Mitterrand + Cramer/ Design
Mitterrand + Cramer/ Design emerged in 2007 when Galerie Edward Mitterrand split into two separate entities after seven years of activity. Mitterrand + Sanz in Zurich now represents young Swiss artists and emerging to mid-career international artists through site specific projects. Mitterrand + Cramer in Geneva focuses on art advisory, related secondary market propositions and commissioning and exhibiting limited-edition design from a group of internationally recognized designers. The gallery's contribution to design began in 2008 following the exhibition Design A-Z, which regrouped existing works created by major contemporary designers. Edward Mitterrand and Stéphanie Cramer began to develop relationships with Studio Job, Tom Dixon and Studio Makkink & Bey, with the help of Swiss designers Philippe and Sophie Cramer. Today, after three strong solo exhibitions, partially or entirely produced by the gallery, Mitterrand + Cramer aims to become a major player in the field of limited-edition contemporary design through both its participation in fairs such as Design Miami and the production and exhibition of new series by the gallery designers. In 2010, the gallery will host exhibitions by Maarten Baas and Arik Lévy as well as two ambitious group shows on contemporary drawing and sculpture.
