MARUANI MERCIER is a contemporary art gallery established back in 1995, well-known for its long-term representation of several influential American artists from the 80s, such as Francesco Clemente, Ross Bleckner, Ron Gorchov, Peter Halley, Jonathan Lasker, and Sue Williams.
Over the years, the gallery has developed its program with Afro-American artists like Lyle Radcliffe Bailey, Esiri Erheriene-Essi, Lyle Ashton Harris, and Hank Willis Thomas.
We are also eager to represent emerging artists such as Manuel Mathieu, Jaclyn Conley, Justin Brice, and with a special focus on young artists from Ghana like Kwesi Botchway, Emmanuel Taku and Cornelius Annor.
Along with its support in the production of their works, we aim to promote the artists by publishing catalogues or monographic documents, by participating in fairs, and above all, by helping with the organization of important museum retrospectives.
MARUANI MERCIER is known for setting up museum quality shows, including for Hans Hartung in 2012, Andy Warhol in 2015, Alighiero Boetti in 2016, Le Corbusier in 2020, and Man Ray in 2021.
The gallery’s presence in Belgium, the heart of Europe, through its multiple locations in Brussels, Knokke, as well as The Warehouse in Zaventem, has allowed it to have simultaneous full-scale exhibitions.
