PERROTIN

New York Gallery Reopening

Perrotin New York is open with limited capacity through August 14. We remain open Tuesday through Sunday from 10am - 6pm and for select appointments on Mondays. Reservations are preferred, and can be made by phone, email (bookingny@perrotin.com), or through the See Saw app. 

The well-being of our community is our priority, and we have implemented strict precautionary measures for both our staff and visitors by: limiting capacity and carefully monitoring flow throughout the gallery, requiring all visitors and staff to wear a mask, providing touch-free hand sanitizer on each floor, retro-fitting all desks with plexiglass screens, making exhibition leaflets accessible via QR code, conducting routine cleanings of all surfaces, and implementing an RSVP system in the event that we need to assist public health officials with contact tracing.

Please do not hesitate to be in touch — info@perrotin.com
