Over the past few years, Gagosian Gallery, David Zwirner, Pace Gallery, Hauser & Wirth, and Michael Werner have all set up outposts in London’s Mayfair district. This summer, Joseph Nahmad will join the trend with Nahmad Projects, which will open on June 9 at 2 Cork Street.For his London project space, Nahmad’s first ever, the young dealer will be working with Tommaso Calabro. Nahmad Projects will showcase both emerging and established artists.“We are thrilled to be launching this ambitious new venture and hope it will bring something fresh and inspirational to Mayfair,” Nahmad said in a statement. “For our opening project we will have the privilege of collaborating with an internationally renowned curator and are looking forward to a mesmerizing experience.”
Correction 03/16/2016, 10:39 a.m.: An earlier version of this article misstated the number of spaces Joseph Nahmad runs. Nahmad Projects is the first space Nahmad has opened, not the second. (Another Joseph Nahmad, the Nahmad Projects founder's cousin, runs a New York space called Nahmad Contemporary.) The post has been updated to reflect this.
