Georges Bergès Launches Salon-Style Setting in SOHO Where Artists and Collectors Can Mingle
VIDEO: The dealer says it is all about making art and artists more accessible.
Georges Bergès has always looked at art with a global perspective. But also a human one.
His recently opened gallery at 462 West Broadway in SOHO bridges the gap between emerging international artists and collectors, and is only the first step in a larger international expansion.
In addition to representing artists in emerging markets around the world, Bergès still believes in maintaining a close relationship between the art and the artist. While it has become the norm for collectors never to meet the artist of the works they are interested in, Bergès’ ideology harkens back to what he believes to be the height of the New York city art scene in Soho during the 70s and 80s. To this end the Georges Bergès Gallery features a downstairs salon-style setting where his artists and collectors can actually mingle and interact.
At the root of this innovative vision and nostalgic philosophy is Bergès’ unique eye for talent, drawn to visceral, poetic work that projects a life of its own.
Opening his gallery to us in the heart of Soho, Bergès shares his vision for a global art network and his reverence for the golden age of art in this historic neighborhood.
