Galerie Perrotin in Shanghai.

Galerie Perrotin to Open Shanghai Space

Artnews reports that Galerie Perrotin, which has spaces in New York, Paris, Tokyo, Seoul, and Hong Kong, is opening up another outpost in Shanghai’s Bund district in September. The gallery, which will have 12,900 feet of space, is part of Perrotin's larger program to broaden its presence in Asia. 

Pieter Vermeersch’s second solo show at Perrotin’s Paris location was reviewed in a Critic’s Pick for Artforum by Maria Chiara Valacchi last year. “Vermeersch’s colors, like blades, cut through the natural patterns of his hard supports, such as onyx and red travertine,” wrote the critic. “His planned abstract forms contrast remarkably with the abstractions—built over hundreds of years—of the stones.”
