Mark Hachem gallery


In 1996, Mark Hachem opened his first Contemporary Art gallery in the heart of Le Marais. A second gallery followed 11 years later, when Mark Hachem inaugurated his Madison Avenue location in New York.

The latest addition of Mark Hachem Gallery opened in June 2010 in Beirut focused on the Middle Eastern Artists such as Helen Khal, Hussein Madi, Fatima El Hajj, Ahmad Moualla and Hamed Abdalla.

Over the past two decades, the gallery has captured prestigious artists and instantly distinguished itself from other Parisian galleries by its interest in Kinetic Art. Mark Hachem has exhibited prestigious artists of the Op Art movement, such as Vaserely, Jesus- Rafael Soto, Cruz Diez, Antonio Asis, Dario Perez Flores and Cesar Andrade.

However, Mark Hachem’s passion for art spans a wide array of currents and styles.
The gallery has shown Cubist and Neo- Expressionist works, and art from Ecole de Nice, amongst others. Notable artists whose works have been on show at the gallery include Pablo Picasso, Arman, Cesar, Christo, Polles, Fernando Botero, Roberto Matta, Wifredo Lam, Philippe Hiquily and Marino Di Teana.

An ardent defender of Contemporary Art, Mark Hachem is also an advisor to public institutions and private collectors. He is a member of the French Association of art galleries. Mark Hachem Gallery has not only exhibited but helped launch many contemporary artists, both Middle Eastern and International, like Hussein Madi, Ghazi Baker, Nedim Kufi, Nazar Yahya, Sara Shamma, Zeina Assi, George Merheb, Charles Khoury, Raffi Yedalian, Paul Gossian, Bastiani, Stiller, Yves Hayat, Victor Ekpuk, Thomas Agrinier, Mathias Schmidt, Stephen Peirce, Shawn Smith, and many others.
