PARIS.- On October 20, 2010 Gagosian will inaugurate a new gallery in Paris.

Gagosian Gallery of Paris is located in the 8th arrondissement, between Avenue Matignon and the Champs Elysees, in what is known as the ‘triangle d’or’.

Occupying 900 square meters on four levels, it has over 350 square meters dedicated to public exhibition space on two floors. The second floor will be used as a ‘project space’ where special exhibitions and collaborative projects will be presented. One of the gallery’s outstanding features is its’ rectangular main gallery measuring 12 meters by 9 meters with circa 5 meters height and a skylight of 6.50 by 3.50 meters.

The gallery was designed by the Paris based architect Jean-Francois Bodin in collaboration with the London based practice Caruso St. John. The renovation of the former hotel particulier has transformed the space into a state-of-the-art contemporary gallery while retaining its distinctive Parisian character.

Larry Gagosian comments: “I love the city of Paris and am delighted to be opening a gallery here. It is an historical capital of art and is reclaiming its position within the international art circuit through its high quality museum exhibitions and a growing art market.”

Opened in 1979 in Los Angeles by Larry Gagosian, Gagosian Gallery is considered as one of the world’s foremost modern and contemporary art galleries. With the addition of the Paris gallery, there are now nine galleries worldwide, including three in New York, one in Beverly Hills, two in London, one in Rome and one in Athens. Architects of the other galleries include Richard Gluckman (New York), Richard Meier (Beverly Hills), and Caruso St John (London).

Gagosian Gallery has organized important exhibitions by leading international artists including Francis Bacon, Joseph Beuys, Georg Baselitz, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Alighiero e Boetti, Konstantin Brancusi, Cecily Brown, Walter De Maria, Alberto Giacometti, Douglas Gordon, Arshile Gorky, Marc Grotjahn, Richard Hamilton, Damien Hirst, Howard Hodgkin, Edward Hopper, Mike Kelley, Anselm Kiefer, Yves Klein, Willem de Kooning, Jeff Koons, Roy Lichtenstein, Mario Merz, Claude Monet, Pino Pascali, Pablo Picasso, Richard Prince, Anselm Reyle, Peter Paul Reubens, Ed Ruscha, Jenny Saville, Richard Serra, David Smith, Philip Taaffe, Robert Therrien, Cy Twombly, Piotr Uklanski, Francesco Vezzoli, Andy Warhol, Franz West, Rachel Whiteread, and Christopher Wool.
