GALERIE THADDAEUS ROPAC
With a view to delocalisation, Thaddaeus Ropac has opened a second gallery on the outskirts of Paris. A former factory and boilerworks dating from the early 20th century, this unique space can cater for monumental works that tie in with the exhibitions. Following on from their work on the Marais address, architects Buttazzoni & Associés managed to preserve the historic nature of the eight buildings under preservation. A space of 4,700 sqm with 2,000 sqm exhibition space, the whole is divided into four light-suffused naves seven to twelve metres high. As well as the modular walls, the private Showroom En, the archives and of ces there is a multi-purpose entity earmarked for performances, conferences and projections. Here, art thinks BIG.
