Emmanuel Perrotin founded his first gallery in 1990 at the age of twenty-one. He has worked closely with his roster of artists, some for more than twenty-five years, to help fulfill their ambitious projects. Perrotin has galleries in seven cities: Paris, Hong Kong, New York, Seoul, Tokyo, Shanghai and Dubai totaling approximately 8000 square meters (84,000 square feet) of exhibition space across ten locations.
Perrotin represents about sixty artists and eight estates, and also collaborates with approximately twenty other contemporary artists. Altogether, the gallery provides exposure to both established and emerging artists of more than twenty nationalities.
The gallery regularly publishes catalogues and editions, which are available through seven bookstores as well as its online store.
