Spotlight on Innovation and Creativity
As a passionate collector of Modern and Contemporary Art and Design, in addition to our well-established auction business, I also place increasing efforts to make TAJAN a destination place for discovery and defense of art. At TAJAN ARTSTUDIO, we host innovative cultural events and bring together all those who create, defend and love art: artists, collectors, curators and gallerists.
As early as 2004, we initiated and hosted regularly at Tajan the program “The Artist and his Supporters”. This program brought together during unique events many of those creating, defending and promoting innovative art and design: artists, designers, curators, collectors, gallerists and journalists. This early program has now evolved and greatly developed leading to the creation of a separate entity and brand, Tajan ArtStudio. Through artist focused and thematic exhibitions presented several times a year, Tajan ArtStudio has now become a creative trendsetter. It is now a rich source to discover in Paris local and international new, emerging talent and rediscover overlooked or forgotten artistic movements and individual artists.
First semester, 2017 - Schedule
KARL HORST HÖDICKE, Ich Bin Ein Berliner - February, 2017
Tajan ArtStudio presents an exhibition entitled "Ich bin in Berliner".
Considered a precursor of neo-expressionism, Karl-Horst Hödicke is the “father” of the New Fauves, an artistic movement that participates in the revival of German art in the 1980s.
The history of the German capital was revealed throughout his work. Karl-Horst Hödicke is extremely attached to this city: "For me, the one who travels the world in search of a particular place, will inevitably land in Berlin. I think you can always see in the city what I have tried to show in my paintings ".
Second semester, 2016 - Schedule
OVER THE GOLDEN GATE, 1960-1990 - Exhibition October 20-28, 2016

In October, in parallel with FIAC, we have decided to host an important exhibition entitled “Over the Golden Gate, 1960-1990” wich will honor major artists active during this period in San Francisco and the Bay area.
