He has worked closely with his roster of artists, some for more than 25 years, to help fulfill their ambitious projects.

Located since 2005 in an 18th century mansion and expanding two years later into the space next door, Perrotin count with three gallery spaces (approx. 17,000 square feet / 1,600 square meters) in the Marais district of Paris. In 2014, Perrotin opened a 700 square meters (7,500 square feet) showroom known as "La Salle de Bal", a former Ballroom in the Hôtel d’Ecquevilly named “du Grand Veneur”, a 17th century Hôtel Particulier. In its entirety, the Parisian spaces amount to approximately 2,300 square meters (25,000 square feet).

In May of 2012, Perrotin opened the Hong Kong gallery on the 17th floor of 50 Connaught Road Central (650 square meters / approx. 7,000 square feet), overlooking Victoria Harbour Bay.

From 2013 to 2016, Perrotin New York has been housed in a historic building on the Upper East Side’s iconic Madison Avenue. After three successful years there, Perrotin expanded in April of 2017 to a 2,300 square meters (25,000 square feet) space and relocated to 130 Orchard Street in New York City’s most dynamic arts neighborhood, the Lower East Side.

In June of 2017, Perrotin opened his newest gallery in Tokyo on the ground floor of the Piramide building at 6-6-9 Roppongi Minato-ku Tokyo.
