We are pleased to announce that Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac London will open in Spring 2017.

Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac London will be located at Ely House on Dover Street, in the heart of London’s Mayfair. An outstanding 18th century mansion, Ely House was built in 1774 to serve as the episcopal residence for the Bishops of Ely before being repurposed in 1909 as the home of the Albermarle Club.

Spread over four floors and 1,500 m2 (16,000 ft2), Ely House will provide four distinct gallery spaces. The restoration of the rooms and galleries will be overseen by the New York based architect Annabelle Selldorf. The gallery will be led by Polly Robinson Gaer.

Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is pleased to announce the group exhibition 'Space Age' that will present historic and commissioned works by 21 contemporary artists in the four vast halls of the gallery in Paris Pantin.
Since the dawn of mankind the sky and outer space have been a field for multiple fascinations, desires, projections and relentless scientific and artistic curiosity. The exhibition explores Daedalus’ and one of humanity’s most archaic collective dreams: the conquest of the skies and the immersion in the cosmos.

In 2013 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the first expedition of a woman in space – Valentina Terechkova; in 2014 the 50 years of European Space cooperation, while the film Gravity just like the Rosetta mission show a renewed interest in outer space adventures. We have invited artists of different generations and practices to contribute with works that are inspired by the notion of outer space, and its multifarious connotations – from science to utopia.

Cory Arcangel | Richard Artschwager | Jules de Balincourt | Stephan Balkenhol | Philippe Bradshaw | Lee Bul | Estate Harun Farocki | Dan Flavin | Sylvie Fleury | Ilya & Emilia Kabakov | Alex Katz | Anselm Kiefer | Robert Longo | Patrick Neu | Jack Pierson | Robert Rauschenberg | James Rosenquist | Tom Sachs | David Salle | Estate Sturtevant | Not Vital

Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is pleased to announce the first exhibition of Imran Qureshi in our Marais gallery space. Qureshi, who lives and works in Lahore, Pakistan, was born in 1972. His unique style combines the motifs, symbolism, and ornamental techniques of Mughal miniature painting with contemporary conceptual approaches.

The exhibition 'Idea of Landscape' brings together a series of paintings, works on paper, as well as a video, which explore the dialogue between life and death. Leaves and nature represent the idea of life, whilst the colour red (that appears at first glance like real blood) represents death. The red also reminds Qureshi of the situation today in his country, Pakistan, and the world, where violence is almost a daily occurrence. “But somehow, people still have hope,” Qureshi says “hence the flowers that emerge from the red paint in my work represent the hope that—despite everything—the people sustain somehow, their hope for a better future.”

Mapping the idea of landscape, Qureshi’s floral ornaments cover canvases and penetrate spaces like vines. The permeability that borders, spaces and bodies experience in the wake of a violent attack, is also a metaphor for social structures, that interact with the nervous system. The work conjures up the vulnerability of the body as well as the social membrane bringing to life the arteries of our existence.

The titles of his works reflect not only these metaphors but also social and cultural connotations. And They Still Seek the Traces of Blood is taken from a poem by the Pakistani poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz, whose lyrics Qureshi heard on the radio as a child. It is about people who are buried without being honoured or without the circumstances of their death being investigated.

Please join us for the opening of "New Sculptures and Paintings" by Raqib Shaw on Saturday 6 June 2015, 6pm-8pm in the presence of the artist at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac Paris Marais.

Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is pleased to present Raqib Shaw’s second solo exhibition in the Paris Marais gallery featuring a series of new bronze sculptures and paintings.
Meticulously cast by the traditional "lost wax" casting method at the revered AB Foundry in England, at first glance Shaw's new sculptures resemble Late-Mannerist bronzes from the Renaissance. However on closer inspection, these tangled groups of perfectly honed male figures that dance, wrestle and contort with each other have the heads of vampire bats, loins of skulls, jaws of fantastical beasts and leather gear and boots from today's clubs.
True to his signature style, Shaw presents us with radical images that are on the one hand, deeply informed by art historical references and on the other hand, of such grotesque and erotic beauty that our imagination is lead to its utmost limit.

The exhibition will also include four new paintings not only rich in iconographic citations to western and eastern art history, mythology, poetry, theatre and the begginings of science but also in their composition, colour, precision of drawing and uniquely meticoulsy technique. Like an ancient alchemist or contemporary mixologist, Shaw uses enamel paint, a medium not commonly used in the rendering of fine paintings, which he paintstaikingly applies with a porcupine quill to create surfaces with details of intoxicating beauty.
