On the occasion of her 100th exhibition, the gallery Magda Danysz brings together artists exhibited through time. This event illustrates twenty years of experience full of beautiful discoveries, of emergent artists who are now internationally-renowned and a constant openness to new horizons.
Magda Danysz says the job of an art dealer is « to learn to make your own choices and follow the artists through time”. She adds « a choice is a thoughtful and considered thing. But above all, you have to fight for it.»
Today, Paris Forever goes back on the choices of the gallery through these hundred exhibitions. The exhibition is the occasion to contemplate in a amused way and with a lot of emotions the artists who have taken part in the huge adventure of Parisian gallery. Much more this exhibition affirms once again her artistic choices over the last years.
