The Galerie Christophe Gaillard is pleased to announce that it is representing Irish artist Brian Maguire and is holding the artist’s first solo exhibition in France.
Brian Maguire (1951) is a militant artist. He roams the world, focusing on disenfranchised and marginalised men and women, the victims of global capitalism, deadly wars and trafficking. His political awareness finds its origins in the civil rights movement in which he took part in Northern Ireland. For him, painting is an act of solidarity, the fruit of a practice that consists of “meeting, questioning, listening, understanding and passing on the story”.
