This small town symbolized the archetype of pastoral American life. Yet this idyllic place was also held hostage by a dark past, manifesting in the racial tensions that scar much of American history.
Committed both aside young talents and acknowledged artists, the Loo & Lou Gallery opened by Fondation Loo & Lou in June 2015 with two exhibition spaces : one in the Haut-Marais area and one near the Champs Elysées, avenue Georges V in Paris. In 2017, the gallery opened a new space, next to the Haut-Marais space. The Atelier will give a second life to the past exhibitions and artworks.
Those spaces give the Loo & Loo Gallery the perfect playground to confront different visions and offer different and experimental approaches of the works. It also launch dialogues in between different artists. The spaces also give a bigger flexibility for developing a conversation with the audience, the artists and independent curators.
The Loo & Lou Gallery spreads out its activity through an artistic direction open to every medium and nourished by various aspirations. Its program finds its cohesiveness in the choice of artists, often focused on the exploration of the living and inspired by the nature.
Among the numerous artists represented and exhibited include Paul de Pignol, François Borie, Aurélie Deguest, Pierre Delavie, Olivier De Sagazan, Johan Van Mullem, Dominique Lacloche, and Matthias Contzen
