Timothy Taylor Gallery

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 modern and contemporary artists, selling original and editioned artworks across many different media.


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 works, entitled ‘One Flight Up’.[2],[3] The move allowed the gallery to exhibit a greater scope of works in a space designed by the acclaimed Eric Parry Architects.[4]

Former Senior Curator of the Tate Modern,[5] Director of Exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Arts [6] and Director of Chisenhale Gallery,[7] Emma Dexter, joined Timothy Taylor Gallery as Director of Exhibitions in 2007. Emma has curated group shows including 'Ballet Mécanique' in 2007 and ‘Ventriloquist’ in 2009.[8],[9],[10]

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