Galerie Patrick Seguin expands beyond its Parisian flagship for the first time and debuts a London location in the heart of the exclusive Mayfair district. Located at 45-47 Brook Street, steps from landmark London hotel Claridge’s, the 65 square meter gallery will feature an alternating program of architecture, design and art exhibitions. Programming will reflect the gallery’s core business of architecture and design while continuing its tradition of collaboration with contemporary art galleries. “Our prime location in Mayfair engages the Gallery directly with London’s dynamic art scene,” explains gallery founder, Patrick Seguin. “We are excited to showcase the Gallery’s particular genius of putting architecture and design in conversation with contemporary art.” The inaugural exhibition opens October 11 and features two important architectural works by Mid-century Modern architect and designer Jean Prouvé including: “Temporary School of Villejuif” (1956) and an adaptation of “6×6 Demountable House” (1944) by London-based architecture practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP). The gallery has assembled the most significant collection of Prouvé’s demountable architecture, 20 houses to date, most of which are either unique works or limited examples.
