Perrotin is pleased to announce a partnership with Bellagio Resort & Casino to open Perrotin Store Las Vegas, a new space championing contemporary art, located beside Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art
Perrotin Store Las Vegas offers new prints, editions, as well as Perrotin publications and artist-designed objects. Over the span of the next year, the space will become a site for activation and unique experiences with the gallery’s international roster of artists.
Perrotin Store first launched in Paris in 2011 and now houses five locations around the globe, including its own publishing program for monographs and artist editions. “Growing up, my parents couldn’t afford to purchase art, but they loved it so much. We could always find something in the gift shop, so our house was always filled with posters. That experience has been central to the development of my gallery. Art is for everyone,” said Emmanuel Perrotin, founder.
Since the founding of the gallery, Perrotin has been known for its revolutionary embrace of editions. The gallery has championed artists such as Daniel Arsham, Sophie Calle, Takashi Murakami, and JR who incorporate editions and multiples into their fine art. Perrotin Las Vegas, an art gallery, bookstore, and meeting space, will continue Perrotin’s vision of a new model for the experience of contemporary art. Following Paola Pivi’s impressive installation at MGM Resorts’ ARIA last year, the store at Bellagio includes artworks by Maurizio Cattelan, Johan Creten, Wim Delvoye, Farhad Moshiri, Jean-Michel Othoniel, Paola Pivi, and Aya Takano, among others.
Perrotin’s collaboration with Bellagio marks a new chapter in the hotel’s adventurous embrace of contemporary art. Bellagio, which boasts an ambitious collection of works by such artists as Robert Rauschenberg, Ghada Amer, Jacob Hashimoto, Tomás Esson, Noe Aoki, and Kohei Nawa, are committed to the cultivation of an arts community in Las Vegas.
“We are excited to bring exclusive Perrotin offerings to our guests and the Las Vegas community. The Perrotin Store will continue to elevate Bellagio’s artistic programming and showcase our continued support of living artists. From small items to unique artworks, every lover of contemporary art will be able to find a beautiful keepsake for their collection.” Demecina Beehn, Curator Special Projects and Programs for MGM Resorts Art & Culture.
