Galerie Revel is a contemporary art gallery with the focus of giving visibility to artists historically invisibilised in the west. Founded in 2021, the France-based gallery collaborates with emerging, mid-career artists and designers whose work engages in conversations between the global south and the west - but not only - through key issues of our time: identity, gender, ecology, decolonial practices, post-colonial cultures, cultural appropriations, migration, among others.
Among the gallery's rising talents are emerging artists such as Zimbabwean ceramic sculptor Xanthe Somers, Nigerian textile artist Samuel Nnorom, ceramicist and art-activist Bisila Noha.
Galerie REVEL is interested in artists whose practice often oscillates between art and design with a strong link to the material, the process and the stories. The gallery's artists challenge the dominant Western canons by using mediums traditionally excluded from the Western view of the art world. Galerie REVEL does not respond to the European academic division/classification of disciplines separating visual arts, design, collectible design and craft, but rather embraces the possibility of a conversation between these disciplines within artistic practices.
Within a short period of time and from its inception, the gallery and some of its artists have been published in leading publications including: The Design Edit, The Art Newspaper, The Financial Times, Elle Decoration France, The Sunday Telegraph, World of Interiors, AD France, AD Italy, AD Spain, ENKI Magazine among others.
