The show featured works produced especially for the fundraiser by artists represented by the gallery such as Will Boone, Huma Bhabha, Rashid Johnson and Lauren Halsey.
Perrotin opens a fourth Paris gallery[hhmc]
Perrotin gallery is opening a new salon-style outpost in Paris this spring, its fourth in the French capital. The space will be located on Avenue Matignon, in the citys 8th arrondissement, “just a stones throw away from the Champs-Elysées, as well as the citys key auction houses”, says the gallery founder Emmanuel Perrotin. Despite the spaces diminutive scale—measuring only 70 sq. m compared with the combined 2,300 sq. m of its other three Parisian locations—the gallery plans to use a custom-made high-definition device to project reproductions of works. Collectors will be able to “view any work of art, on demand and at scale”, Perrotin says. As well as its galleries in Paris, Perrotin also has outposts in New York, Seoul, Tokyo and Shanghai, and there are plans to open a new space this year in Hong Kong.
