About agnès b.
Agnès Troublé, known as agnès b., was born in Versailles. Her father, a lawyer, introduced her to music and art early on. Her teenage dream was to become a curator. At 17, she married a man passionate about books and cinema, Christian Bourgois. She has always keep the initial of his name as part of her design signature: agnès b. In 1973, she registered her own brand. In 1976, she opend her first store in a former butcher's shop in the Halles district: 3 rue du Jour. In 1984, she opened an art gallery next door: the Galerie du Jour. In 1997, the gallery moved to rue Quincampoix, and added a bookstore: the Librairie du Jour. With artist Christian Boltanski and curator Hans-Ulrich Obrist, she created a "hybrid periodical", Point d´ironie, whose 100,000 copies are today distributed world-wide free of charge. In 2018, the gallery and the bookstore became nomadic, before settling down in 2019 at La Fab, a place for everyone, Place Jean-Michel Basquiat in the 13th district of Paris. This new structure, which had once been social housing, was redesigned by the architect Augustin Rosenstiehl, from the SOA agency. Within the over 1,400 m² of space, agnès b. organizes thematic exhibitions using her collection of more than 5,000 works. The famous Galerie du Jour and Librairie du Jour are open and participate in the social solidarity actions of the agnès b. endowment fund.
