Olivier Malingue was founded on London's New Bond Street in 2016 to bring key historical works into contemporary curatorial frameworks. With access to a wide range of Impressionist, Modern, Surrealist, Post-war and Contemporary works, the gallery presents a considered exhibition programme which intelligently combines works from different historical contexts.
The gallery was inaugurated with a solo show by established Korean Dansaekhwa artist Cho Yong-Ik, with further exhibitions including the first UK solo show of Japanese contemporary artist Makoto Ofune and three group exhibitions of modern masters including works by Alexander Calder, Jean Dubuffet, Wassily Kandinsky, Fernand Léger, Francis Picabia and Pablo Picasso.
In 2018, the gallery presented Surrealism: A Conversation, showing works by some of the most significant figures within the Surrealist movement, including Jean Arp, Salvador Dalí, Óscar Domínguez, Max Ernst, René Magritte, Roberto Matta and Yves Tanguy. In October, the gallery presented Suspension: A History of Abstract Hanging Sculpture 1918 - 2018, bringing together more than 50 works related to this little-known sculptural genre, produced by 30 artists, including Louise Bourgeois, Marcel Duchamp, Yves Klein and Alexander Rodchenko, across two exhibitions, at Olivier Malingue in London, and Palais d'Iéna in Paris.
In 2019, the gallery programme opened with the exhibition, Modern and Surreal, including works by Victor Brauner, Paul Delvaux, Max Ernst, Jean Fautrier, Fernand Léger, Heinz Mack, Roberto Matta, Pablo Picasso and Kees Van Dongen.
Through his programme, Olivier Malingue builds on over 20 years of expertise dealing with key pieces by internationally acclaimed masters from the 19th and 20th centuries.
