The JGM. Galerie was created in 1988 and has immediately focused on sculpture. During the first ten years, the gallery gave priority to major artists of the “Nouveau Réalisme” like Niki de Saint Phalle, Jean Tinguely, Takis and Jean-Pierre Raynaud. At the same time, the gallery presented retrospective exhibitions of Agustin Cardenas and Hiquily or group exhibitions like The Sculpture and the Drawings with works of Giacometti, Picasso, Rodin, Tinguely, or for example the exhibition Irons that illustrates the use of this material by the greatest artists like Picasso, Gargallo, Chillida, Plensa or Stankiewicz. The JGM. Galerie has initiated numerous exhibitions of sculptures in France and abroad such as Niki de Saint Phalle (with the support of AFAA, French Foreign Office, at that time) in the major museums of the capitals of South America and at Luxembourg, the exhibition Alter Ego about women artists (Louise Bourgeois, Sophie Calle, Sherrie Levine…) and more recently the exhibition Keith Haring (2007) at the Fondation Independence. In Asia, especially in Taiwan, the JGM. Galerie, by ordering important sculptures, worked closely with Soto, Marta Pan, Takis, Pol Bury, and Tony Cragg, whose works are still installed in the city and in contact with the public. Recently, the JGM. Galerie has decided to find a new dynamic by engaging artists, who are on the one hand in line with its history like Keith Sonnier (scheduled for spring 2010 with an exhibition of historical artworks) and Anne and Patrick Poirier, and on the other hand define the new directions of the gallery, in order to take part more strongly in the actual time and expand its borders from the Balkans to China. Thus, Jean-François Fourtou joined the gallery in 2007 that wishes to support young French artists, he exhibits in October 2010. In addition, thanks to Ami Barak, curator and artistic adviser, the Romanian artist Ion Grigorescu was exhibited in 2008, furthermore the Albanian Edi Hila in January 2009 and an exhibition of Peter Kogler, an Austrian artist, was held in October 2009. Fred Wilson, reckoned afro-American artist, also exhibited in January 2010. Since 2007, with the opening of its Asian branch in Shanghai, the gallery confirms its choice of Chinese artists and its interest for new talents in Asia like Lin Tianmiao, Li Yongbin, planned for May 2010 and Sui Jianguo, for fall 2010. The desire to remain encouraged by our time, its artists and its challenges, the interest in different cultures and different ways of expression engage us to constantly renew our habits to ensure a future artistic policy.
