Gallery/Dealer Details - Guillaume Daeppen
GUILLAUME DAEPPEN | GALLERY FOR URBAN ART is located in the city of Basel, Switzerland. It shows emerging artists and exhibits works in a variety of media with an emphasis on works on paper, installations and photography.
Since 2006 the gallery focus on a generation of young artists working essentially with new medias. With the show BORN TO BE PUNK (2009) the gallery confirms his new direction and continues to develop his programm and to question the concepts White Cube, Street, Urban or Guerilla Art as well the relations between art, fashion, illustration, design, music, internet and photography.
Urban art is a style of art being inspired by urban architecture or urban life style.
Urban art represents a broader cross section of artists that as well as covering street artists working in formal gallery spaces also cover artists using more traditional media but with a subject matter that deals with contemporary urban culture and political issues.
Since 2006 the gallery focus on a generation of young artists working essentially with new medias and comprises Damien Comment (Swiss), Hilde Kentane (Belgian), Christophe Lambert (Swiss), Jean-Xavier Renaud (French) and Luca Schenardi (Swiss).
With the show BORN TO BE PUNK the gallery confirms his new direction and continues to develop his programm and to question the concept White Cube, Street, Urban or Guerilla Art as well the relation between art, fashion, graphic, design, internet and photography.
Actually GUILLAUME DAEPPEN presents about 6 exhibitions each year. It is not possible to react to new impulses in a short time. For this reason we have decided to split the gallery spaces in two different programs:
GALLERY FOR URBAN ART developing and coaching a programm of young artists on a long term basis
COUP DE COEUR # an off space for art | design | fashion | architecture open to new projects on a quarterly program basis
