Meet London's Art Scene's Latest Addition: David Gill Gallery
Renowned purveyor of contemporary Art, David Gill opened up a gorgeous new showroom in London last week. The gallery, located next to Christie’s in the Mayfair section of the city, is somewhat of a “destiny,” for Gill who began his career in that same auction house many years ago. This new gallery marks 25 years that David Gill has had an official hand in the gallery world of London. To open, he is presenting some creations of Zaha Hadid whose work you’ll see this summer as she designed the London Aquatics Centre for the 2012 Games, and who you may already know as the creator of the National Museum of 21st Century Arts in Rome and the Guangzhou Opera House in China. Hadid broke into furniture design back in 2007 when she collaborated with Gill to create Dune Formations—an ensemble of 21 pieces that could be used as tables, shelving, seating or even desks. The opening features some of those iconic designs as well as some brand new pieces. The exhibit will stick around for a little while longer—Gill has plans for two more shows this year and is floating drool-worthy names such as Mattia Bonetti, Gaetano Pesce, Barnaby Barford and Fredrikson Stallard. Whoever it may be, you’ve now got a new must-go-see destination on your London Map. Pics from the gallery after the jump.
