Originally founded as the online art gallery Flying Rooster Contemporary Projects (FRCP) in 2012, Galerie Youn opened as a brick-and-mortar space in May 2013 on Boulevard Saint-Laurent in Montreal. In the spring of 2021, when a location gallery owner Juno Youn had had his eye on for over fourteen years became available, Galerie Youn left the Mile-End for Old Montreal.
Galerie Youn focuses on building bridges between local, national and international emerging to mid-career contemporary artists. It currently represents two dozen artists, about half from Canada and the rest from the United States, Europe and Asia. Galerie Youn regularly takes part in art fairs across Europe and North America, from Seattle to Miami, New York, and Madrid.
Galerie Youn keeps on reinventing itself: In 2021 alone, it launched a full-service online boutique and moved to a sleek and elegant new space located at the heart of historic Old Montreal. Galerie Youn presents a number of carefully selected solo and group exhibitions each year, which can be experienced in person or toured virtually.
