Almine Rech Gallery

After studying Literature and Cinema, and then History of Art, Almine Rech worked for a modern art expert for three years.

In November 1989, she opened a gallery in the Marais district of Paris with an associate. Her first exhibition centered on a light piece by the American artist James Turrell, which was the first time a European gallery had presented this artist’s work.

In 1997, Almine Rech opened her eponymous gallery on rue Louise Weiss in the 13th arrondissement in Paris, and relocated to the Marais in 2006. After the opening of new spaces in Brussels (2009) and London (2014), Rech inaugurated her first U.S location in fall 2016 in New York, immediately followed by a second and larger space in London. The building housing the Brussels gallery is also home to the Fundacion Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso para el Arte (FABA), established in 2002.

The gallery’s choices are not tied to one or another formal aspect nor to a specific medium, but to the singularity of the artwork and the artistic commitment of the artists.

It has always been the gallery’s mission to continually seek out and add younger artists to its program. Almine Rech has since started working with artists such as Alex Israel, Joe Bradley, Aaron Curry, Taryn Simon, Matthias Bitzer, Erik Lindman, whilst also maintaining longstanding and stable relationships with internationally established artists such as John M Armleder, Jeff Koons, Jannis Kounellis,  John McCracken, Richard Prince, Julian Schnabel, DeWain Valentine and Franz West .
