Founded by Renos Xippas in 1990 in Paris, Xippas Gallery has been expanding ever since in major European and Latin American cities. Focused on international contemporary art, the gallery has been developed as a platform for discovery and promotion of both young and established artists.
Situated in the heart of the Marais district in Paris, Xippas Gallery has hosted more than 150 exhibitions during the last 25 years. With 650 m2 spanning two levels, Xippas Gallery is among the largest art spaces in Paris. The first floor is dedicated to solo shows and group exhibitions whereas the basement is used as a showroom. Located at the outskirts of Paris, at Pacy-sur-Eure, La réserve is a large scale exhibition space. A two-level unified space of 2000 m2 enables artists and curators to carry out ambitious projects including monumental installations and major group shows.
In Geneva, Xippas Gallery is situated in the heart of the Quartier les Bains, the contemporary art district that has been developed around the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Mamco).
In Montevideo, the gallery is located at the Patrimonial building of the antique Hotel Colón. Typical example of the late 19th century architecture, the basement of the building has been entirely renovated and transformed into a white cube. A 200 m2 area divided in two spaces hosts solo shows as well as group exhibitions.
In Punta del Este, the gallery is located in the beautiful villa Manantiales, by the seaside, in between Punta del Este and José Ignacio, inaugurating its new space at december 2015.
