Spurred on by its founder, the gallery contributes to the influence of international contemporary art in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. It discovers unknown talents from all over the world and gives them the means to achieve a long-term career on the professional art circuit.
Galerie Hervé Lancelin won the prestigious “Made in Luxembourg” label in 2015, both to reward its exceptional expertise as a gallery and to welcome the Luxembourg Art Prize, which it founded in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
