Art dealers Albert Baronian and Renos Xippas have teamed together to found Baronian Xippas, a new gallery in Brussels. Located in the former space of Albert Baronian, the gallery is a unique collaboration between two major figures in the contemporary art gallery world. Combining the strength of their 80-years of experience and expertise in the art world, Baronian and Xippas join their forces, knowledge and passion to create a new gallery that goes beyond the ordinary. This convergence will create a powerhouse on the Belgian, European and South American art scenes.
Baronian Xippas will present ambitious projects with the leading artists of each gallery – such as Darren Almond, André Butzer, Robert Devriendt, Wang Du, Lionel Esteve, Gilbert and George, Robert Irwin, Vik Muniz, Takis, Janaina Tschäpe, Gilberto Zorio…- while building on their respective strengths: a strong presence on the Belgian market for Albert Baronian and a solid structure for Renos Xippas.
Based on a common vision, shared values and a belief in adopting an open, human and accessible approach by creating personal relationship with collectors, art professionals and visitors, Baronian Xippas will use the experiences from the past to face today’s challenges. By doing so, the gallery embraces new possibilities and chances for the artists and the global art scene, resulting in a new dynamic on the Belgian and international art markets and increasing the international exposure of their artists.
