well as Mörel Books and Nobody Publishing, London, among others.
