The founders of Parliament are driven by the desire to reexamine the function of the art gallery, by formulating new proposals to nourish the process of reception of works, and by giving visibility and voice to a new generation of French and international artists. Parliament wishes to build a space for the circulation of ideas and collective reflection through a programme that makes sense in the long term.
We wish to promote a strong practice, whether it be experimental practices carried out by a new generation of creators, or young French and international artists who are part of a more classical conceptual tradition in the history of art. Painting has been completely reinvented and we are keen to show it, to make it appear before its “paratext”. Paris, in a context dominated by the idea of “rupture”, and saturated by the phenomenon of competition from an offer that is not very diverse, represents in our eyes an ideal place to launch this gallery project: it seems to us that the time has come to reinvent ourselves collectively.
