Continuing in its series of invitations to large collections, Lille3000 has invited the Galerie Perrotin to take over the spaces of the Tripostal in Lille. This exhibition will be an opportunity to take stock of French art dealer Emmanuel Perrotin’s vision of art and the world today, through a selection of works by artists he has exhibited in the course of his 25-year career.

The special edition of BeauxArts looks back on his career, his meeting with the artists, the links it has established with them throughout these 25 years, before giving way to an annotated catalog of the finest works from the collection.

Born in 1968, Emmanuel Perrotin opened his first gallery in Paris
in 1989 in an apartment in the Marais district of Paris, near the Pompidou Centre. After having occupied several places from 1989 to 2005, the gallery is now housed in a mansion in the Rue de Turenne.

In 2012, he opened a second gallery in Hong Kong. A third will open next September in New York.

He got his start in the contemporary art world at the young age of 17, when he became the assistant of the young dealer Charles Cartwright, who was already working with artists such as Marina Abramovic or Alighero Boetti. Passionate and self-taught, Emmanuel Perrotin proved to have an eye for talent. In 1991, he organised the first ever commercial exhibition of Damien Hirst’s work, then in 1992 presented the subversive Maurizio Cattelan; the following year, he began his collaboration with Takashi Murakami. Since then he has exhibited, among others, Johan Creten, Klara Kristalova, KAWS, Farhad Moshiri and Paola Pivi.

NAKED MEN
“I almost never draw a completely naked man. He has to have at least a pair of boots or something on. To me, a fully dressed man is more erotic than a naked one. A naked man is, of course beautiful, but dress him in black leather or a uniform — ah, then he is more than beautiful, then he is sexy!”
— Tom of Finland
