Almine Rech-Picasso

Black and white photo of Almine Rech
Almine Rech-Picasso opened a gallery with an associate in the Marais in Paris in November 1989. Five years later, Almine Rech opened her own gallery in a new space in Paris. Almine Rech now has galleries in major cities including Brussels, London, New York, and Shanghai. The gallery’s programming is not tied to one formal aspect or to a specific medium, but to the singularity of the artwork and the artistic commitment of the artist. Almine Rech believes that art is a space for freedom of expression, perhaps the only such space in contemporary society. In addition to its roster of internationally recognized artists, it has always been the gallery’s mission to continually seek out and add artists to its program.
