NEW YORK—New York art dealers Amalia Dayan and Stefania Bortolami will open their new gallery, Bortolami Dayan, in late September. The 4,000 square-foot gallery on West 25th street in Chelsea, is scheduled to open with a group show on the subject of “cynicism,” Dayan told ARTnewsletter. The exhibit will include work by major artists, including Urs Fischer, Sylvie Fleury, Damien Hirst, Tim Noble and Sue Webster, and Piotr Ulanski.
Dayan, who came to New York from Israel about eight years ago, has worked for art dealers Jeffrey Deitch and Larry Gagosian, and was a former contemporary art specialist at Phillips, de Pury & Company (formerly Phillips, de Pury and Luxembourg). Bortolami, a past director at the Gagosian Gallery, also worked with London gallerist Anthony d’Offay.
Dayan says the gallery thus far has Noble and Webster and Italian artist Piero Golia on the roster of artists to be represented. Following the group show, future solo exhibitions are planned for Hope Atherton and Noble and Webster.
