Balice Hertling was founded in Paris in 2007 by Daniele Balice and Alexander Hertling. It was one of the first galleries to open in the district of Belleville, where they used to share a space with the collective of artists, curators and writers known as Castillo/Corrales. In 2009, Balice Hertling relocated to a space of their own in the same neighborhood. Since its earliest stages, the gallery program has focused on the emerging scene, both locally and internationally. Since 2007, Daniele Balice and Alexander Hertling have worked to build up an international community by supporting foreign artists in France and introducing French artists abroad. To this end, from 2012 to 2016, they also operated a project space in Manhattan, where they hosted many first solo exhibitions for American artists. In 2017, Balice Hertling opened a new ground-floor gallery space mere blocks from the Centre Pompidou. With the expansion and focus on their new location in Paris, Balice Hertling will still maintain their former space in Belleville as a platform for curated projects and exhibitions by artists who are not necessarily represented by the gallery.
