Galerie Pauline Pavec

Modern and Contemporary art

In 2017, Pauline Pavec, art historian, accompanied by artist Quentin Derouet, founded the Pauline Pavec gallery. Located in the heart of the Haut Marais in Paris, the gallery is like a chapel in which different generations of artists dialogue.

They exhibited major works from the history of the 20th century, such as gouaches from Bram van Velde, or the first photographs of « Die Puppe » from Hans Bellmer. They take over the estate of Robert Malaval, Gherasim Luca, René Iché, François Ristori and Jacques Prévert, alongside emerging artists.

In 2019, Pauline Pavec gallery presented a retrospective exhibition of Robert Malaval, exhibited Jacques Prévert’s collages, presented three young artist’s solo shows. In collaboration with Thaddaeus Ropac gallery, they had the chance to exhibit collages from Adrian Ghenie, a phenomenon artist, facing the mythical works of Gherasim Luca. To inaugurate 2020, Pauline Pavec gallery has proposed the Ephemerides series from Jacques Prévert. Between the end of 2020 and 2021 Pauline Pavec has exhibited the work of herman de vries, alongside emerging artist Adam Bogey, major works from french historic artist Robert Filliou and organized an important duo show between André Cadere and François Ristori.
