The gallery opened in March 2006 with an act of identification. The films of Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet were to constitute the pivot around which the gallery’s program would unfold. A decision was made to periodically screen one or several of their films, on their own or in conjunction with the work of other artists, to manifest an allegiance to a certain ethic of the image, a spirit of rigorous apprehension and exchange.
The gallery stages one-person and curated group exhibitions, and organizes film screenings and lectures by philosophers and theorists such as Alain Badiou, Slavoj Žižek, François Laruelle, and Quentin Meillassoux. In 2011, the gallery established publishing imprint Sequence Press, and released François Laruelle's The Concept of Non-Photography, Nick Land's Fanged Noumena, Quentin Meillassoux’s The Number and the Siren, and Spine by RH Quaytman.
