We are entering a new era, one in which art as well as those quality social interactions inherent to the art world are needed more than ever.
However, given the communicable nature of covid-19, the gallery is presented with the obvious challenge of helping limit its spread. To this effect, we are committed to take all necessary measures to uphold protective sanitary procedures (please see below).
On another level, the pandemic’s requirement for social distancing has spurred us to develop new ways of working with our various partners, clients and even internally, as a team. For example, each team member now works directly with the artists while becoming more involved in curatorial activities, with more transversality.
In sum, we are shaping Galerie Jocelyn Wolff into a gallery for the XXIst century.
On this page, you will find information pertaining to the measures we are adopting to face the sanitary crisis as well as some of the new ways in which we are striving to fulfil our role in the nurturing the circulation of desire between expertise, art and its audience.
Welcome to Galerie Jocelyn Wolff
Our exhibition program is just as active and vibrant as always, if not more! For the time being, we can no longer hold social gatherings and social opening parties, but we look forward to dialoguing with you one to one. We look forward to sharing with you!!
Clean and safe for all during Covid-19 Circulation
Cleaning and disinfecting is carried out to all exhibition rooms and door handles systematically, and this, on a regular basis. Hydroalcoholic gel is available at the entrance, which we invite you to use upon arrival. Please avoid touching anything when not necessary. If you need a mask, please ask: we do our best to make replacement masks available. As suggested, we invite you to respect a distance of 1.5 meters with other visitors and staff.
Private viewings at the gallery in person
We continue to provide traditional, private viewings to our collectors on site. Please contact Sandrine Djerouet or Nasim Weiler or your current liaison to schedule a viewing appointment.
Online private viewings
For those who wish to acquire works by our artist(s) or want to explore our rich inventory of available works but cannot come to the gallery in person, we are developing tailored viewing rooms. We propose to first discuss your needs, desires and ideas so that we can prepare a private viewing room for you online. Please contact either Sandrine Djerouet or Jocelyn Wolff.
We are developing online exhibitions with our gallery artists and guests. More interactive and participatory in nature, these welcome your own curatorial suggestions. If you wish us to explore specific thematics linked to our gallery artists or specifically contextualize certain aspects of the oeuvre of our artists, please let us know your thoughts. This input is valuable in that it helps us develop editorial priorities, integrate new ideas, and underpin and promote interesting discussions. Available soon on our website.
Please contact Martina Panelli.
Video conferencing tours
We are available to provide a tour of the exhibition using video conferencing to groups. This can be carried out individually or using scheduled zoom meetings.
Getting to the gallery: nearby City Bike stations
Please contact the gallery if you have questions concerning electric bike charging, bike services, safe parking, etc.
Outdoor Projects and Commissions
With a program focused on sculpture, we have developed a rare expertise on private commissions and outdoor sculptures.
Currently, we are developing an experimental site, associating ecology, advanced experimental artistic practices and absolute respect of cultural heritage. More information coming soon…
On Going Green
Progressively and over the last few years, we began using boat transportation for international shipment and using collective transportation instead of individual cars. The gallery staff uses bicycles or public transportation wherever possible. The gallery also undertook an experimental site (Manoir d’Alvémont) exploring an ecological system for water. More information will be displayed on this project on our online platforms soon. The gallery is also changing the packing process, using green packing as opposed to non-green packing, etc. In sum, the gallery is advancing in its goal to become a responsible player in the twenty-first century.
Founded in 2003, Galerie Jocelyn Wolff opened with a solo show by Clemens von Wedemeyer, in a very small space in Belleville in East Paris. Most of represented artists had their first solo show at Galerie Jocelyn Wolff. In March 2006, the gallery moved to a new space in the same neighborhood, rue Julien-Lacroix.
In October 2019, the gallery opened a second space in the common project Komunuma in Romainville (Grand Paris). In 2020, we've decided to focus all our activities, and to move the office and exhibition space to Romainville.
