Lille, 16 October 2013, Art Media Agency (AMA).
Lille3000 is presenting an exhibition based on the vision of gallerist Emmanuel Perrotin, displaying the works of the artists he has exhibited over the course of his career. The exhibition is in honour of the gallery’s 25th anniversary. The Perrotin gallery currently presents 150 artworks by 77 artists in 3 different exhibition spaces.
The French gallerist, born in 1968, opened his first gallery in 1989 in the Marais district of Paris. In 2012 he opened a gallery in Hong Kong and another in New York.
Lille3000 is a project which seeks to further the artistic dynamism of the city of Lille “neither a festival or a biennale, lille3000 invites us to a cultural discovery, through some of the most contemporary artists both here and abroad, whilst sharing its shows with the biggest number of people, in the heart of the city”, stated Martine Aubry, mayoress of Lille.
“Happy Birthday: Galerie Perrotin / 25 ans” is taking place in Lille from 11 October 2013 until 12 January 2014, in the artistic institution Tri Postal.
