RX | Paris
In October 2016, the project of relocating in the Marais, a district greatly dedicated to contemporary art, was realized with the opening of a 640m2 new space. This mansion, formerly Hotel Gegault de Crisenoy, is located between the Musée Picasso and the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature.
The strategic location in the heart of the Marais, the 6 public and private exhibition rooms and the layout of the space all provide the artists of the gallery new perspectives and promote collaborations with curators and international artists. Each exhibition allows hanging artworks simultaneously, establishing a dialogue around works of different artists either represented or invited by the gallery and exhibiting several solo shows at the same time. A large storeroom of works with storage racks, drawing tables and hanging walls is also able to enrich exhibitions and to hang artworks according to various requests and projects.
Besides, the gallery proposes and develops outdoor projects with public and private institutions as well as partnerships with international galleries. The France-Korea Year was a good example, involved in a large number of institutional collaborations, such as the Musée Guimet, the Musée d'Art Moderne in Saint-Etienne, the Musée Cernuschi, the Château de Chambord, the Domaine de Chaumont, the Jardins du Palais-Royal and also the Domaine de Kerguehennec.
Finally, the gallery participates in international art fairs such as Paris Photo since 2009, Artissima, Turin - Art Brussels - KIAF, South Korea - Art Cologne - Drawing Now, Paris - Photo London - Art MIAMI.

The galerie RX opened in 2002 at a first address, 6 Avenue Delcassé in the 8th of Paris, then a second one in 2006 right next door. Open in September 2010: The Générateur RX, is a place of experimentation designed to live contemporary art in a new way.
This space of 1500m2 and 14 meters in height, located at Ivry-sur -Seine at the gates of Paris, Not very far from the Bibliothèque Nationale de France (French National Library), is equipped with four residential artist studios, four storage boxes of which one is dedicated to monumental pieces of art, a platform for displays or events and the presentation of art pieces done in-situ.
This space, witness to the astounding technological and scientific advances at the beginning of the twentieth century, has seen illustrious personalities such as Gustave Eiffel and his architectural structure built in 1923 by the Laboratoire Ampère, Robert Doisneau for having immortalized it with a series of photographs, and especially the husband and wife team Joliot-Curie who researched nuclear energy with a gigantic impulse generator, a machine that makes electrical shocks.
Gallery RX at Ivry-sur-Seine, working as a veritable generator of projects, exchanges and sales, has been a unique place since 2015 after the closure of Parisian spaces.
