Sept. 22, 2014 – San Francisco, CA. Jules Maeght, of the Fondation Maeght, Saint-Paul de Vence and Galerie Maeght, Paris, opens his first gallery in Hayes Valley, S.F on November 14, 2014 with the highly anticipated inaugural show “Art in Motion” including works by Pol BURY, Alexander CALDER, Marshall ELLIOTT, Vassily KANDINSKY, Kirstie MACLEOD, Joan MIRÓ, Clovis PRÉVOST, Tracey SNELLING and Kal SPELLETICH.

Inspired by the history of kinetic art in the  collection and the fact that the new gallery is housed in one of San Francisco’s legendary inventor and machine-maker Rube Goldberg’s studios on Gough Street in Hayes Valley, Art in Motion brings together works that explore kinetic art in diverse forms. To celebrate the opening of the new gallery and encapsulating its new program, European modernist will be shown alongside Bay-Area contemporary artists whose practice involves what Calder referred to as “art that lifts figures, colors and scenery off the canvas and proves that art is not rigid”.

Art in Motion, co-curated by Jules Maeght and Natasha Boas, showcases works including video, drawings, paintings, sculptures and photographs, that contain movement, either perceivable by the viewer or that depends on motion for effect. Ranging from three-dimensional sculptures such as Pol Bury’s “Vingt-cinq boules sur dix plans inclinés, 1965” (Twenty-five Balls on Ten Inclined Planes); San Francisco-based artist Kal Spelletich’s new series of poetic wooden machines “Locally Euclidean, 2014”; Oakland-based artist Tracey Snelling’s mixed-media tableau of the Golden Gate Bridge 2012, to Alexander Calder’s ink and gouches on paper from the early 1970s and Vassily Kandinsky’s drawings from 1926, Art in Motion encompasses a wide variety of overlapping techniques and styles from the 20th century through today.
ABOUT THE GALLERY

The original Galerie Maeght opened its doors in Paris on December 6, 1945 with an exhibition of drawings Henri Matisse had made during the war, and immediately became the epicenter for modernist artists and writers. Aimé Maeght, the gallery’s founder and a publisher of limited-edition artist books, began his art career in the South of France with his wife Marguerite.
The Maeghts had an unparalleled eye for quality, combined with a skill for nurturing and promoting new art and artists. These essential qualities secured their position as perhaps the most respected and influential advocates for art of their time. From 1946 onwards, such artists as Bonnard, Braque, Calder, Giacometti, Léger, Rouault among many others became part of the gallery.
Seminal exhibitions such as “Le Surréalisme” curated by André Breton and Marcel Duchamp in 1947 changed the course of art history and exhibition-making. In June 2014, the Maeght Foundation in St. Paul de Vence, founded by Marguerite and Aimé Maeght in 1964, and now entrusted to their son Adrien Maeght and his children, celebrated its 50th anniversary showcasing its world-renowned collection which includes some of the most important oeuvres of European Modernists.

Jules Maeght, Adrien’s son, a specialist of art editions and publications, opens his first gallery in San Francisco later in the same year 2014. Pioneering and exploring new vistas, Jules Maeght continues the Maeght family legacy of passion, adventure, and a commitment to artists and creative experimentation in the new Hayes Valley San Francisco gallery. Along with his partner and wife Amelie, the next Maeght generation will work to combine modernist artists alongside contemporary Bay-Area and international artists with provocative and engaging new exhibitions and programs.
