 - Swear That You\'ll Play
Published on the occasion of the forty-year anniversary of Chantal Crousel Gallery, this extensive publication (more than 700 pages) traces the history of the gallery, a major actor on the contemporary art scene, in France and abroad.
Jure-moi de jouer reviews the history of all exhibitions showcased at the Chantal Crousel Gallery since 1980. It features a hundred page conversation between Philippe Vergne, Chantal Crousel and Niklas Svennung, and also includes two critical texts, by Patricia Falguières and Alexandre Costanzo, as well as a very wide selection visual archives. This publication shares the opportunity to highlight the strong relationship between the gallery and its artists.
Since it was established in 1980, Chantal Crousel Gallery has been revealing and accompanying the work of artists of highly diverse origin to the French and international art world of collectors and institutions.
These artists share in common the exploration and the translation into original expressions of the essential values that underlie contemporary society. Each of them draws from their particular cultural heritage to develop their direction and a visual language that is both powerful and universal. The majority of these artists are now present in the most important collections.
