Additional Info


Since its foundation in 1983, Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac has specialized in international contemporary art representing around sixty artists including very established names, mid-career artists and emerging young talents as well as several renowned estates. With a team of 80 employees and approximately 30 extensive solo and group exhibitions held per year in the Salzburg, Paris and Paris Pantin spaces, Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac supports and showcases the careers of some of the most influential artists today. With accompanying catalogues and books, written by prominent art historians, poets and Nobel Prize winners, such as Norman Rosenthal or Orhan Pamuk, the gallery has a thoughtfully selected editorial line resulting in an extensive library resource.

From its origin in Salzburg, the gallery now holds three distinctive venues, two of which are located in the Paris region. Since 1983 Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac has established itself in Salzburg located in the Villa Kast, a 19th century townhouse in the picturesque setting of the Mirabell Garden and the historical centre. In March 2010, the gallery opened Salzburg Halle, an additional exhibition space spreading over 2,500 m² within an industrial building close to the city centre of Salzburg.

In 1990, Thaddaeus Ropac opened his primary Paris space in the Marais. Today, the gallery space spans four floors with a 1000m2 exhibition surface that also includes an extensive Drawings Department.

In October 2012, the most recent and ambitious project to this date was completed; redeveloping an early 20th century ironworks factory into an art space in Paris Pantin. Its location in the North East of Paris in the neighbourhood of the new Philharmonie de Paris has allowed for new perspectives for the gallery, fostering interactions and collaborations with the cultural community, and allowing for the unprecedented display of large-scale works.  Spread over an area of 5000m2 and several buildings, 2500m2 serve as exhibition spaces. Since its opening, this venue has also welcomed presentations of satellite events, such as performances, concerts and talks, expanding the gallery´s artistic outlook.

Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac represents its artists at all major art fairs worldwide. Active in both the primary and secondary markets, the gallery’s role extends to curatorial work, where it acts as a consultant to major museums and public institutions as well as an advisor to private and corporate collections.
