Following Paris, Hong Kong, New York and Seoul, Galerie Perrotin is pleased to announce in spring 2017 the opening of its new space in Tokyo on the ground floor of the Piramide building at 6-6-9 Roppongi Minato-ku Tokyo, in the heart of Roppongi area, a cultural and vibrant neighborhood which gathers a large number of Museums such as Mori Art Museum, Suntory Museum of Art, National Art Center (Art Triangle Roppongi), and many well established Galleries.
The 130 m2 space is being renovated and redesigned by the talented and innovative architect André Fu/AFSO who has also conceived Galerie Perrotin's Hong Kong space in 2012. Alice Lung and Etsuko Nakajima directors of Galerie Perrotin, Hong Kong from 2012 and Seoul from spring 2016 will run as well Galerie Perrotin, Tokyo, in coordination with Stephanie Vaillant working since 2012 at Galerie Perrotin, Hong Kong, who will now be based in Tokyo.

About the Gallery
Galerie Perrotin has been a pioneer in forging tight relationships between a Western gallery and Asian artists. This dates back to 1993 when Emmanuel Perrotin met Takashi Murakami and became the first gallery outside Japan to present Takashi Murakami. Over the succeeding two decades, the Gallery has supported and exhibited works by proeminent Asian artists through myriad collaborative projects, whilst representing meaningful French and international artists. It has also participated in many important art fairs held throughout Asia since 1994 with NICAF Art Fair in Yokohama, Japan, such as Art Basel Hong Kong, Art Stage Jakarta, ART021 and West Bund Art & Design, Shanghai among others. It has built upon very early a well-established connection with the Asian art scene, extended through both Galleries in Hong Kong (opened in 2012) and Seoul (inaugurated this spring 2016). Some artists of the gallery had got strong links with Asia already (in their projects themselves or their venues) including for example Sophie Calle, Wim Delvoye, KAWS, Xavier Veilhan, and Jean-Michel Othoniel. Its roster now features critically acclaimed Asian artists including Takashi Murakami, Aya Takano, Mr., Chen Fei, Chung Chang-Sup, Park Seo-Bo, Xu Zhen as well as Bharti Kher.
