Pierre Courtin

Artist (France)

Pierre Courtin

Pierre Courtin was born in 1976 in Lille, France. He studied at the National School of Fine Arts of Paris. In 2003-2004, he was selected for the seminar entitled “Introduction to Exhibition” presided by Christian Bernard, director of the Mamco in Geneva. He is the award winner of the Foundation de France in 2005.

Pierre Courtin, an untypical character of an artistic protean commitment, defines himself as somebody acting on the stage of Art. He invests in this stage, he acts on it, he seduces its codes. Artist, art gallery manager, curator, collector but also iconoclast, do-it-yourselfer and amateur. In 2004, he created the Galerija10m2 in Sarajevo, in which he gives the opportunity to both regional and international artists to exhibit their works. 

Pierre Courtin has been working as curator and collector since 2004. He recently showed his collection in Canada and organised the first most representative collective exhibition of Bosnian art in Galerie du jour in Paris.
