Christophe Guye Galerie
9 May 2012 Gallery Spotlight
From Zurich, Switzerland, we present the participation of Christophe Guye Galerie at Unseen. Founded
in 2006 in Los Angeles by the name of Scalo|Guye, Christophe Guye Galerie established itself in Zurich in 2010. Focused on contemporary art, the gallery fosters national as well as international artists who consider the medium of photography within the larger context
of contemporary art as whole. The gallery represents renowned artists such as
Michael Wolf (1954), Bill Henson (1955) and Peter Beard (1938), as well as younger talents including Stephen Gill (1971), Ina Jang (1982) and Esther Mathis (1985).
gallery's artists notably contribute to the art historical discourse and the
development within the photographic practice and contemporary art at large. Currently on display at the gallery is the exhibition Icons of Tomorrow until 2 June. The exhibition presents leading and
internationally acknowledged artists that have been of great influence and have
shaped the genre of contemporary fashion photography in recent years. These artists explore the boundaries between art and commerce and include Nick Knight (1958), Guy Bourdin (1928-1991, France),
Terry Richardson (1964) and Miles Aldridge (1964).
At Unseen, the Christophe Guye Galerie will present the work of the young artists Ina Jang (1982), Will Steacy (1980) and Esther Mathis (1985), as well as latest work by the famed Japanese artist Noritoshi Hirakawa (1960). All
very distinct and unique in style and approach, each of these artists perfectly
reflect the gallery's approach to supporting photographic art structured upon
an conceptual basis.
The Christophe Guye Galerie can be found on Dufourstrasse 31, in the Seefeld district in Zurich. The gallery is open from Monday to Friday from 10-6pm and Saturday from 11-4pm.
