MAGNIN-A is a contemporary art gallery founded in 2009 in Paris by André Magnin and directed by Philippe Boutté. They are acknowledged experts in Contemporary and Modern African Art. Sharp eyed for new talents, the MAGNIN-A gallery represents established and emerging artists. MAGNIN-A works with passion and determination for the promotion and the diffusion of its artists' work on the greatest Arts Fairs and International Exhibitions                            .

Independent curator since the late 1970's, André Magnin started working on non-western Contemporary Art in 1989 with the historic exhibition " Magiciens de la Terre" at the Centre Pompidou and at the Grande Halle de la Villette in Paris, exhibition for which he was co-curator. He then became the head of the C.A.A.C.-The Pigozzi Collection, the most important collection of African Contemporary Art. During 20 years he shared his life between Europe and Africa. In 1996 he met Philippe Boutté who became his closest collaborator.

MAGNIN-A is an aesthetic and political project, engaged in the promotion of African Contemporary artists. Other artists from various backgrounds have since joined them. The gallery enables them to access the contemporary art market and to integrate private and public collections. Among these artists: Joël Andrianomearisoa, Steve Bandoma, Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, Nathalie Boutté, Filipe Branquinho, Chéri Samba, Calixte Dakpogan, Jean Depara, Omar Victor Diop, John Goba, Romuald Hazoumé, Kiripi Katembo, Seydou Keïta, Houston Maludi, Abu Bakarr Mansaray, Vincent Michéa, JP Mika, Marcel Miracle, Moke, Ambroise Ngayimoko, J.D. 'Okhai Ojeikere, Ataa Oko, Mauro Pinto, Amadou Sanogo, Kura Shomali, Monsengo Shula, Malick Sidibé, Pathy Tshindele...

The gallery also offers its expertise in the curation and organisation of international exhibitions with the work of its artists in museums and international institutions. Many of these artists have taken part to international exhibitions such as the Venice Biennale and were exhibited in international institutions (Musée du Louvre, Paris; Fondation Cartier, Paris; The Art Institute of Chicago; the Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein ...)

The gallery also takes part to international art fairs (FIAC, Paris Photo Paris and Los Angeles, The Armory Show; 1:54 London, New-York and Marrakech; Art Brussels; Art Paris Art Fair; Investec Cape Town Art Fair; Untitled, Miami) and its artists are now part of reknown private and public collections in Africa, Europe and the United States.
