A contemporary art gallery established in 1995, MARUANI MERCIER initially focused on American artists from the ‘80s. Now representing twenty artists, the gallery has maintained a long-term representation of influential artists such as Ross Bleckner, Francesco Clemente, Ron Gorchov, Peter Halley, Jonathan Lasker, and Sue Williams. Over the years, the gallery has developed its programme with well-known artists such as Tony Matelli, Gavin Turk and Arne Quinze, but is also eager to support emerging artists such as Jaclyn Conley, Justin Brice, and Esiri Erheriene-Essi, with a special focus on young artists from Ghana like Kwesi Botchway, Emmanuel Taku and Cornelius Annor. In addition, the gallery also represents several established Afro-American artists including Radcliffe Bailey, Lyle Ashton Harris, and Hank Willis Thomas. Along with supporting the production of their works, we aim to promote the artists by publishing catalogues and monographs, by participating in fairs, and above all, by helping with the organisation of important museum retrospectives. The gallery’s presence in Belgium, at the heart of Europe, by means of its multiple locations in Brussels, Knokke, as well as The Warehouse in Zaventem, has allowed it to hold simultaneous full-scale exhibitions.
