Paris, 23 September 2011, Art Media Agency (AMA).
Following the auction house’s creation in 2001 by Pierre Bergé, Pierre Bergé & Associés is now looking to slow down its French activity in order to benefit its antenna in Brussels.
The company will soon be leaving its offices on rue Drouot for a private hotel on avenue Iena. Its vice–president, Frédéric Chambre, explained to the media that there was one sole reason for this relocation: to have a bigger impact in both the modern and contemporary art and design sectors in Brussels. Nevertheless, the auction house wishes to finish its sales already planned at Drouot in 2011. Pierre–François Dayot, previously furniture expert at Sotheby’s, will handle the French clientele.
Pierre Bergé & Associés moved to 12 rue Drouot in 2002 and organises several auctions every month in various specialities, including modern and contemporary art; art deco and design; tribal art; books; jewellery; photography and much more.
