Luc Clément
Luc Clément acquired extensive experience in communication at major groups (Havas, Publicis) and independent structures before forming his own agency in Nice. An expert in brand name history, he possesses solid skills in the world of creation. In 2001, he founded ‘Le Dojo’, an experimental contemporary art space where he collaborated with numerous artists and musicians on in situ projects, throwing bridges and prompting interactions between the artistic sphere and private business. These collaborations put the spotlight on various original artists such as Céleste Boursier Mougenot, Matthieu Mercier, Nicolas Moulin, Vincent Epplay and, in association with Arnaud Maguet, performances by Jac Berrocal, Xavier Boussiron, Lee Ranaldo, Aki Onda and many more. He is now Associate Editor and Head of Publication for the magazines Marie Claire and Marie Claire Maison Méditerranée.
