Founded in 1990 by Renos Xippas in Paris, the Xippas gallery is one of the oldest galleries in the Marais. Over the last thirty years, Xippas has worked alongside its artists to promote their talent. The gallery has published numerous catalogues and collaborated with prestigious institutions internationally. More than 500 exhibitions have been shown within its venues in Paris, Athens, Geneva, Montevideo and Punta del Este. Renos Xippas inaugurated his gallery in 1990 with a major exhibition dedicated to Takis, in the building it still occupies: 108 rue Vieille du Temple. Since then, Xippas has operated as a platform to promote and discover international artists in France including Lucas Samaras, Peter Halley, Vik Muniz, Robert Irwin, Vera Lutter, Takis, etc. It has also played an important role in the career of French artists such as Philippe Ramette, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, Valérie Jouve, Bertille Bak, Yves Bélorgey, Yvan Salomone, Dominique Blais, etc. In the years 2000, the gallery expanded internationally. Today Xippas is present in three countries: France (Paris), Switzerland (Geneva) and Uruguay (Punta del Este). Among the most recent exhibition spaces to open, is a brand new gallery space in Punta del Este (Uruguay), situated in a 6 hectare natural site of the famous South American seaside resort.
