The gallery was founded 10 years ago in Sutton Lane, London, and established a permanent space in Paris in March 2007. In 2011, Campoli Presti expanded into larger premises in London, allowing the gallery to realize projects of a signi cant scale. The gallery first introduced a generation of US-based artists to Europe, cultivating their early exposure and establishing critical and institutional representation, bridging the artists’ practices with our european artists who share mutual critical concerns.
Campoli Presti’s program is focused on artists who explore the historical and material condition of their medium. Activating an ongoing conversation between European and American art around the conventions of pictorial, sculptural and photographic representation, the gallery’s artists bear a critical engagement with notions of authorship and the role of the artist.
Campoli Presti represents a number of artists whose work is part of esteemed public collections such as Le Centre Pompidou, Paris; Le Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; Tate Modern, London; Nationalgalerie, Berlin; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Guggenheim Museum, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art and Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
Periodically, Campoli Presti organizes exhibitions of historical gures who serve as critical references for contemporary practitioners, such as Marcel Broodthaers in collaboration with the Estate (January 2012, october 2008), Martin Barré in collaboration with the Estate (September 2005) and Pistoletto / Franz West (January 2004). The gallery participates regularly in international art fairs such as Art Basel, Art Basel Miami Beach, FIac and Frieze art Fair.
