GALERIE PATRICK SEGUIN

Founded in 1989, Galerie Patrick Seguin is located in Paris’s Bastille district in a 300 sqm (3200 sq ft) space, renovated by Jean Nouvel, a 2008 Prizker Prize winner. Since its opening, the gallery has brought the talents of French designers such as Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand,Pierre Jeanneret, Le Corbusier and Jean Royère into the international spotlight.

With a particular specialization in the work of Jean Prouvé, Galerie Patrick Seguin works rigorously to promote both his furniture as well as his demountables houses.

As of today, the gallery has amassed the most important collection of these demountable houses, which for the most part are either unique examples or were produced in very few numbers.

The quality of the works selected by Patrick Seguin combined with his meticulous and informative presentations has resulted in unique exhibitions at the Centre Georges Pompidou and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Venice Biennale, and the Musée des Beaux Arts in Nancy, France.

The gallery has also published a series of monographic books that accompany the exhibitions.

In addition to featuring both Prouvé demountable houses and design exhibitions, the gallery invites an international contemporary art gallery to exhibit a “Carte Blanche” show in its Parisian space every year during the FIAC. Past exhibitions have included galleries Jablonka Galerie, Hauser & Wirth, Gagosian Gallery, Eva Presenhuber, Sadie Coles HQ, Galleria Massimo De Carlo, Paula Cooper Gallery, kurimanzutto and Luhring Augustine.

In October 2015, Galerie Patrick Seguin opened a second space in Mayfair, London. The focus of this location, primarily devoted to the development of the architectural aspect of Jean Prouvé’s work, will rotate between exhibitions focusing on architecture, twentieth century French furniture, and contemporary art.
