Marie Gomis-Trezise

Curator & Creative Director

Best described as a serial talent scout, Curator & Creative Consultant Marie Gomis-Trezise created Galerie Number 8 to bring together predominantly but not exclusively photographers from the African diaspora, all of whom have an unflinching gaze and a desire to dismantle cultural and sexual barriers and constructs.
Of Senegalese descent herself, Marie was brought up in Marseille, is now living in Brussels after many years in Paris and London, mostly working in the music industry. In 2015, Marie’s return to an Africa that she had not visited since childhood awakened her desire to showcase a new wave of artists exploring identity, blackness and diversity both online and through shows in art fairs and festivals. Additionally by promoting their works through both editorials and brand collaboration.
