Marian Goodman to open second Paris space with work by Annette Messager

The gallery expands its presence in the French capital with a new outpost on the same street

This December, New York’s Marian Goodman Gallery will open a second Paris space, which will house exhibitions and a bookstore, at 66 rue du Temple in the city’s Marais district.

The new space significantly expands Goodman’s Paris presence and is situated almost opposite the dealer’s other gallery at 79 rue du Temple, inside the Hôtel de Montmor, a 17th-century hotel particulier. It has occupied that space since 1999, though the gallery has programmed exhibitions in Paris since 1995.

The new space opens with a show of works in ink by Annette Messager, who last week was awarded Japan’s Praemium Imperiale international art prize, worth 15 million yen ($150,000). In April, the artist showed her monumental work Daily, which included oversized sculptures of household tools—scissors, a safety pin, a hammer, a key—strung with fabric resembling body parts and hanging from the ceiling of Goodman’s New York gallery.
