The exhibition Expansion-Résonance constitutes the inauguration of the Galerie Jeanne-Bucher’s new space in the historical and innovative neighborhood of the Marais. This new space’s name assimilates the two identities of its history – the identity of Jeanne Bucher its founder the identity of Jean-François Jaeger its director since 1947 and finally, the identity of its current Director Véronique Jaeger.

This exhibition gathers around questions of space and time, in a dialogue with some of the tutelary artists of Jeanne Bucher’s gallery like Maya, Sepik, Olmec and Dogoon sculptures, as well as pieces by Giacometti, Kandinsky, Klee, Léger, Masson, Mirò, Ernst, Tobey, Bissière, Staël, Vieira da Silva, Szenes and Dubuffet, through one selected work by each artist, the works of nine artists, who will be exhibited in 2009 and 2010 at the gallery: Michael Biberstein, Zarina Hashmi, Rui Moreira, Hanns Schimansky, Susumu Shingu, Pat steir, Fabienne Verdier, Paul Wallach, Yang Jiechang.
