31 PROJECT is dedicated to promoting African contemporary art scenes through multidisciplinary exhibitions of artists originating from the continent and its diasporas.

The gallery plays a dynamic role in these networks and this emerging market that are shifting the cartography of international contemporary art.

31 PROJECT was conceived on a flexible model, to respond as close as possible to the latest developments of African scenes and to demonstrate their vitality. Our vision unfolds with a series of exhibitions in our Parisian space and in art fairs, in France and abroad. 



Gallery owner Charles-Wesley Hourde, specialised in classical arts from Africa, Oceania and America, decided to join forces with Clémence Houdart, independent cultural sector consultant for visual arts, to create and develop a new independent branch of his business dedicated to contemporary art. Together, they founded 31 PROJECT.
