Hip European contemporary art dealer Thaddaeus Ropac
has just kicked things up a notch by opening a new 8,530-square-foot space with 22-foot ceilings just outside Salzburg. The new Halle
, as it is called, is designed to accommodate gargantuan artworks, which are becoming increasingly common. "When we did our Anselm Kiefer
show, we had a hard time getting the paintings through the doors," Ropac says. "One 20-foot work we couldn’t show."
