Galerie Perrotin / 25 years
Continuing in its series of invitations to large collections, lille3000 has invited the Galerie Perrotin to take over the spaces of the Tripostal in Lille.
This exhibition will be an opportunity to take stock of French art dealer Emmanuel Perrotin’s vision of art and the world today, through a selection of works by artists he has exhibited in the course of his 25-year career.
The large open spaces of the Tripostal will accommodate more than one hundred works:?sculptures and monumental installations by Wim Delvoye, Daniel Firman, Gianni Motti and Tatiana Trouvé, mobiles by Lionel Estève, “Vingt ans après” (Twenty years after) by Sophie Calle, the famous “INRI” by Maurizio Cattelan and works specially designed for the venue by Gelitin, ?Guy Limone, Pieter Vermeersch and JR.
Other rooms will feature works by Japanese artists such as Aya Takano, Mr and Chiho Aoshima.
Many French artists will be represented, including Bernard Frize, Kolkoz, Ange Leccia, Jean-Michel Othoniel, Philippe Parreno, Claude Rutault, Xavier Veilhan and Jean-Luc Vilmouth. Visitors will also discover two sculptures by the Scandinavian artists Elmgreen & Dragset as well as a film by Jesper Just projected onto a large screen.
— Born in 1968, Emmanuel Perrotin opened his first gallery in Paris
in 1989 in an apartment in the Marais district of Paris, near the Pompidou Centre. After having occupied several places from 1989 to 2005, the gallery is now housed in a mansion in the Rue de Turenne. In 2012, he opened a second gallery in ?Hong Kong. A third was opened in September in New York.
He got his start in the contemporary art world at the young age of 17, when he became the assistant of the young dealer Charles Cartwright, who was already working with artists such as Marina Abramovic or Alighero Boetti. Passionate and self-taught, Emmanuel Perrotin proved to have an eye for talent. In 1991, he organised the first ever commercial exhibition of Damien Hirst’s work, then in 1992 presented the subversive Maurizio Cattelan; the following year, he began his collaboration with Takashi Murakami. Since then he has exhibited, among others, Johan Creten, Klara Kristalova, KAWS, Farhad Moshiri and Paola Pivi. —
