Girardet has participated in group shows at major institutions such as the Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven; P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, New York; and the Hirshhorn Museum Washington. Solo exhibitions of his work have taken place at institutions such as the Kunstverein Hannover; the Sean Kelly Gallery, New York; and the Kunsthalle Bielefeld.
