Mendes Wood DM announces the opening of its new gallery space in Paris
Mendes Wood DM was founded in So Paulo in 2010 by Felipe Dmab, Matthew Wood, and Pedro Mendes to exhibit international and Brazilian artists in a context conducive to critical dialogue and the cross-pollination of ideas.

NEW YORK, NY.- Mendes Wood DM announced the opening of a new gallery space in Paris in July, 2023. Located in the historic square of the Place des Vosges, in the 3rd arrondissement, the new gallery features 200 square meters of exhibition space across two floors of an iconic period building. Built in the early 17th century, Place des Vosges is the oldest planned square in Paris, and a destination on the cultural map of the French capital. Situated in the neighborhood of the Marais, Mendes Wood DM joins a number of prominent contemporary art galleries present in the area.

The ongoing renovation is being overseen by the Parisian architecture firm NeM / Niney et Marca Architectes (with Paul de Coudenhove), responsible for the transformation of the Bourse de Commerce, now the home of the Pinault Collection. The project aims to preserve all the original features of the space and to include new fittings that offer the opportunity to stage ambitious exhibitions with installations and multi-media screenings.

Pedro Mendes and Matthew Wood met in the city of Paris while studying Philosophy as undergraduates. They spent years in its galleries and museums and in the corridors of the Ecole des Beaux Arts. The ethos of the city would later inform the identity of the gallery that they founded together with Felipe Dmab in Brazil several years later.

"Paris is extraordinary. It is not only an ancient cosmopolitan center but also a crucible of culture which has fostered singular legacies of artistic innovation, patronage, and collection-building. Coming from So Paulo, we recognize the twentieth century history of artistic exchange between France and Brazil. We are very excited for this new chapter of the gallery, and hope to make a meaningful contribution to the city." – Carolyn Drake Kandiyoti, Partner.

The launch exhibition will be a group show curated by Fernanda Brenner, Founder and Artistic Director of the independent non-profit art space Piv in So Paulo and longtime collaborator with Mendes Wood DM. It will present a selection of artists from the gallery's program including household names from Brazil such as Lucas Arruda and Sonia Gomes and international artists like Matthew Lutz-Kinoy, alongside contributions from both historic and contemporary cultural practitioners.
