Pilar Corrias to open second London space on Savile Row in July
Pilar Corrias is delighted to announce the opening of a second London space located at 2 Savile Row. The 1,200-square foot gallery is being designed by London and Oslo-based architects Hesselbrand and will open on 8 July 2021 with an inaugural exhibition by Tala Madani, running until 8 September.
The street-level gallery will be situated in a former townhouse built in the 1730s as part of the development of the Burlington Estate. The house’s first leaseholder was the eminent architect and designer William Kent. Hesselbrand’s design will speak to the original character of 18th-century London townhouses – residences whose ground floor spaces were often part of the life of the city – and will create a soft boundary between the gallery and the street. A skylit atrium will be the focal point at the far end of the space.
Pilar Corrias has said:
“I am thrilled to be opening a second London gallery in Mayfair this summer. This expansion will present exciting new opportunities for our artists, with the unique character and history of 2 Savile Row complementing the Eastcastle Street gallery and offering its own distinct possibilities. I am proud to reaffirm the gallery’s commitment to London and the city’s vital cultural contribution.”
Tala Madani also has a concurrent exhibition, Skid Mark, at Corrias’ existing gallery on Eastcastle Street, running until 10 July 2021.
