Almine Rech opened its doors on April 1st, 1997 in the 13th arrondissement in Paris. The gallery was founded on an axis of California Minimal, Perceptual art and Conceptual art, representing artists such as James Turrell, John McCracken and Joseph Kosuth.Read More
In addition to its stable of internationally recognised, mid-career and emerging artists, it has always been the gallery's mission to continually seek out and include new artists in its program, opening especially to painters.
The gallery has held longstanding relationships with artists like John McCracken and James Turrell and has since started working with and representing artists such as Alex Israel and De Wain Valentine, Jeff Koons and the painters Antoni Tàpies, Karel Appel, Nathaniel Mary Quinn, Vaughn Spann, and Claire Tabouret, among others. In 2006 the gallery moved to a larger two-floor space in the Marais district and in 2008 inaugurated a second 1,000 square meter exhibition space in Brussels. In March 2013, Almine Rech launched its new Paris space at 64 rue de Turenne. In June 2014, Almine Rech opened a gallery in London on Savile Row, Mayfair. In October 2016, the gallery moved from Savile Row to a larger space on Grosvenor Hill, Mayfair.
The 400 square meter gallery opened with a solo exhibition by Jeff Koons. Almine Rech also opened in Manhattan’s Upper East Side–the gallery's first exhibition space in the US–at the end of October, 2016. The New York gallery's inaugurating exhibition was Calder and Picasso.
In 2019, Almine Rech inaugurated its new Shanghai space. The gallery opened at 27 Huqiu Road on July 12, 2019 with a group show titled Approaches to Abstraction featuring a selection of artists from the gallery’s roster, including John M Armleder, Sylvie Fleury, and Günther Förg in conjunction with an exhibition curated by the gallery at Song Art Museum, Beijing.
