Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin will celebrate its 25th anniversary this autumn at the Tripostal in Lille. The Happy Birthday exhibition showcases pieces throughout Emmanuel Perrotin’s career, most of which are now in private collections. The Tripostal is a 6,000 m2 space, giving Perrotin enough space to present both the artists who have been part of his career along the way and those who are part of the current programming at his gallery.
Emmanuel Perrotin, ranks among the world’s most well-known gallery owners, both for the distinctiveness of his artistic choices and for his ability to combine exacting standards. The large open spaces of the Tripostal will accommodate more than 100 works, sculptures and monumental installations by Wim Delvoye, Daniel Firman and Tatiana Trouvé, mobiles by Lionel Estève, La Filature and Vingt ans après by Sophie Calle, the famous INRI by Maurizio Cattelan and works specially designed for the venue by Gelitin, Guy Limone and Pieter Vermeersch.
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, JR, Kolkoz, Ange Leccia, Jean-Michel Othoniel, Philippe Parreno, 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.
