Well before opening Geneva’s Ribordy Contemporary in 2010, Stéphane
Ribordy was already a passionate, prescient art collector. He brought that same
zeal to his gallery, and now to the Dallas Art Fair. It’s his first time in the city.
Ribordy is a true internationalist, representing artists from Switzerland, Sweden,
France, the U.S., and Canada. He’ll be showing the works of three or four of
his dozen artists. Look for Zak Kitnick’s multi-panel steel work American Ships,
Fusion (3/4 orchid, 1/4 modern apples, upper right), multi-media artist Davina Semo,
and the idiosyncratic photographs of Ryan Foerster—they’re all stimulating
company. “Most importantly a work of art needs to disturb your comfort zone
and constantly challenge you visually and intellectually,” Ribordy maintains,
and he’s looking forward to connecting with Dallas collectors and curators.
