Former Christie’s Contemporary Director to Open Upper East Side Gallery

Fernando Mignoni, a former head of the postwar and contemporary art department at Christie’s London auction house, will open a gallery on New York’s Upper East Side on October 31, Nate Freeman of Artnews reports. Located on the second floor of 960 Madison Avenue, Mignoni Gallery will feature works by Donald Judd for its inaugural show.

After working at Christie’s for about a decade, Mignoni left to join a gallery owned by his mother, Elvira Gonzáles. He served as the director of secondary market sales at Galería Elvira González in Madrid for ten years. Mignoni will also run an art advisory service out of the new gallery.
