On May 6, François Ceysson and Loïc Bénétière will open their fifth location and first gallery space in New York, at 956 Madison Avenue. Founded in Saint-Étienne in 2006, Ceysson & Bénétière has since expanded to Paris, Luxembourg, and Geneva. Keeping with tradition, an exhibition of works by Claude Viallat will inaugurate the space. (The dealers have opened all of their galleries with shows featuring the artist.)
According to a statement released by Ceysson & Bénétière, the move to New York was “a logical next step” for the dealers, who will organize shows featuring both established and emerging artists. Following “Claude Viallat: Major Works,” the space will mount exhibitions of Lauren Luloff, Patrick Saytour, Wallace Whitney, and Daniel Dezeuze.
