Opened in 1990 in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the Georges-Philippe & Nathalie Vallois gallery has been able to bring together heritage and contemporary artists through large-scale exhibitions, the duality of Contemporary Art/New Realism having always been one of its singularities. Since the gallery’s opening, she has had a large number of solo exhibitions, most of which were the first in a French gallery, such as those of Alain Bublex (1992), Gilles Barbier (1995), Richard Jackson (2001), Henrique Oliveira (2011), Pierre Seinturier (2014), and more recently the Iranian artist duo Peybak (2015) and the French Lucie Picandet (2018), as well as the Russian Zhenya Machneva. This story continues with the performance of artists from the avant-garde of the 1960s such as Tinguely, Villeglé, Stämpfli and Niki de Saint Phalle. In 2016, the gallery opens a second space at 33 rue de Seine and broadens its view of the avant-gardes to the Hyperrealist Movement born in 1970 in the United States with performances by John de Andrea and Robert Cottingham.
