The gallery was founded in 2011 by a Swiss art dealer, Frédéric de Senarclens. It occupies 1,100 square metres (12,000 sq ft) in a historic Art Deco building on Armenian Street, in the cultural district of Singapore. It opened on 3 June 2011 with "Avant Première", which included works by Marc Quinn, Fernando Botero, Fabienne Verdier, Bernar Venet and Shirin Neshat.

Artists who have exhibited at the gallery include Pablo Reinoso, Ian Davenport, Bernar Venet, Shirin Neshat, Fabienne Verdier, Chun Kwang Young and Qiu Jie.

In early 2012 the gallery started its Emerging Artists programme to promote the work of promising artists at an early stage of their career. The programme offers the selected artist a first solo show in the gallery. Siddhartha Tawadey was the first artist to exhibit under this programme.

By 2013 about 35% of the clients of the gallery were from Singapore; some overseas clients visit the gallery. About 25% of sales are made online.
