“Icons” (working title) is an exhibition that delves into the notion of sacrality in our contemporary culture. Positioned between religious references and popular culture, the show aims to bring together artworks that thoughtfully challenge the concepts of worship, canonisation, and beliefs. The space will serve as a commercial gallery, providing a platform for me to further develop my curatorial practice from a commercial perspective. By economically supporting artists and fostering a space for creative exchange, Antoine aspires to create an environment that encourages artistic growth and appreciation.
Antoine is an independent Queer curator based in London focusing on supporting underrepresented artists. He will curate an exhibition that gradually fosters connections between artistic communities in both London and Switzerland. Antoine aims to promote diverse voices, creating a platform for dialogue and cultural exchange.
Antoine fosters creative engagement and exchange through exhibition-making. In 2021 and 2022, he organised three exhibitions in his house: “Domestic Limbo,” “Ecarlate,” and “A Line Made by Walking,” featuring more than 20 artists. Additionally, he curated an exhibition and public programme in collaboration with Gasworks London. In 2023, he curated exhibitions and events including “Saucisson” (Shtager&Shch), “Studio visit” (Hypha Studios). Upcoming exhibition: “Unfurnished” (The Bomb Factory Foundation), and “Nose Thumbing” (Kupfer Project). Alongside my curatorial practice, Antoine has also worked in several commercial galleries.
