bienvenue art fair
José Manuel Egea
Bienvenue is a new independent art fair in Paris that is dedicated to promoting, exploring and enriching the contemporary art scene.
The first edition of the Bienvenue art fair presents 25 hand-picked galleries at the Cité Internationale des Arts, rue de l’Hôtel de Ville (75004) from Tuesday 16 to Saturday 27 October 2018.
15 new works by José Manuel Egea will be presented there, some of which were exhibited in the 7th Biennial of Contemporary Art in Madrid in 2018.
Convinced of his magical ability to become a wolf, this young artist from Madrid is fascinated by the Kafkaesque metamorphosis found in the world of comics and mythology. As polymorphic as he is, his work consists of drawings, sculptures and performances, and urges us to accept our own repressed gifts for shape-shifting. Promoted by the gallery since 2016, he had a major show that same year by the Biennale de l’image possible in Liège, Belgium. In 2022, his work was featured in the exhibition Photo | Brut #2 at the Botanique in Brussels. His work is now part of several major European collections of contemporary art such as those of Antoine de Galbert, or Laurent Dumas.
