31 PROJECT is dedicated to promote African contemporary art scenes through multidisciplinary exhibitions of artists originating from the continent and its diasporas.
31 PROJECT is a dynamic player in these networks and this emerging market that are shifting the cartography of international contemporary art. A gallery conceived on a flexible model, to react as close as possible to the actuality of African scenes and to give an account of their vitality. A vision that unfolds with a series of exhibitions in our Parisian space and in art fairs, in France and abroad.
BEHIND THE PROJECT
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.
