GALLERY

Almine Rech opened its doors on April 1st, 1997 in the 13th arrondissement in Paris. The gallery was founded on a minimal and conceptual axis, representing artists such as James Turrell, John McCracken and Joseph Kosuth. In addition to its stable of internationally recognized, mid-career and emerging artists, it has always been the gallery’s mission to continually seek out and include new artists in its program. The gallery has held longstanding relationships with artists like John McCracken and James Turrell and has since started working with and representing artists such as Günther Förg, Alex Israel, Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, Julian Schnabel, Taryn Simon and DeWain Valentine, among others. In 2006 the gallery moved to a larger two-floor space in the Marais district and in 2008 inaugurated a second 1,000 square meter exhibition space in Brussels.

In March 2013, Almine Rech launched its new Paris space at 64 rue de Turenne. In June 2014, Almine Rech opened a gallery in London on Savile Row, Mayfair. In October 2016, the gallery moved from Savile Row to a larger space on Grosvenor Hill, Mayfair. The 400 square meter gallery opened with a solo exhibition by Jeff Koons. Almine Rech also opened in Manhattan’s Upper East Side — the gallery’s first exhibition space in the US — at the end of October, 2016. The New York gallery’s inaugurating exhibition was “Calder and Picasso”.

dépendance was founded in late 2003. The gallery sees itself as more than a commercial space and shares its artists’ critical views.

Thomas Bayrle, Michael Krebber, Richard Aldrich and Ed Atkins all showed in Belgium for the first time with dépendance.

The gallery tries to strike a balance between emerging and more established artists. In order to open up more possibilities for artistic creation, the gallery decided to expand; as of September 2014 dépendance is operating out both Rue du Marché aux Porcs 4 and 8. The renewed gallery space marks a new phase in the development of dépendance. Since Summer 2016, the gallery again represents the Belgium artist duo Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys.

LA MAISON DE RENDEZ-VOUS is a Brussels-based space shared by four international galleries: LambdaLambdaLambda, Prishtina; Lulu, Mexico City; MISAKO&ROSEN, Tokyo; and Park View/Paul Soto, Los Angeles. Akin to the Alain Robbe-Grillet novel from which it borrows its name, LA MAISON DE RENDEZ-VOUS features a shifting cast of characters drawn from the programs and networks of the participating spaces. Less a pop up than a committed initiative that seeks to create dialogue, exchange and connection, LA MAISON DE RENDEZ-VOUS intends to be a synthetic crossroads, a semi-open source program, a modest node among the vibrant artscape of Brussels. The gallery opened its doors in January 2019 with its inaugural group-show “La peinture abstraite” that was a collaboration between the 4 galleries, followed by a solo-exhibition by Brussels-based artist Yuki Okumura (organized by Misako&Rosen).

In 2008, Olivier Meessen and Jan De Clercq created a new platform for contemporary art in Brussels. Spread over three floors of a house built in 1911, the gallery presents solo and curated group shows, creating catalogues in close collaboration with the artists involved.

In 2018 Meessen De Clercq celebrates its tenth year of existence, an excellent occasion to launch an atypical curated project. To celebrate the years dedicated to accompanying the public in its discovery of contemporary art, Meessen De Clercq invites ten artists, who are not represented by the gallery, to develop a personal project. Based on the game Chinese whispers, the projects are successively shown, each project determining the next one. As such, a story spread in time is created by a chain of consecutive acts, written by different artists, taking into account a known and limited space, the ‘Wunderkammer’, visible from the street. Initiated in September 2018 with Ryan Gander, his project was followed by proposals from Navid Nuur, Jonathan Monk, Sofia Hultén, Jason Dodge. Gabriel Kuri is the sixth invited artist to propose a project for the Wunderkammer.

Mendes Wood DM was founded in 2010 by partners Felipe Dmab, Matthew Wood and Pedro Mendes with the intent to exhibit international and Brazilian artists in a context conducive to critical dialogue and cross-pollination. Central to the gallery’s program is a concern for regional difference and individuation while fostering cosmopolitanism and collaboration. Inspired by a belief that artistic practices broaden the scope of human agency and have the power to both touch and change the world, Mendes Wood DM cultivates a program premised on conceptualism, political resistance and intellectual rigor.

In 2017, Mendes Wood DM inaugurated its first North American exhibition space in New York with a series of two-person shows juxtaposing historical and contemporary material; including artists such as Lucas Arruda and On Kawara, Sonia Gomes and A.R. Penck.

In the same year, Mendes Wood DM expanded its European presence with a new gallery in Brussels founded in partnership with longtime friend and collaborator Carolyn Drake Kandiyoti. Located in a historic townhouse, the space lends itself to ambitious curatorial projects and monographic exhibitions, as well as welcoming artists and curators in residence. The residency is integral to the gallery project to establish a place for the active exchange, creation and reformulation of varying artistic narratives.

It first opened rue Bonaparte, in Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris, before moving in 1972 to its current location, rue Beaubourg, in the Marais, close to the Pompidou Center, which opened in 1977. Daniel Templon first gained recognition by exhibiting conceptual and minimal artists such as Martin Barré, Christian Boltanski, Donald Judd, Joseph Kosuth, Richard Serra. In the seventies and eighties, Daniel Templon was one of the pioneers of the contemporary art and introduced many important American artists to the French public:  Dan Flavin, Ellsworth Kelly, Willem de Kooning, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol. The gallery quickly became one of the references in contemporary art in France. In 1972, Daniel Templon and Catherine Millet co-founded the monthly art magazine ART PRESS.  

Today Galerie Templon represents a group of international artists. The program promotes a dialogue between generations: established artists, international mid-career artists, and the experiences of younger artists.The gallery also provides curatorial expertise and assistance in the mounting of exhibitions by its artists in museums or international exhibitions. Many of its artists have participated in international exhibitions such as the Venice Biennale, Documenta, the Whitney Biennale etc. 

Galerie Templon is involved in the production of its artists and is committed to a strong editorial policy with the publication of exhibition catalogues. It has three spaces: two exhibition spaces in Paris (30 rue Beaubourg and 28 rue du Grenier Saint-Lazare) and one in Brussels, Belgium. The gallery participates in art fairs worldwide, including FIAC since 1974 and ART BASEL since 1978. 

Galerie Templons history is now the subject of a book by historian Julie Verlaine “Daniel Templon: History of Contemporary Art” published by Flammarion in 2016.
