The Alan Cristea Gallery is pleased to announce its relocation to Pall Mall, St. James’s.
A leading publisher of contemporary editions and prints, and a primary representative for a number of international contemporary artists and artists’ estates, the Alan Cristea Gallery has expanded considerably over the past 21 years. The new, larger, bespoke premises, which are better suited to the representation of the gallery’s lengthy roster of international artists, is being designed by award winning Stephen Marshall Architects.
Redevelopment of the space at Pall Mall includes gallery space on two levels, high ceilings, a glass-fronted library and a purpose built showroom. Stephen Marshall has been in practice as an architect for over thirty years, and a significant part of his work is dedicated to art galleries and institutes, which include galleries for the New Art Centre at Roche Court and the Rothschild Archives and Library at Waddesdon Manor.
The final exhibition in the Cork Street gallery space will Antony Gormley: CAST, 13 May – 2 July 2016. Gormley will present three new bodies of work for his first solo exhibition with the Alan Cristea Gallery; life-sized body prints made with crude oil; seven life-size woodblock prints related to his 2014 sculptures, Expansion Field, and a smaller series of aquatints and etchings to be displayed across both gallery spaces.
The Alan Cristea Gallery will close late summer, and the new gallery on Pall Mall is scheduled to open to the public towards the end of the year.
