- Paul Derrez
Member of Klimt02.
11th - 14th of May Galerie Ra will be represented at Collect 2012, visit them at stand nr 5.2.
StatementGalerie Ra specialises in contemporary jewellery design and vessels but also regularly features objects.
These are showcased in changing exhibitions held every two months, in the permanent collection and at annual trade fairs like Object Rotterdam, Frame (Munich) and Collect (London). All these events are announced and reviewed in the Ra Newsletter published every two months.
Galerie Ra represents some 50 international artists and designers. Innovation, proven talent and continuity form the basis of the gallery’s selection process.
Typical of Ra is the broad range of work it brings, regarding approach, design and use of materials. Shown work is usually unique but can also be produced in limited edition or serial form. Icons from the past remain available as Classics or Vintage.
Owner Paul Derrez opened Galerie Ra in 1976 and since then he has been the driving force in developing the gallery into a leading establishment for jewellery design. He places great emphasis on research and study, which has led to on-going special projects, themed exhibitions and publications. Derrez also teaches, lectures and serves on diverse committees.
Galerie Ra regularly publishes its own books like Masquerade (2001), Spoons (2002) and Radiant (2006). The gallery has over one hundred book titles in stock and these may be ordered via its website. Each autumn Ra also has a specialised book stand at the Jewellery trade fair in Amsterdam.
In September 2010 Galerie Ra relocated to the old heart of Amsterdam. The new premises at Nes 120, with its traditional exterior and monumental doors, is a listed building dating from 1907. The intimate space houses the changing exhibitions, permanent collection and book department. The gallery is only a ten-minute walk from Central Station and close to Rokin with all its major tram stops.
