Welcome to La Galerie Nationale
La Galerie Nationale is a gallery specialized in Original Art furniture made by top designers representing the 20th century. The twentieth century, one of the most prolific periods in design, the birthplace of generations of extraordinary designers handling all the Art forms, mastering new material while still managing the feat of making them useful and usable. Few of these original items still exist. La Galerie Nationale is promoting these outstanding designers and offers these exceptional objects to collectors. With twenty years of experience in France and Europe, the gallery has a representative gallery in Dubai at Alserkal Avenue.
17 march - 27 april
La Galerie Nationale is pleased to announce its upcoming group show, to coincide with Art Week 2015. Entitled, ‘Art Pulse’, the show will feature both design objects and works on canvas from a selection of globally renowned artists including Ron Arad, Damien Hirst, Jean Prouve and Andy Warhol. As such, the group exhibition represents an exceptional opportunity to view and acquire works from designers and artists who are widely regarded as amongst the most important from the last century during what is fast becoming one of the world’s most exciting international Art events.
La Galerie National enjoys a status as an innovative space within the UAE that uses curatorial eye to deliberately push the status quo in the regional market. As such, Art Pulse’s guiding vision has been to emphasize and celebrate Dubai’s increasingly enhanced status on the international art circuit, as it moves beyond stereotyped themes and expectations. Deliberately international in content, Art Pulse presents a global perspective in a local context, challenging the viewer eyond accepted norms of a Dubai production.
The exhibition narrative plays closely into the journey Dubai has taken over the past decade, as it has carved out a niche as both a platform for Middle Eastern art, and increasingly, a meeting place between East and West for international collectors. Highlights include ‘Skull on Spin’; an oil on paper Diptych by Damien Hirst, ‘lobster’ print by Andy Warhol, a ‘Big Easy’ thermo form armchair by Ron Arad or a very rare set of six chairs by Jean Prouvé.
