Solo Gallery is a global representation platform for artistic projects of internationally renowned architects. As a personal project of Christian Bourdais, a property developer and entrepreneur, and Eva Albarran, a contemporary art producer, Solo gallery follows a specific curatorial line, working with architects who show a singular need for expression using visual art. Solo gallery looks to bring to light the pieces of architects who display a truly artistic approach in their work.
Solo gallery is focused on an experimental aspect indispensable to some architects in their general architectural production and in their reflection on contemporary construction. These unusual pieces are rarely shown in the world of contemporary art and bear an intimate relationship to space and matter. Solo gallery is a Parisian gallery and an international platform where this alternative language can express itself. Solo gallery has also implemented an exterior programme that follows major contemporary art events.
“Solo is also an opportunity for new collectors and amateurs of architecture to take their first steps in contemporary art, by purchasing major artworks at reasonable prices.” Eva Albarran
Solo is the first contemporary art gallery to exhibit works of architects in their own right. Distinguishing itself from a traditional architecture gallery, it favours the experience of the artwork over its representation through drawings and models. Solo will therefore be able to bring back to life majorpieces produced specifically for Biennials, giving them a new visibility.
