Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac Pantin
Not far from the Canal de l'Ourcq, the Parc de la Villette and the Philharmonie de Paris, the Thaddaeus Ropac Gallery in Pantin, is part of a cluster of dynamic cultural venues on the border of Paris promoting contemporary art. The Austrian gallerist Thaddaeus Ropac opened the Pantin gallery in 2012, in addition to his gallery in the Marais which opened in 1990.
Art on the edge
Housed in an old boiler factory of more than 4,700 m², the 19th century building, renovated by the architects Buttazoni & Associés, has retained its industrial charm with its superb red brick exterior. It is composed of four naves and the brightly illuminated interiors are home to the monumental works of some of the greatest contemporary artists such as Georg Baselitz, Alex Katz and Anselm Kiefer. Renowned estates are also represented such as that of Robert Mapplethorpe, Robert Rauschenberg, Elaine Sturtevant and Andy Warhol.
In addition to the 2,000 m² of exhibition space, the Pantin satellite gallery has a large area dedicated to performance, dance, conferences, screenings and other events organized in addition to temporary exhibitions. You will also find several green spaces and you can enjoy a moment to relax at the Café Bleu, whose large terrace, of course, is home to several works of art.
