Lévy Gorvy to Open New Hong Kong Space in 2019

Dominique Lévy and Brett Gorvy, the founders of Lévy Gorvy, announced today that the gallery will establish headquarters in Asia in March 2019. The gallery will join Pace Gallery, David Zwirner, Gagosian, and Hauser & Wirth in Hong Kong. Its new space in the city’s Central District will be located on the ground floor of the historic St. George’s Building and will serve as the “third pillar” of Lévy Gorvy’s operations, “equal in stature and focus to its spaces in the art capitals of New York and London.” The gallery also launched an office in Shanghai in September of last year.

Designed by architect Bill Katz, the new 2,500-square-foot space will feature private viewing rooms, a library, a research center for the gallery’s advisory services, offices, and exhibition spaces, and will be inaugurated in conjunction with the seventh annual Art Basel Hong Kong fair. The gallery will be run by Danqing Li, senior director of Asia.

“Since opening our Shanghai office in 2017, Lévy Gorvy has experienced significant business growth in Asia and we are thrilled to have found our home in the vibrant and historic center of Hong Kong,” Li said in a statement. “This beautiful site will provide a physical platform to better serve our clients and to create exciting programs for our international audience.”

Commenting on the gallery’s operations in Asia, Gorvy said: “Over the last twenty years, members of our team have developed strong relationships with collectors and institutions throughout Asia, and have brought these connections to the culture of our gallery. The opening of our Asia headquarters with this unique Hong Kong space further formalizes our commitment to this incredibly important region.”

Lévy Gorvy also welcomed Serena Chien to its Asia team. She will serve as a business representative in Taiwan, dedicated to sales, client development, and advisory services. Chien previously worked at Sotheby’s and Whitestone Gallery, both in Taipei.
