Max Wigram Gallery Doubles Exhibition Space with New Premises on New Bond Street
LONDON.- Max Wigram Gallery will open in new, larger premises on New Bond Street this March, more than doubling the gallery’s exhibition space. The 300m2 space will encompass 110m2 of viewing space, with offices and additional gallery space to the rear.

Speaking about his new space, Wigram said: ‘I am looking forward to having an exhibition space that will do justice to my artists’ work. I have now been working with a stable of around fifteen artists for over seven years. We have come on a great journey from being without a space, to using a project space in the East End, before taking premises at 99 New Bond Street in 2005. The artists have grown with me and I can now offer them the space they deserve.”

Max Wigram Gallery will launch with new work by Marine Hugonnier (18 March – 24 April): the show focuses on works on paper, newspaper collages from the series Art For Modern Architecture alongside large silk screened paper monochrome constructions. Hugonnier’s clean and quiet aesthetic belies its intensity: there is multiple layering that speaks of man’s relationship to landscape, literature, ideology and history that enrich these apparently simple works. A comprehensive monograph on the artist has recently been published by JRP Ringier in collaboration with the FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, Malmö Konsthall and Kunstverein Braunschweig.

The gallery will then host exhibitions for Cory Arcangel (7 May – 12 June) and James White (25 June – 31 July). Arcangel has been acknowledged as one of the most inventive artists working in new media today. Perhaps best known for his customised rendition of the iconic Super Mario video game, his work goes far beyond the manipulation of technology, the appropriation, or ‘hacking’ of music (Arcangel is a Conservatoire graduate), film and video games. His practice is a thought-provoking commentary on popular culture through the radical use of new media and technologies.

White turns his meticulous black and white paintings into objects by encasing them in perspex boxes. His mundane subject matter - familiar situations and domestic still lives – recorded with such intensity, becomes something greater. Elevated to iconic status, it makes us reconsider the significance of the everyday.

Max Wigram Gallery has established a name for showing strong, younger artists whose work is beginning to register with national museums and collectors. Wigram’s policy has always been to champion artists with integrity and determination and has an immutable belief in their talent. “The first three shows in the new space sum up my attitude to contemporary art”, he says. “In Marine we have one of the most significant female artists working in Europe today; Cory is making enormous waves with his radical overhaul of digital art; whilst James is simply one of the best in his field, making sublime, deceptively simple paintings with extraordinary craftsmanship. The new space will be flexible enough to accommodate all of these works and show them to the best of their ability.”

Marine Hugonnier Private view 17 March, exhibition runs 18 march – 24 April
Cory Arcangel Private view 6 May, exhibition runs 7 May – 12 June
James White Private view 24 June, exhibition runs 25 June – 31 July
