Emmanuel Perrotin founded his first gallery in 1990 at the age of 21 in an apartment in Paris, and is one of the most influential gallerists in the world. He has since opened over 18 different spaces, with the aim to continue offering increasingly vibrant and creative environments to experience artists’ works. To date, Perrotin runs eight gallery spaces in Paris, Hong Kong, New York, Seoul, Tokyo and launched in late 2018, Shangai— spanning 7,000 square meters (75,000 square feet) across three continents. He has worked closely with his roster of artists, some for more than 25 years, to help fulfill their ambitious projects. Among them, Maurizio Cattelan, Takashi Murakami, KAWS, Jean-Michel Othoniel, Xavier Veilhan, or Sophie Calle. The gallery organizes about 35 exhibitions and participates in 20 art fairs worldwide each year. Over the past three decades, Perrotin has exhibited and supported contemporary and modern artists through numerous collaborative projects.
