Eva Hober, founder of her eponymous gallery, monart’s
An influential gallery owner on the Parisian scene, Eva Hober, has been an integral part of the historic art and business district, the Triangle d’or, since 2017. In 2004, she founded a gallery in her name, located in le Marais, Paris. After two years at the Pace Gallery in New York, she began to work as a promotor of emerging and promising artists, including Clément Cogitore, Pauline Bastard, Axel Pahlavi, Anne Brégeaut, Jennyfer Grassi, and Audrey Nervi, and has been in this field for the past 15 years. As the curator at the French Institute, she organized the exhibition “La belle peinture” which was chosen by L’Oeil as one of the 50 best exhibitions from the 55’s to today. Now responsible for building her first monart collection, Eva Hober will begin her search for rising artists at Art Basel 2019 and then explore potential partnerships with institutions to support exhibitions and emerging artists. At the Kunsthaus in Basel, monart supports the artistic production and solo exhibition of Clément Cogitore. “Eva Hober will help us build a high-quality art collection and further develop our investment platform,” concludes Pauline Houl, monart’s Co-Founder, based in Bejing.
