Contemporary Art Gallery
Painting – Sculpture – Drawing – Photo – Installation
Wilhelm Blais, then 20 years old, creates the “ICX” association, with his friend Arnaud Mathé, for the promotion of artists and the sale of works of art. In 2017, ten years later, after a master’s degree in the history of contemporary art and four years as an object and art furniture broker in the Village Notre Dame in Bordeaux, he founded his gallery.
The gallery owner is vice-president of Bordeaux Art Contemporain from 2018 to 2020, an association bringing together 40 cultural structures in Bordeaux – including the CAPC, the FRAC, the Museum of Fine Arts of Bordeaux and the Museum of Decorative Arts and Design – in the aims to promote contemporary art, raise public awareness and promote access to contemporary art.
The gallery invites you to come and discover a selection of contemporary artists. It participates in exhibitions and engages in national and international fairs. The choice of artists is born of a meeting and a common desire to enhance their artistic sensitivity. The collaboration between the gallery and the artists materializes as much by a sharing on the professional level as on the emotional level.
The gallery exclusively presents works by rising artists from the Bordeaux art scene.
