Timothy Taylor Gallery is a modern and contemporary art gallery in Mayfair, London, owned and founded by Timothy Taylor. The gallery represents a variety of artists, selling original and editioned artworks across many different media.

History[edit]

The gallery was founded in 1996 on Bruton Place and later moved to 24 Dering Street in 2003,[1] expanding to include a second space at 21 Dering Street in 2006, which closed when they opened their new gallery at 15 Carlos Place, Mayfair.

In October 2007, Timothy Taylor Gallery opened a new 2,000-square-foot (190 m2) space in 15 Carlos Place, Mayfair, London, with an inaugural exhibition of Alex Katz's One Flight Up.[2],[3] The move allowed the gallery to exhibit a greater scope of works in a space designed by Eric Parry Architects.[4]

Emma Dexter, former Senior Curator of the Tate Modern,[5] Director of Exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Arts[5] and Director of Chisenhale Gallery,[6] joined Timothy Taylor Gallery as Director of Exhibitions in 2007. Dexter has curated group shows including Ballet Mécanique in 2007 and Ventriloquist in 2009.[7],[8],[9]

The gallery has produced over twenty publications, and shown over seventy exhibitions since its opening. Timothy Taylor Gallery also takes part in a number of art fairs worldwide, including the Frieze Art Fair, Art Basel Miami, and Art Basel.
