Origins - Governance

Governance adapted to the challenges, open and involving all stakeholders.

Benoit Doche de la Quintane

The Benoît Doche de Laquintane collection began in Bordeaux in the 2000s. This private collection gathers about a hundred works by French and international artists, some of which are on loan (deposit) to museums, including the CAPC museum of contemporary art in Bordeaux. The Benoît Doche de Laquintane collection is inspired by works related to poetry in its broadest sense. It wishes to articulate a relationship with the present time and to bring together works that resonate with contemporary times and are committed to the possibilities of a continually accelerating future. The collection invites the viewer to pause and reflect on the world around us and his or her position within it. Benoît Doche de Laquintane supports emerging and established artists from the international art scene. All artistic techniques and practices will be considered without exclusion.

In 2015, Benoît Doche de Laquintane also co-founded the DLD Endowment Fund with Anne-Sophie Dinant. The fund includes SOLARIS, an artist residency program dedicated to supporting creation. In parallel, the DLD fund develops a collection aimed at promoting emerging artists. The DLD Fund supports institutional exhibitions and specific projects of artists and young galleries.

Vincent Sator

A graduate in Political Science, History and Art History, Vincent Sator has worked in France, Switzerland and Hong Kong for public institutions and private galleries, such as the Musée National d'Art Moderne, the Direction des Musées de France, the Musée du Louvre, the HKU Museum or Blondeau & Cie in Geneva. From 2007 to 2010, he co-founded and co-directed the Blue Square Gallery on rue Debelleyme in Paris, specializing in contemporary Russian art.

Opened in 2011 in the Marais district of Paris, the Sator gallery focuses on the promotion of emerging or emerging international artists. The line of the gallery is defined in a referenced relationship of art to other artistic forms or creation of thought: politics, history, art history, literature, philosophy or science with the vocation to question the place of Man in the world, to offer a tool for reflection on contemporary societies, their evolution and mutation, their relationship to the territory.

In the fall of 2019, the Sator gallery joined Komunuma in Romainville. In this second space, on a one hundred and thirty square meter plateau, the gallery presents monographic exhibitions of its artists and defends specific curatorial projects.
