As a part of Brussels Art Days – 11 to 13 September – Daniel Templon gallery will host Mumbai-based Atul Dodiya artist and his Mahatma and the Masters exhibition. Founded in 1966, the Paris-based gallery now occupies three spaces: two in Paris and one in Brussels. With a strong history of recognised artists, the gallery now represents a group of 30 international artists. The programme promotes a open dialogue between generations: established, mid-career artists and cutting edge artists. Daniel Templon provides curatorial expertise and assistance in the mounting of exhibitions of represented artists for museums and international exhibitions. The gallery is committed to a strong editorial policy when it comes to publication and catalogues.
