NEW YORK, NY.- Effective immediately, Marlborough Chelsea will be known as Marlborough Contemporary. This change signals the alignment of Marlborough’s contemporary programs in New York (545 West 25th Street) and London (6 Albemarle St, 2nd Floor) under the leadership of Max Levai and Pascal Spengemann.

In New York, Levai and Spengemann have been joined by Director Nichole Caruso, formerly of Wallspace Gallery and Lisa Cooley Gallery, as well as Leo Fitzpatrick, who will continue overseeing the adjacent Viewing Room gallery. Ed Spurr, formerly of Matthew Marks Gallery, will also join Marlborough Contemporary as a Director in London.

“We look forward to our expansion in London as well as our upcoming programming in New York. We are now an internationally aligned program, and Marlborough Contemporary represents the future of this legendary gallery,” says Max Levai, Principal Director of Marlborough Contemporary. “This expansion opens up an exciting opportunity for connecting with new artists and expanding our audience.”

The New York space will continue to present a robust calendar of diverse exhibitions. Recent exhibitions include Werner Büttner’s first solo show in New York in nearly 30 years, the first retrospective of Stephen Kaltenbach’s 1960s conceptual objects, and, on view through February 25, Mike Bouchet’s Tender, a 45,000-square-foot dematerialized sculpture consisting of the scent of U.S. currency.

This March 4th, in New York, Marlborough Contemporary will open The Exile at Home, a comprehensive exhibition of paintings by R.B. Kitaj. Exhibitions with Julius Von Bismarck, Anne Neukamp, Ivana Basic, Keith Mayerson and Celeste Depuy-Spencer are planned for 2017. The new Marlborough Contemporary will be participating in The Armory Show (March 2-5, 2017).

The first season of London programming will focus on a diverse group of living artists, primarily from the U.S., all of whom will be making their first solo exhibitions in London. The program will be inaugurated on April 27th with an exhibition of new work by Sarah Braman. The first comprehensive exhibition in Europe of work by Susan Te Kahurangi King, organized by Chris Byrne, will open on June 1.

Marlborough Chelsea has underscored its presence in New York with its two-year program on Broome Street, as well as an ambitious exhibition of public sculpture, Broadway Morey Boogie (2014-2015) which spanned over one hundred blocks between Columbus Circle and 166th on Broadway. In Europe, Marlborough Chelsea has contributed to Art Basel’s Art Unlimited with ambitious presentations by Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe (2013, 2016) and Julius Von Bismarck (2015), produced an exhibition of collaborative work by Mike Bouchet and Paul McCarthy in Monaco, and organized an immersive performance and exhibition in the Winfield House in London with Freeman and Lowe.

Marlborough Contemporary London was formerly under the directorship of Andrew Renton. Renton’s tenure was marked by an ambitious and innovative program of exhibitions by a roster of international artists, and the development of a global profile for Marlborough Contemporary.
