The new space will feature a ground-floor gallery for Mayoral’s programme of curated exhibitions, as well as a private viewing room; visitors can expect to see shows promoting works by Spanish post-war artists and their connection with their new Parisian environs. Director Siân Folley will ensure the gallery continues its long-term engagement with the French art market, nurturing existing relationships and developing new connections through its bespoke client service.
Founder Jordi Mayoral commented, “The opening of our Paris gallery consolidates our conviction that Paris plays an important role in the ecosystem of the global art market and that the foundations of Mayoral’s business model – foregrounding important artists from our culture and providing specialized services to collectors and art lovers – will flourish here.”
As its inaugural exhibition, Mayoral Paris will present the work of Antonio Saura in “Brigitte Bardot et d’autres femmes” – a selection of six masterpieces dating from 1956 to 1963 (one of which was first exhibited in 1964 at the Guggenheim Museum), curated by Martine Heredia.
